How do I use this? when I hit download, I can either open it, and nothing happens, or I can save it as a text file.... I am very lost. Would love some guidance on what im doing wrong

Try the saving as a text file option but make sure it actually replaces the original file after the fact.

Save it anywhere, then copy and paste. If there's no prompt at that, you may want to change the file name to match the target

Thank you Rose!  It worked perfectly. Really appreciate you creating this and making it available to the community!

Edit: I should add that I'm using it for 3440x1440 and there's not screen cutoff that I can tell.  Everything appears to be scaled perfectly.

This shows up as an unwaders virus on download that will launch ads on your computer. Please investigate.

The modified game file (option 1) will not get flagged by AV.

The new patcher (option 2) is meant to modify files, so it gets flagged by some AV software (7 of the 71 AV engines on Virus Total), and even of those 7 most reasonably describe it as a "crack" - you are indeed to hack a game to force it to support your resolution.

There is nothing about the virus you mentioned, so it might be that your PC is already infected by something that affects what you download or see online.

Does anyone else have problems with menus not working when in 3440x1440?

Yep, the game locks in the menus using this unlocker.  Can't pause the game.

Do your menus work fine at this resolution?  If I go into the menu, the game becomes unresponsive.

I played through the game without issues about a year ago. I additionally tested it today by accessing the options menus and the ship log after loading a saved game. I did not experience the issues at all. The unlocker doesn't affect any code but the few parts related to aspect ratios. How do I reproduce the problem?

Edit: It looks like a global issue seemingly unrelated to ultrawide. See the linked posts.
