Fortnite not using Blackmagic eGPU for internal display with the set-eGPU.io script

Hi, I'm a newbie to the forum. I am running a MBP2018 13 inch with Blackmagic eGpu. I have run the ./set-eGPU.sh script and selected option 1. When I run Fortnite without a monitor attached, it defaults to running on the internal graphics card. Is there something I am missing? All help welcome.

2018 13" MacBook Pro [8th,4C,U] + RX 580 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (Blackmagic eGPU ) + macOS 10.14 & Win10 1903 [build link]

I'm in the same boat. I've tried using a FIT headless GS to mirror a display and the performance has improved to around 50fps but the input lag is very bad because of it. I feel like the issue is the set-eGpu command accelerates the epic games launcher but not Fortnite itself for some reason. The same problem exists for steam driven games.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
