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
They should look like this in the config file:
The aspect ratio is found near the bottom of the file. Then you can enjoy graphics like this:

Please note: If you change anything in the graphics options in game, then the custom settings will be lost and you will have to re-edit the cfg file.
