LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga: How to Configure a Split Screen Monitor
When it comes to split screen gaming, there are a few key things you need to consider in order to get the most out of your experience. If you’re looking to pick up LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, then you’ll definitely want to check out this quick guide on how to configure your split screen monitor setup. In order to make sure that everyone playing has an optimal experience, it’s important that you set up your monitors correctly.
Method 1: Through Nvidia Surround in Nvidia Control Panel
Nvidia Surround lets you make a virtual monitor via the Nvidia Control Panel.
- Specs: All Nvidia GPUs past the 600 series work.
- For AMD users, do something similar with the equivalent “AMD Eyefinity” technology. Instructions Below.
- Search for Nvidia Control panel / Install if need be.
- Navigate to 3d Settings – Nvidia Surround and enable and configure.
- Adjust your bezel to around 100-300. You don’t want the road to be perfectly straight or it will hide pixels and make the cutscenes hard to read. The larger the number, the more pixels in between and redundancy near the center of the screen.
- You will likely be limited to 60hz unless you have full GSync Monitors. This is perfectly fine for most gameplay.
- I recommend aligning the monitors as best as possible in terms of height. Adjust brightness/contrast/gamma to be the same.
- Enable fullscreen in-game, and voila it works.
Method 2: Window size and granular settings:
- Close game first.
- Navigate to the following in Windows File Explorer (Windows Key + E shortcut)
- C:\Users\W\AppData\Roaming\Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
- Paste your windows username in place of “W” then paste address into File Explorer. Location of config should load in. I recommend Notepad++ to edit.
- Open the PCCONFIG.TXT which has all sorts of display, audio, and other settings.
- Begin editing Video Settings in video section

Method 3: In-Game for 2 monitors split screen co-op
- Pause the game.
- Navigate to Video Options in Options
- Enable windowed and drag the edge of the window to the desired resolution.
- If you ecounter issues, restart the client.
Also, bear in mind the cutscenes are slightly different from the main experience and they may feel unappealing — they are split between both screens and don’t always sync up well.
Hopefully, this guide will help anybody wanting to configure the best possible monitor configuration for their LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga gameplay experience. You can decide for yourself whether 4k feels like the right choice for you, but if you’re able to run at 1440p with a solid frame rate, you should be more than satisfied with the visuals. It’s a game that can keep you occupied for hours on end if you have proper local co-op, but it’s much better if you have a friend to play with.
