I have no idea how or why this happened. Now, every time the other monitor is plugged in, instead of creating a new desktop, it just moves it over to the other monitor. On top of that the secondary monitor is incredibly slow and laggy. Only one screen will ever be present in the display config.

Never mind! I solved it myself! So no need to help, but I'd still like to know why/how this is able to happen. How a program could mess with things like that

Glad to hear it, however please take a moment to describe exactly how you fixed it so folks searching the forum for troubleshooting clues in the future may benefit from your discovery.

All I did was press Fn+F6 and select the proper screen setting. I'm guessing you could fix the issue by also reconfiguring xrandr/arandr. What seemed to happen was that HOI3 just reset all my monitor settings.
