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.

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.

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.

Dear @Rose, I'm eternally grateful for your contributions and patches to bring ultrawide support to games that don't have it for some reason.

But can you please provide general instructions whenever possible, pretty please? I'm on Linux and running exe patchers isn't a thing here (hey, Wine and Proton!). I can surely launch a hex editor and make a few find-and-replace's, probably it'll be even faster than downloading, extracting and running patchers. Thank you.

Is there any way to use the 32:9 patcher on the Game Pass version?

      Tiny patchers to correct the stretching of the game at 21:9 resolutions.
      Download and unpack the archive matching the desired resolution / aspect ratio. Run the patcher and target the game file as instructed. Download and install DPfix. In DPfix.ini, set the render and present Width and Height values to match your resolution. Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and 3440x1440. The FMVs will remain stretched and may need to be manually re-encoded.

      Compared to the existing solutions from WSGF made to remove the black bars appearing in the game at 21:9 and wider resolutions, this tool perfectly matches the vertical field of view of each scene to that of 16:9, also allowing to see and adjust the current FOV in real time.
      Download the archive and unpack it using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Apply the fix before the main menu appears or at the main menu before loading into a game. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Inspired in part by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The tools unlock resolutions in the game and remove black bars.

      For Microsoft Store:
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the key as instructed to toggle the fix. Select any in-game resolution and apply it. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      For the GOG and other versions, download the patcher and make sure to follow both steps and patch both files covered by the tool.

      The game might reset to 1920x1080 and windowed at the start of each chapter, which is a known issue with the game itself. In that event, simply go to the options and set them back.
      Tested the latest Game Pass and GOG versions at 2560x1080.

      The small patcher removes the side black bars from the in-engine cutscenes and corrects the issue of reduced field of view when starting a new game.
      Simply unpack the archive and follow the instructions of the tool to patch the game. Tested the latest Epic Games Store version at 2560x1080, briefly at at 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The tool corrects the reduced field of view at the cutscenes at 21:9 and wider resolutions, and allows to bypass the game's max resolution checks, making it support resolutions like 5120x1440.
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the FOV key to correct it in real time (undoing will require a cutscene restart) Press the force resolution key, then select and apply any resolution if the game does not support yours. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest Game Pass version at 2560x1080, briefly at 5120x1440, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
      Kudos to PhantomGamers for a hint that helped analyze the game variables.
