I have no idea how the game is implemented, nor -- as far as I remember -- does anyone here, exactly. (And given the kind of problems that we see, we're probably better off not knowing!) So this is a purely empirical exercice. I should completely expect the sweet spot to be different for every configuration.
In your case, the widescreen mod -- which I do not use -- may be integral to your sweet spot being different from mine. Or maybe your sweet spot *is* generally better than mine --- I would have to reinstall and test to see how long it takes Apollo to kill the monster, but I *think* it took him a full month and change in my case.
