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.

      The tool removes black bars from the game at ultrawide and wider resolutions.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip or PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the hotkey as shown to enable the fix. In the game, Set the Video Resolution to Desktop. Alternatively, if already selected, switch between 1080p and Desktop or press Alt+Enter twice. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Although the changes are small enough to be part of a convenient patcher, Origin DRM, the common nature of Microsoft Store apps, and unpatched Steam DRM would not allow binary patching in this specific case.

      Tested the latest Origin version at 2560x1080, briefly at 3440x1440, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The tool removes black bars from cutscenes and allows to manually control the game FOV in real time.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip or PeaZip - the password is pcgw Launch the game first, followed by the tool. All trainers based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest Origin version at 2560x1080 and 5760x1080.

        Some menu UI scaling and cropping issues are to be expected. For example, some customization decals may be out of view unless the fix is toggled off. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software. Tested the latest GOG version in borderless briefly at 2560x1080, 5760x1080 and 11520x1080. Dialogue choice options were out of view at the latter, though the gameplay was fine.

      The tool removes black bars from the game at 21:9, 32:9, 48:9 and other wide resolutions.
      Download and unpack the archive using software like 7zip or PeaZip. The password is pcgw Launch the game Launch the tool Press the "Enable" key While in the game, briefly switch to the Borderless or Fullscreen mode. Use the tool to manually adjust the UI size at 32:9 and wider resolutions. Known issues:
      Stretched loading screens and rare FMVs. Minor UI display and alignment issues. Use the UI adjustment keys if necessary. The window mode switching requirement is also undesirable, hence the version number!
      Tested the latest Epic version at 2560x1080, briefly at 3840x1080, 5760x1080, 5120x2160 and 7680x1080 on a single monitor.
