About This File

The patchers and trainer remove pillarboxing from the game, resulting in more horizontal FOV.

Some of the in-game images and cutscenes do not appear to be wide enough to fully fill the screen, but the main cutscenes, menu and gameplay become free of black bars.

  • Use one of the patchers to modify \ChildrenOfMorta_Data\Managed\Assembly-CSharp.dll within the game folder.
  • For the Game Pass version, use the included trainer at 21:9 - the password for the 7zip archive is pcgw.

Tested briefly at 21:9, 32:9 and 48:9 in the latest GOG and Game Pass versions. Resolutions wider than 21:9 were affected by severe terrain visibility issues.

What's New in Version 1.5   See changelog

Released

Created and added a simple aspect ratio based trainer for the Game Pass / Microsoft Store version.

The password for the archive is pcgw

Hi Rose,

Does this patcher work only for the GoG version? I currently own the Steam version.

How can I contact the author about a patcher for the Steam version because this does not seem to work.

Unless I'm doing something wrong, I am suppose to select file path, "childrenofmorta.exe", correct?

No, that is not the file to patch. Read the instructions!

If you have a 3440×1440 43:18 monitor open \ChildrenOfMorta_Data\Managed\Assembly-CSharp.dll with a hex-editor and find and replace "all" 398EE33F with 8EE31840

Thank you for replying, OneDeltaTenTango!

I got it working with the Patcher. I didn't see the instructions on the Patcher itself, and I was patching the .exe instead of the file you mentioned above.

But that's cool that I can manually modify with hexedit! I'm surprised no one mentioned this! Thank you so much!

I have a 3840 x 1600 ultrawide monitor and I still have tiny (0.25") black bars on side using the 21x9 patch. This is minor but if you can update the patch to use the full screen that'd be great. Also, the "Home Status" banner on the top left of the main hub is cut off.

I added patchers for 3840x1600, 3440x1440 and similar resolutions. Someone told me they've played through a lot of the game with the mod, so I hope the Home Status issue isn't significant. Fixing UI can be a nightmare.

No, the "Home Status" isn't a significant issue. Just a flaw I was pointing out in case you weren't aware of it. Anyways, I've applied the new 3840x1600 patch from the 1.1 version and the small black bars on the side have now disappeared and the game uses the full screen so thank you very much. 

The "Home Status" banner is still cut off (albeit less so) but this is minor. The current patch is great as is.

Hi Rose, is there a way you can make a patcher for the game pass version ?

Thanks

Excuse me, but could you possibly add a 16:10 and 4:3 version? Top-down action games benefit a lot from being able to see a greater distance vertically. You'd think the game would at least have 16:10 support, but it pillarboxes it to 16:9, which is annoying.

I have both a 16:9 and 16:10 monitor, so I'd appreciate the following resolutions: 1440x1080, 1728x1080, 1920x1200, and 1600x1200.

I'll be sure to buy you a coffee, I'll be watching this file.

      Compared to changing FOV with the UE4 unlocker, this tool will not produce as much decrease at cutscenes and the FOV will not be reset after each level.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Launch the game Launch the tool and press the keys as instructed All trainers based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      Tested the latest Microsoft Store / Game pass version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      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.
