I just spent, like, an HOUR trying to fix this. I went into Control Panel > Display > Change Display Settings. It said that 1920X1080 was reccomended, so I tried that in fullscreen, but I'mm still missing a good chunk of the bottom and right side og the screen, where it shows the weapons and players at the start of the game... Can anybody fix this for me?! I will provide any further information, given you ask.
open the console and type
This should set the game to match your desktop resolution.
Thank you, but how do I open the console? I play TF2 and the grave key is used to open the console there, is it the same case here?
EDIT: Scratch that, found out how to use the console, but the command didn't work? Should it take effect the next time you start up the game?

It is the same... but you know how you have to tick 'Allow dev console' in source games, you have to do similar for QL:
To open the console at first, use CTRL+ALT+`
If you then type 'com_allowconsole 1' it shortens it to just needing ` on its own...
How are you finding time to play Quake with the new MVM update in TF2 - it's sucking up all my gaming time for now xD
Well, I tried Scout and Heavy. Heavy was the easier of the two in my opinion, honestly. So many bullets... O.O
EDIT: Oh, HOW? I thought you meant how I liked it. Well, I've wanted to play with my brother and a friend, but insane wait times, and I usually get booted out after I connect. But I don't have any money so I can't get the Tour of Duty tickets... Q.Q
EDIT2: Oh, I had it to play on browser becauise I may or may not have tried to make the game MUCH larger than the screen and tried the command, and it worked this time. Thanks.
EDIT3: BLARGG!!! It didn't work. Again!

followed by vid_restart
Oh, I didn't do vid_restart. What does that do? Just restart the game, or something else?
EDIT: I see what it does. I think the problem is that r_mode -2 still has the screen too large.

Same problem here: http://www.quakelive.com/forum/showt...t-on-my-screen (not solved I guess)
And here: http://www.quakelive.com/forum/showt...off-the-screen (fixed but no specific instructions provided)
It's probably a problem of your screen vs some virtual desktop resolution. Double-check all your display settings.
Lam, would you like a screenshot and then maybe you could help more?
