Is there a patch or something that enables widescreen resolution settings?

Open the in game console and type this...:

r_aspectRatio 0, 1 or 2

Try it.

Also use r_mode -1 to set custom resolutions with...:

r_customHeight "yyynumber" r_customWidth "xxxnumber"

And finally to make all this effective do a vid_Restart command. :D

You could just edit the DoomConfig.cfg:

Find these lines:

seta r_customHeight "xxx" seta r_customWidth "xxxx"

Change the x's to set your resolution. Now find this line:

seta r_mode "x"

Change the "x" to "-1". Find this line:

seta r_aspectRatio "x"

If your screen aspect ratio is 16:9, change the "x" to "1". If your screen aspect ratio is 16:10 or 15:9, change the "x" to "2".

As with any .ini solution, if you cannot find any of these lines in your DoomConfig.cfg file, just add them in manually.

This way you don't have to bother with the in-game console, and all the settings will be properly adjusted when you start the game.

Thanks for the answers, but it didn't work.

I changed "seta r_mode" to value -1. I added the line "seta r_aspectRatio" with value 2. (my screen is 16:10) "seta r_customHeight" was changed to "900" "seta r_customWidth" was changed to "1440"

My screen resolution wasn't altered. I tried doing it ingame. Inside the game, r_mode was set to 5, misteriously, so I changed it back to -1. After a vid_restart, I got a gray screen for a few seconds and then the game crashed to desktop.

EDIT: It worked. I tried changing it while ingame again and the game didn't crash.

To keep the setting don't save it on Doomconfig.cfg but on Autoexec.cfg because the first are overwritten on every D3 start.
