More testers on different setups required!!

Game exhibits strange behaviour in multi-mon resolutions. In windowed mode, the game is perfectly hor+, however the HUD is not centered. When run in fullscreen, the HUD is centered but the game becomes about 30% hor+ and 70% vert- . Expand the "Additional Ingame Shots" section to see this behaviour. This is tested on NVSurround, reports from Eyefinity show the HUD is NOT centered fullscreen but the AR is correct.
