Dual monitor doesn't work anymore in the beta after the update

I just updated my Shadow Beta. When it started, my second monitor wasn’t used for Shadow - Shadow just worked on my first monitor. When I looked in the menu it said “Monitor recognized”, but when I said it should activate the second monitor it loaded for a short amount of time and after my second monitor was still not activated and in the menu was still the information “Monitor recognized”.


Now I switched back to the stable version, there isn’t any issue, so I think the problem is in the new beta.


With best regards,

Hello @ALetsPlay,

Is the issue in regards to your dual screen still occurring?




I just tried the beta again and there is no issue anymore.
