Custom Resolution (Wide Screen)

Postby >>GameHacKeR<< » Tue Aug 18, 2015 1:50 am

This is a step by step (with pictures) how to guide to change the game's resolution

The Pictures In This Guide Will Be Setting The Resolution To 1920X1080 + 1280X720 After Following This Guide You Should Understand How To Set Any Resolution Examples 1366X768 4096X2160 3840X2160 5120X3200
(This guide will work for other idtech4 games\mods as long as you can still open the command console (To force open the console press left "ctrl" then left "alt" and then acute key "`" located next to "1" and under "esc" and above "tab" which is above "caps lock" but the console in Doom Reborn is force enabled when launched using the "DoomReborn.exe" so it should open but just pressing the acute key "`")

Step 1 - Open the console

Open the console when the game loads to the main menu

type the following "r_customwidth 1080" and then press enter

After pressing enter, press "up" on the arrow keys to quickly display the previous command you typed so you can quickly change it as followed in the next images press enter at the end of each command typed

(ignore the error that the RebornConfig.cfg can't be created and carry on it'll work only if you randomly get it)

Recently i played again Doom 3 using the Abdolute DOM 3 HD mod 1.6 Anf you know what? It had the 1920x1080 resolution option on the games options i didnt have to put any console commands. So why you dont you do the same? Add more resolution to the game trhough the resolution settings.

Oh we definitely will :)
I'm not 100% sure how to do it myself, Brent is the man with the skills for this job, and i'm sure he's just as egger as everyone else for this option.

This tutorial is here to ensure the people looking for this option know how to set it in the meantime :)
