As is known, the ShiraPlayer is based Stellarium opensource software. Until recently, it was used for one projector systems that includes one fisheye lens projector or normal projector with spherical mirror systems. After this, multiprojector system software developers will be able to adapt their systems to ShiraPlayer. To do this, I have developed plug-in projector class. May be find header class files in source codes who want to develop for multiprojector systems a plugin dll. This features can be used up to 1.8.9 versions.

Initially, I have developed plugin for one computer includes multiprojector systems.  Thanks to this plugin, users can projected ShiraPlayer to their dome with one more projector on same computer. That needs special warp and blend files. This files is found in ShiraPlayer main directory after install Shira MultiProjector plugin.
