Default Doom3 fullscreen problem

Hi everybody,

I'm having a bad problem holding me from buying Doom3 retail.

My pc is a low-power one, and requires doom3 in 640x480 to be playable.
Now, if I setup the game in fullscreen 640x480... game goes fullscreen, but the "gaming screen" is just as little as 640x480 on the bottom-left of the screen !

My monitor is a flat panel 1280x1024 completely configured and working with 6111 drivers.
In short: game goes fullscreen, but don't change the screen resolution, only the gaming window and puts it on the bottom-left of the screen

Xorg 6.8.1 - Slackware current


Many thanks fo any suggestions !!


Fabio, Italy

Make sure 640x480 is in the modes list of your X config file.

Create a custom resolution in the xorg.conf file and run the X server (or xinit) with it.

Looks like you don't have the 640x480 resolution declared on your xorg.conf
Should look something like this:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection
