    However there is only one correct "in game" seat position in order for it to all match up correctly. I remember reading a lil while ago (sorry for not being able to give credit to the poster) about modeling in some sort of a way to position one self in the game accordingly. Using the steering wheel overlap method is good but i do wish there was a more accurate way.

    Yeah, the steering wheel overlap method only works if both wheels are the same diameter. The seat (or more accurately, camera) position 'should' be where your eyes would be in the actual cockpit. I'm not aware of any way for users to determine this with any accuracy--afaik, only the modders can get the actual coordinates for the camera. This is really such a simple thing to do, and it should be the same for every single person--it is not dependent on your personal setup.

    Then again sometimes there is no helping.

    Wow now that is one incredibly poor setup... poor setup yet not for poor people huh?

    As Top Gear has stated. Ones driving ability does not increase with the size of their wallet. Same can be said for Knowledge of sim racing setups, audio equipment and Love making.

    True, but having a fat wallet has the tendency of enabling you to practice more.

    I was primarily speaking in general terms, not specific cases. Much easier to pull in a nice suit and with six, seven figure income than being homeless and destitute for example. =)

    It's not too late however you can still negociate, as long as you didn't get married yet!
    Just explain clearly what can't be negociated (for me computer/devices that go with it) and it works! i got a very good waf with that.
    Could invest money in track ir + 3 screens etc... etc..

    Back to the topic ; i set my fov to 27 on my 6048*1080 setup and it looks great!

    Resolution doesn't really have anything to do with it though. Monitor size and eye distance from the center of the middle monitor please.

    It would be better to get distance to the top and bottom of the screen of the center monitor as well as the vertical height of the center monitor.

    Unless the monitor is significantly higher or lower than eye level distance to center will suffice. And since they're 1920x1080 monitors (with 96 px of bezel corrections apparently), it's easy to calculate the height of the monitor. The less measurements the less room for wrong measurements. =)

    I have done the math and you get around a 1 difference when you measure from the bottom most edge vs the middle of the screen. You are going to move your head forward and backward more then that will matter.

    Surely then that measurement from your eyes becomes the hypotenuse rather than the measurement to the center being the adjacent, so the maths would not alter... the opposite side (from center of screen to bottom (or top) would be constant.... just my 2 penneth.

    Well in truth you would need to solve for two triangles. One formed above the eye position and the other inverted below it. Divide up the vertical segments of monitor height and alter the hypotenuse's based on that.
