Game won't launch
My game won't launch without adding "+set r_fullscreen 0" to the launch options and even then that only allows me to launch it in a 1280x720 windowed mode. Does anybody have a fix for getting it running in fullscreen. I'm running Win8 if it makes a difference.

here's what i managed to do so far:
on C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Saved Games\id Software\DOOM 3 BFG\base
theres D3BFGConfig.cfg. Open it and find set r_fullscreen 0 and set it to -1.
Then find:
set r_windowHeight "720"
set r_windowWidth "1280"
and
set r_customHeight "720"
set r_customWidth "1280"
and set the values for your native resoltution. Save the file and make it Read-Only, because the game will try to reset the file to 1280x720. Now my game works great! This happens because of an incompatibility with Nvidia OPTIMUS on some systems.

Thanks for the reply but your solution only partly works for me. The resolution changes fine but the game opens partly off screen and if i add "+set r_fullscreen 0" to launch options I get a window with my chosen resolution. I've also tried a combination of numbers from 0 to 4 which have failed. Any suggestions??
Bro, do you even praise? Apr 19, 2013 @ 2:07pm 
have you tried removing the "+set r_fullscreen 0" from the shortcut and setting it manually to -1 in the file?
SMX87 Apr 19, 2013 @ 2:09pm 
yeah I've tried that and get the full resolution but partly off screen

What is the value of your set r_vidMode?
SMX87 Apr 19, 2013 @ 2:14pm 
it's 0
Bro, do you even praise? Apr 19, 2013 @ 2:14pm 
Can you paste here the contents of your D3BFGConfig.cfg so i can compare to mine?

Just by pure curiosity: are you running doom 3 on a samsung series 7 chronos laptop? xD
SMX87 Apr 19, 2013 @ 2:25pm 
It works, good work thankyou very much LordCookies. I should pay more attention to config files myself and I would have possibly noticed that. Its a macbook air 3,1 actually! No real problems runninganything so far on it yet.
