    Bug Description: A20: when i launch the game on Steam, and choose "show game launcher", checking the "Show Unity screen selector" box does nothing, the game will always just launch (on the wrong monitor) right after pressing run, access to the screen selector would instantly fix having to put the game into a window, move it to my bigger monitor, and then putting fullscreen back on. 


    Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:


    1) launch the game with Steam

    2)press "Show Game launcher"

    3)check "Show Unity screen selector"

    4)press "run"


    Actual result: the game launches on the wrong monitor


    Expected result: the Unity screen selector should appear and allow me to specify the monitor i want to play the game on.

    Apparently, the Unity Screen Selector has been deprecated since v 2019.1 on the engine. (here's some reference in from Unity Forums).


    From what I could find, the way to set how screen resolution and target monitor behave needs to be either set with the in game option or by using command line parameters.

    I personnally use -popupwindow -monitor 2 in the Steam launch options to use a full screen window and to start the game on my second monitor. I'm sure there are other useful command line parameters out there. I guess the solution would be do document the parameters and to remove the Screen selector checkbox from the launcher.
