About This File

Unpack the archive with software like 7zip, then patch the main game exe with the tool.

This will remove the letterboxing (black bars) from the game, resulting in more vertical FOV than ever before. There will be some vertical stretching of the menu and subtitles.

If you have the game on Steam, you will first need to adapt and follow the first steps of my DQB2 guide in order to apply the patcher. Such are the rules!

It still unpacks without issues on my end. What did you use to attempt to unpack it? Try another app, such as WinRar, 7zip or PeaZip.

Virustotal writes that 8 viruses were found in BeyondLetterbox.exe 😥

That is false flagging but it is normal for patchers, trainers made in Cheat Engine and other fixes. It is one of the reasons WSGF had to be retired and move to reddit.

The latest PCGamingWiki policy on files also acknowledges this. Still, keep scanning files in VirusTotal, look at the details or even do your own sandbox testing for malicious activity when you think a file is suspicious and potentially harmful.

The best I can do is tell you that it's not when it comes from me.

Why even bother with a password?

It adds a useless layer of complexity, that some people have experienced issues with, and yet it has absolutely no benefit.

If I wanted to reupload your tool on another site (I don't), I'd just repack it anyway.

Removing the password requirement is the biggest reason I can see for actually providing another download.

I agree but there's no other simple way around the problem.

OK it's PCGW policy, but it's overkill, and a totally useless policy.

You don't protect a damn thing by using the same password, for every archive.

Also I've never seen any archive get flagged like that, only exes, etc, uploaded without archiving.

That's also what the WSGF issue was about, raw directly executable files, not archived ones.

This policy should be changed to simply requiring archives, which fulfils the required false positive avoidance, and as a secondary benefit, reduces the download size, and thus entire hosting requirements for the site.

Archives make sense, passwords don't, but I now understand it's not your choice.

Thanks for your answer.
Headache for me : my whole game directory was on read-only protection !

The patch works fine 🙂 despite the fact 2 lines-subtitles are now out of screen !

i got the game on Steam, patched the main exe as directed, only the game crashes when attempting to launch now

the main exe is named BeyondTwoSouls_Steam.exe  is it because its the Steam version it's not working or is it something else.  I changed my folder from Read Only as another poster mentioned

It's most likely a Steamstub issue. Adapt and follow the first steps of my DQB guide to work around it. Sadly, I'm not allowed to go into detail about Steamstub unpacking on PCGW.

yes, that worked.  Although, I have to launch the game using the .exe because Steam will automatically replace it if I try running it through the Steam UI

I don't think that is how Steam updates work. There are a lot of cutscene skip solutions on the wiki that involve renaming or removing files. Unless verified or updated, you can use a modified exe to replace the old - just make sure it fully matches the old name.

I know this isn't totally related to the letterbox remover however I wonder if you can help.

I am running the latest Epic version and the letterbox remover works fine, however if I try to uncap the FPS using the patcher from the wiki it reverts the letterboxing, trying to hex edit manually the search strings aren't found.  Any suggestions?

Look for the bytes as hex values, not text strings. I updated the instructions in the article to reflect this.
I have no idea why the FPS patcher would affect the letterboxing though. It's not like it contains any of the game code to put it back in.

I did that to no avail, I even restored it to its default exe.  I did then manage to find and replace the two hex and then apply the letterboxing but the framerate is still locked to 60, am I missing something obvious?

 

EDIT: I even tried just the fps patcher, it says it worked but the FPS was still on 60

It's the always-on vsync, as described in the article. Here are the solutions the article also links to.

I did do that, but the first time I tried launching the game it deleted it and created a new one, I've never seen that happen before and I watched the file literally disappear and a new one pop up in it's place while Steam showed downloading 1 file for this game.  It's not a big deal, I just pinned it to my start menu and I'll launch it from there.  I mean, I'll only  be playing  this game for a few days max then I'll finish it and remove it from my storage.

Hello I'm new to this whole thing and created my account just to comment on this.

Whenever i use the Letterbox Remover the subtitles will sometimes only be half visible like It's sunk down at the bottom of my screen.

I really hope someone can help me with this problem.

PS I commented this once but i think i accidentally did it as a reply to someone 😛

      The trainer displays the current FOV and allows to change it at all resolutions in real time.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the keys as instructed All trainers based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      Tested the latest full GOG version and the Steam demo.

      The tools allow for support of any display aspect ratio and real-time FOV adjustment in Death Stranding. The gameplay and engine-rendered cutscenes will properly fill the screen, while the state of the pre-rendered cutscenes will depend on the used solution.

      Option 1:
      A trainer automatically detecting any resolution and allowing to make the zoomed pre-rendered cutscenes 16:9. Left alignment of the pre-rendered cutscenes is a known issue. The tool also allows to adjust FOV at any aspect ratio.
      Unpack the archive - the password is pcgw Launch the game, followed by the trainer Press the desired keys - ideally from the main menu and before any cutscenes Go to Graphics Settings and select your resolution under 21:9 Option 2:
      The known ultrawide solution made into patchers limited to common wide resolutions and keeping the pre-rendered cutscenes zoomed.

      Tested the latest Steam version at 1920x1080, 2560x1080, 3440x1440, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080 (HUD is spanned).

      I may have been the first to discover the common sense aspect ratio change solution (as seen on the WSGF Discord), but I am certainly not the one who published the bytes first (looks like it was FasterThanFTL). As such, I am not taking any credit for the patchers but you can buy me a coffee for the trainer based on many hours of 100% unique research, calculations and code.
    • By Rose
      Option 1: Use the included aspect ratio patchers to target \BloodstainedRotN\Binaries\Win64\BloodstainedRotN-Win64-Shipping.exe within the game folder.
      Option 2 (works with Game Pass):
      Download the included trainer and unpack it with software like PeaZip. The password is pcgw Launch the game, then the tool. Press the shown keys to remove the black bars and adjust FOV as desired. To avoid upscaling, edit %LOCALAPPDATA%\BloodstainedRotN\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini and at the end add
      ResolutionSizeX=YOUR_WIDTH
      ResolutionSizeY=YOUR_HEIGHT
      and set FullscreenMode=0
      Changing game settings may reset the above.
      Tested the latest GOG and Xbox Game Pass versions at 2560x1080, 3840x1080, 5760x1080 and 3240x2160.
