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.

      The patcher unlocks 21:9 and any other resolutions unavailable in the game, however the UI will be too cropped to navigate every settings menu at anything wider.

      Played the latest Steam demo at 2560x1080 for about 30 minutes and very briefly at 3840x1080 to test the solution.
      Please leave a comment to let me know how it works in the full Epic version.

      The tool removes black bars from the game in real time at 32:9 and wider resolutions.
      Compared to the great existing WSGF solution by Helifax, it is compatible with the Game Pass / Microsoft Store version of the game, automatically sets its resolution based on that of the desktop and has no aspect ratio limitations.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Run the game, followed by the tool Press the Enable key as shown Set the in-game resolution to any of the available options All tools based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest Game Pass version at 5120x1440 and 11520x1080.
