I reinstalled Q3 and Wolfenstein after getting my new 24" Dell monitor, I've changed the game resolution to 1920x1200 using...

r_mode -1
r_customwidth 1920
r_customheight 1200

In game it works fine, but any .ROQ's playing like the intro movies just show up as black. It's not a big deal, but annoying none the less. Any way of fixing this?

Yes, I am experiencing the SAME issue. I hear the sound but the video is blank where the id video usually is. I just converted to the same settings and from what I'm reading online it's due to the video not supporting widescreen.

Yeah, known issue. Using a custom engine like ioQuake fixes this issue.

oh lol, I'm sure obsidian is very happy to have this resolved after 13 years :owned:
