World War Z ultrawide & multimonitor fix (mostly obsolete) 1.30 or any version


1 Screenshot

About This File

The mod has been been removing pillarboxing affecting gameplay, cutscenes and menu since game launch and up to October 29, 2019.

After update 1.40, it is no longer required but still removes all pillarboxing from the menu and fixes the stretching issue caused by FidelityFX CAS.

Download the archive and use the password pcgw to unpack it with software like PeaZip or 7-Zip.

Launch the tool and target \en_us\client\bin\pc\wwzRetailEgs.exe in the main folder.

The solution is essentially approved by the developers that said it won't be bannable, then pinned the message on their official Discord.

Released

Old screenshots replaced with a new one, as the game now natively supports wider resolutions at gameplay and cutscenes.

That's one of the 69 AV engines, and it's obviously wrong. You're free to test it in a sandbox. It's a hack so its behavior naturally triggers some AV.

You can also go for Option 1.

Again, it is essentially a hack tool and it's a new file so it triggers some AV, same as my FOV changer for The Sinking City and many other patchers / mods / trainers on WSGF and elsewhere.

You can think I'm running a botnet from the thousands of downloads by now but you can also create a completely isolated sandbox environment and patch the file within it, or simply use the modified exe that should not trigger any AV.

      The small patcher will unlock all resolutions in the game and remove the black bars displayed at 21:9 and other resolutions.
      Tested the latest GOG version at 2560x1080.

      Tiny patchers to correct the stretching of the game at 21:9 resolutions.
      Download and unpack the archive matching the desired resolution / aspect ratio. Run the patcher and target the game file as instructed. Download and install DPfix. In DPfix.ini, set the render and present Width and Height values to match your resolution. Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and 3440x1440. The FMVs will remain stretched and may need to be manually re-encoded.

      Compared to the existing solutions from WSGF made to remove the black bars appearing in the game at 21:9 and wider resolutions, this tool perfectly matches the vertical field of view of each scene to that of 16:9, also allowing to see and adjust the current FOV in real time.
      Download the archive and unpack it using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Apply the fix before the main menu appears or at the main menu before loading into a game. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Inspired in part by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The tools unlock resolutions in the game and remove black bars.

      For Microsoft Store:
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the key as instructed to toggle the fix. Select any in-game resolution and apply it. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      For the GOG and other versions, download the patcher and make sure to follow both steps and patch both files covered by the tool.

      The game might reset to 1920x1080 and windowed at the start of each chapter, which is a known issue with the game itself. In that event, simply go to the options and set them back.
      Tested the latest Game Pass and GOG versions at 2560x1080.

      The small patcher removes the side black bars from the in-engine cutscenes and corrects the issue of reduced field of view when starting a new game.
      Simply unpack the archive and follow the instructions of the tool to patch the game. Tested the latest Epic Games Store version at 2560x1080, briefly at at 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
