    Playing Doom III on Widescreen

    My dad currently has my laptop so I've been unable to start Doom III. I was wondering if you can change it to support 1280x800 in the options section. If not, does anyone know how to make it fit a widescreen? Thanks.

    On my Gateway M505X, it's able to stretch to the entire LCD screen with the video driver from Gateway. Though, after I had install Omega's driver, I am having resolution problem with regard to black border whenever I use a non-native resolution.

    Actually, by going into the doom III cfg file, you can make it play well on widescreen so it doesn't appear stretched.

    check out www.widescreengamingforum.com

    do a search for doom3, one of the threads there has the directions to configure it....

    i believe it was setting something similar to:

    seta r height =800
    seta r width =1280
    seta r =-1

    than having to change the aspect ratio from within the game...better check the forum to be sure, i'll post it if i read it again too
