Quake 3 widescreen support

Archived from groups: (More info?)

Hey, I just got a nice bargain, namely a 24" sony crt monitor (compaq
branded). At last!

How is quake best set to run on this monitor?

So far I have tried the widescreen option in the menu, but this did not work
full screen, it appeared on a small portion of my desktrop why?

I have also tried an autoexec.cfg with the following:

seta r_customHeight "1200"
seta r_customWidth "1920"
seta r_mode "-1"
seta cg_fov 120

1920*1200 is my desktop resolution and this was the only way to get the game
fullscreen in a widescreen res.

Does setting fov to 120 cause punkbuster problems?
Is there any way to set the refresh rate?

Any help, suggestions advice etc appreciated.
