Editing the "Doom.Config" file in Steamgames/Doom3/Base will solve the issues you are having.

Or do r_aspectRatio 1

Thanks to OP for showing this to us. It helps.

However, this fails to maintain aspect ratio, resulting in distortion along the X axis (1920•1080), but that's not OP's fault. We need to realize that in order to get distortion-free resolution on contemporary widescreen / HD displays, there would have to be a massive amount of code edits—this game was written when BIG screens were 1024•768 CRT displays and GPUs were integrated into the motherboards.

Sure, back in 2004, when this game was released on PC, flatscreens were on the market, beginning to compete with CRT monitors, your average user could not afford the newer technology. That's why the devs didn't code for larger resolutions and more aspect ratios.

This literally didn't do anything at all. Keeps defaulting to 640x480.
