Still got this problem Biker?

 

First step, is to make a display group with all 3 monitors and get that setup with the Catalyst Control Centre

Then, you edit your \doom 3\base\autoexec.cfg file to have

 

r_mode -1

r_customWidth 5040

r_customHeight 1050

 

 

r_mode -1 = nonstandard aspect ratio, the other two set the parameters to use.

dosent work, the game needs a hack to fix the aspect ration as its showup the wrong 4:3 aspect ratio in-game. And I dont have 3 monitors anymore, asd the third was borrowed from a friend etc.

 

But do you have still two monitors? Then you could still test f.i. a "2:1" aspect ratio resolution if I create code that support such resolutions?

Yes. I have 2 monitors so I can do testing only. At 3360*1050 I am fairly sure that doom3 will exhibit the same aspect bug as it did at 5040*1050. Than if your hack works I can borrow my mates monitor again..

To make sure I'm understanding this properly, from what you typed either

 

1> You put in the autoexec.cfg those lines, and the ingame menu says 4:3 but it is clearly running at the specified parameters resolution values,

 

OR

 

2> You put in the autoexec.cfg those lines, it is actually running at 4:3, and the other monitors are either inactive, or mirroring the one displaying, which results in the same picture 3 times.

 

 

in the case of #1, ignore what the menu tells you

in the case of #2, your display group may not be active, configured properly, or configured at all
