Setting a custom resolution or widescreen in Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy


MagSul

To set a custom resolution or to get Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy in widescreen, first determine what your monitor resolution is or what dimensions you'd like to have. Then enter those values below. If you have a 1080p monitor, use the below numbers. 

  • r_customWidth 1920
  • r_customHeight 1080
  • r_mode -1
  • vid_restart

After applying changes, use the command "vid_restart"; to apply those changes and reload the game/map you are in.

If you're using OpenJK, EternalJK, JK2MV or other modern client mods, you can also use r_mode -2 to automatically set to fullscreen and your monitor's native resolution.

If you want to go back to windows mode, be sure to set it back to r_mode -1.

Make sure you do /vid_restart after entering the 3 commands, or nothing will happen.

I did this and my resolution is 1920x1080 it makes the width of the game to 1920 but keeps the height at default, I play on a laptop and it still gives me the 1024x768 box zoomed into 1920x1080 resolution

Make sure you are typing the height command correctly. If width works and height doesn't, it sounds like user error. You can also try manually editing the cfg to the correct numbers.

I mean let's be honest it's prob user error

 

Every time I copy and paste the code it from the above post and change the resolution the command does nothing, when I look in the config and change it does nothing, I can't imagine it being anything else at this point.

What laptop is it? And are you sure your resolution is actually 1920x1080? Are you able to change the resolution if you turn off fullscreen?
