Can you play at higher resolutions
I have a gtx680, whenever I try to play at any resolution higher then 1280x1024 it crashes and says something about an opengl driver. I would like to play my native 1920x1080 or something close to it?

Is that possible?

ok so you want to go into

wherever you installed steam>steamapps>common>Quake 3 Arena>baseq3>q3config (open it with notepad or word document)

then the lines you want to edit are

seta r_mode "whatever it is" to seta_r mode "-1" (with quotes)
seta r_fullscreen "whatever it is" to seta_r fullscreen "1"
seta r_customwidth "xxxx"
seta r_customheight "xxxx"

Thank you that worked! I was able to play multiplayer wow brought back so many memories.

Only thing is game moved so fast I can't control it, any optimal mouse settings I should use?

you can turn off windows mouse acceleration control panet>mouse>pointer>make sure the slider is at 6/10 cus thats just the best setting>uncheck mouse acceleration

and in Quake 3, setup>controls>adjust mouse speed to liking

You don't have to use the q3config file to edit your resolution actually.

Just open console and do the above in this format:

/seta r_mode "-1"
/seta r_customwidth "xxxx"
/seta r_customheight "xxxx"

These three setting changes will require a game restart.


If you want to tweak your field of view for your resolution, you can do this at any time in the game, and do NOT need to restart Quake 3 to have the changes.

/seta cg_fov "xxx"

Here is what I used for my triple screen as a example:

/seta r_mode "-1"
/seta r_customwidth "4980"
/seta r_customheight "900"

/seta cg_fov "150"
