Oversized title screen [solved] caused by Aero


Recommended Posts

Nice that this was fixed. This Aero disabling should be put into the wiki FAQ part so that it is not forgotten.


I can add it during the next few days if someone does not beat me to it.

You can configure Windows to leave Aero in its full glory (if you like that sort of thing) and just edit the properties of the Doom 3.exe file (right click the icon and select Properties). Go to the Compatability tab and tick the checkboxes for "Disable visual themes" and "Disable desktop composition". You may want to do this for TheDarkMod.exe as well, but I don't think that is necessary.

Here's another interesting symptom in my problem. The issue I have described also consistently occurs in windowed mode when the game first runs. It is corrected by alt+tabbing away to another window and then alt+tabbing back again.


Now if I could only figure out how to do this and still stay in full screen, I might have something. Any ideas?




Alt tabbing in and out causes the doom 3 renderer to restart. You can effect this change yourself with a vid_restart in the console.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
