I have a triple display setup with two 1080p monitors and a third 4:3 one, and I had some free time to kill, so I decided to give Doom3 BFG edition a try. The problem is that, for me it started full screen in a display that I didn’t want to play on, and in a screwed up resolution. As there are no helpful options in the settings menu, it was tricky to solve this issue, but finally I managed to fix it. So if you have this problem, here is the way to solve it:
- Open the
D3/BFGConfig.cfglocated in your user’s home folder
Saved Games/id Software/DOOM 3/BFG/basein a text editor.
- Look for the line
r_fullscreen. It is initially set to
1. By changing it to
3, you are able to move the game to different displays.
Now to fix the resolution, first change
–1, and then set the values of
r_customWidthto your desired resolution. In my case the settings are:
set r_customHeight “1080” set r_customWidth “1920” set r_fullscreen “2” set r_vidMode “-1”
