Solution updated ... 13th Jan 2010

For the full game the config tweak to get the TripleHead aspect ratio doesn't work the same as it did in the demo ....
However ... here is how you get your desired aspect ratio in the full version ...

Play the game once ... setting your aspect ratio in the games video setup menu to 4:3
Exit the game ...
Delete or rename the ... Profile.CBJericho ... file found here ... C:UsersUSERNAMEDocumentsCodemastersClive Barker's Jericho
Now go here ...
Win 7 users ... C:UsersUSERNAMEAppDataRoamingCodemastersClive Barker's Jericho
XP users ........ C:Documents and SettingsApplication DataCodemastersClive Barker's Jericho
... and open the ... game.cfg ... with notepad.
Change the line ...
PhysicalAspectRatio = 1.333333 ### Physical aspect ratio ... for 4:3

to anything you like ... such as ...

PhysicalAspectRatio = 4.0 ### Physical aspect ratio ... for 3 x 4:3
PhysicalAspectRatio = 4.8 ### Physical aspect ratio ... for 3 x 16:10
PhysicalAspectRatio = 5.333333 ### Physical aspect ratio ... for 3 x 16:9

etc.

When you run the game again it will remake the ... Profile.CBJericho ... file with your chosen aspect ratio.
In game you can change any of the advanced options without the aspect ratio getting reset ... BUT ... if you change the aspect ratio in the game you will loose the custom one you set and have to do the fix again.

Enjoy !
BTW ... this game is ACE !


A screenshot from the Steam version ... but it should work for the normal retail version ...
Click to see full size ...
Sorry they are so dark but finding a place where I could take comparison shots that were in the same place is difficult without playing lots of the game as it auto-saves only.

1280x1024 ...


3840x1024 ... incorrect aspect ratio before the fix ...


3840x1024 ... correct aspect ratio ... after the fix ...


5040x1050, PhysicalAspectRatio = 4.8 ... thanks to scavvenjahh
