About This File

This tiny patcher will unlock the 21:9 aspect ratio in the game menu, allowing to select ultrawide and many other resolutions under "???" for extra FOV.

Download the archive, unpack it, then use the included tool to patch \OuterWilds\OuterWilds_Data\globalgamemanagers


What's New in Version 1.0.2.100+   See changelog

Released

Removed the modified file so that the version-agnostic patcher can be used instead.

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.

its not an option to save over it 😞 that's why im confused! sorry, im bad at computers 😛

 

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.

      The patcher removes pillarboxing (vertical black bars) from the in-game cutscenes.

      Unpack the archive, then use the included tool to patch engine_x64_rwdi.dll inside the main game folder. Re-patch in the event of a game update.
      The solution currently has no effect on letterboxing, retaining the native vert- behavior compared to 16:9.

      Tested briefly at 2560x1080 and 5760x1080.

      Mod that fixes the small font issue in F.E.A.R., Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate. The archives are separated by resulotion, 1080p, 1440p and 4k (only for base game). Password for the archives is pcgw.
      Original authors of the mod are: Deus and montonero, the original Steam guide link and further instructions are here:

      The tool allows to change field of view and remove black bars from the game.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Run the game, followed by the tool Press the shown keys to allow for modding at any time Press the black bars removal key - ideally when one first appears Adjust FOV with the shown keys All tools based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest EGS Vulkan and DX12 game versions at 2560x1080, and briefly at 1920x1080 and 5760x1080.
