Fixing Doom3 BFG Edition on multi-display setups - Sat, Jul 20, 2013
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”
