copy and paste from another user -->
Earlier this year I dusted of my copy of DOOM 3, remembering the nice graphics, but when I installed it the game didn’t support my graphics mode (1920 x 1080) So I tracked down a way to edit the custom mode so it would work.


Doom not running in correct resolution


Find the “DoomConfig.cfg” file found usually in: C:\Program Files (x86)\DOOM 3\base.

Open the file and edit the following entires:

And modify them as follows:

r_mode -1 – means putting into custom mode
r_customHeight 1080 – means custom resolution height
r_customWidth 1920 – means custom resolution width
r_aspectratio 1 – this changes the aspect ratio 0 is for a 4:3 display, 1 a 16:9 display (widescreen) and 2 a 16:10 display
