hello everyone greetings!
i installed n quake and did some major changes to it with commands so it feels good for me.
i was playing like usual the other day when i hit the alt key on my keyboard and vid_wideaspect was set to 1 and vid_conwidth and vid_conhight and fov changed. I put vid_wideaspect back to 0 my fov to regular value and same with vid conwidth and conheight i put it to the value it was before but my qw still looks diferent like its screwed up with length and hight etc just totally diferent wideaspect feeling although i put it back to 0. Anyone know how to make this whole thing back to normal? too bad i dont have a backup of my config etc...
thnx in advance

i,ve experienced a similar issue.

for example, using wideaspect 1, if i cfg_load twice, conheight and width and fov will change.
if i cfg_reset and then cfg_load again, just once, everything is fine.
seems wideaspect calculates those values n times, instead of just one.
never argue with an idiot. they'll bring you back to their level and then beat you with experience.

Follow the instructions here:

You can ignore FOV related stuff if you want to, it's not mandatory.

i never noticed alt (-tabbing?) screwing with the conwidth/height ratio. i'll just manually set my fov back to 90 (recalculates to 108.. immediately because i use wideaspect 1) after alt tabbing and that fixes it for me.

ideally ezquake shouldn't change or recalculate these settings ofc. no idea what's going on there.
