About This File

The mod removes pillarboxing and adjusts the vertical FOV to match that of 16:9. The pre-rendered cutscenes will be unaffected.

Use software like PeaZip or 7-Zip and password pcgw to unpack the 7z archive.

Play through the dog customization part at the very start of the game at 16:9. Pressing alt+enter should work as well.

The mod is best used with DoF off. For higher FOV at 21:9, simply use the 32:9 patcher instead.

Tested the Game Pass version at 3440x1440 and 3840x1080.

This doesn't work for me, I am unable to edit any of the files in the Windows Apps folder. Not sure why it works for some and not for others. I do not have permission to edit them. I have read this is a kind of DRM measure.

The patchers were never intended to work with the MS store version, as it protects files and prevents modification. I uploaded a trainer for the MS store version today, so try that out instead.

I've uninstalled now, it is from Xbox Game Pass, I assume it's the same thing. Once it reinstalls I will give it a go, thanks for your help.

Hi, Thank you for for the time and effort put into this. I'm running the .exe file whilst playing the game pass version - the aspect ratio changes correctly with F5 but the border-less toggle doesn't seem to work - it highlights red in the program but doesn't remove the pillar-box in game. Any ideas?

Game Pass version says it can not access the file when trying to launch it after launching the game. Not sure what this error entails.

I had the same issue, restart your PC, launch the game and then launch the trainer. That's what fixed it for me. Takes a few seconds after pushing the button to start working.

For Game Pass you need to use the trainer not the patcher.

I know that. It still doesn't work. It says there's an access error. I even restarted my PC like someone said to above. Doesn't work.

Maybe you need to redownload the game, idk why it's not working for you.

Figured it out, my antivirus was blocking it. Can't believe I didn't think about that originally!

it is not working. I just tried to patch the game and i am getting "file was NOT patched" message. Was there a new update that broke the patch again?

Can you share your executable from the latest GOG or Steam version? Before you do that though, make sure you're targeting the right "Shipping" executable rather than the first one you see in the main folder.

      The game features FMVs and rendered cutscenes that get pillarboxed at 21:9 and wider resolutions.
      This patcher removes the black bars from the rendered cutscenes and has no effect on the FMVs as there is no way to hack a pre-recorded video to add more content.

      Simply unpack the archive and patch the main game exe.

      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and briefly at 5760x1080 in both DX modes.

      Unpack the files to the game folder so that they are next to Observation.exe to remove the cinematic letterboxing (horizontal black bars).

      Tested the latest version at 2560x1080 and 1680x1050 on the first and one of the last levels.
      Let me know in the comments if you still come across letterboxing and attach your save files so I can take a look.

      By default, Mafia II Definitive Edition not only adds black bars to all cutscenes at 21:9 and wider but also simultaneously vertically "crops" pre-recorded FMVs.
      The two included patchers serve as two options (don't use both!):
      Remove all black bars - FMVs stay cropped (vert- from 16:9). Remove black bars only from rendered cutscenes and fix FMV scaling. Tested the latest Steam version primarily at 2560x1080, briefly at 3440x1440 and 5760x1080.
