Replacing my Steam game with any of the exe's results in errors when launching.

I cannot find "39 8E E3 3F" using an hex editor (HxD)  in Assembly-CSharp.dll

 

Could you please update / help?

 

Thank you in advance

use "39 8E 63 40" for 32:9. I tested and it works like a charmunknown.png

Guest 48:9 Support?

So none of the above exe files work anymore. Does anyone have the hex edit for us surround users at a 48:9 aspect ratio?

Why have three files that aren't distinguishable? How am I supposed to know which file I'm using when two share the same .exe name... Jesus christ.

The false flagging by Google left the founder of WSGF with no choice but to reupload all of the hundreds of files. He's been doing it manually and with almost no outside help. It's natural that some of the files do not have perfect descriptions, as the original authors have nothing to do with the uploads anymore.

It would be easier for you to try out each one than it has been for skipclarke to preserve the files as they are.

Knowing that, is there anything I can do to contribute to the uploaded files to make it more accurate?

I can rename the archives in this particular case based on your feedback. You can also communicate directly with skipclarke via the WSGF Discord server that can be found through the website.

If anyone is still having issues, I spent the last half an hour trying to get the game to run in 2560x1080 and finally managed to do it. 

All of the files on this page made my game crash on startup or didn't do anything.

Full credit to onelittleturtle and DireChicken on reddit for providing a solution: https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/a8qgyb/hollow_knight_219_fix/

You need to Modify the Assembly-CSharp.dll file yourself, using a hex editor and edit the file located at:

hollow_knight_Data\Managed\Assembly-CSharp.dll

All you need to do is replace all "39 8E E3 3F" values with "26 B4 17 40" and the game will work fine in ultrawide. It works fine on my 2560x1080, I am not sure about other resolutions as I don't have any other ultrawide monitors.

I have attached my Assembly-CSharp.dll to this post which has the fix applied already. All I edited were the values above.

If you are having an issue with black bars on top/bottom/sides in-game after editing it, the solution is to:

1) Verify the game files to re-download the original Assembly-CSharp.dll

2) Delete the Hollow Knight folder in the registry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Team Cherry\Hollow Knight\

3) Do the hexedit as described above

4)  Launch the game

Hope this helps!

      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 shown hotkey to toggle the fix on and off in real time.
        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 FOV tool attempts to automatically correct the field of view of the cutscenes at 21:9 and wider and allows for real-time FOV adjustment affecting all scenes at any resolution.
      As any trainer based on CE components, it may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Use software like 7zip or PeaZip to unpack the archive. The password is pcgw Launch the game first, followed by the tool. Press the hotkeys as instructed. The letterbox remover tool is a patcher, which may require the use of Steamless as a prerequisite on Steam.
      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080. The game copy was generously funded by AlRayes of Ultrawide Benchmarks.

      The mod previously removed pillarboxing from the gameplay and menu, as well as letterboxing from the cutscenes.

      The solutions for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden allow to correct the field of view at 21:9 and wider or manipulate it at any resolution in real time.

      Option 1 (new): A trainer for perfect FOV correction at every scene and FOV manipulation in real time.
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the hotkeys as instructed to enable or disable the fixes in real time. Option 2 (old): Patchers for 21:9 and 32:9 for gameplay FOV parity with 16:9.
      Unpack the archive, then use the tool to patch \ZoneUE4\Binaries\Win64\ZoneUE4-Win64-Shipping.exe in the main game folder. On Steam, use Steamless to unpack the exe before patching. Tested with the latest Epic Games Store version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The tool removes the black bars seen at ultrawide and wider resolutions and allows to control the field of view at any resolution in real time.
      Compared to the Shenmue Dojo solution, it does not affect the visibility of the journal and does not result in vertical FOV differences compared to 16:9.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip or PeaZip - the password is pcgw Launch the game and make sure the window mode is set to Borderless (or set FullscreenMode=0 and ResolutionSize in GameUserSettings for fullscreen) Launch the tool Press the hotkeys as desired The pre-rendered videos, menu screens and HUD will not scale to the screen width.
      All trainers based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest Epic version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
      Huge thanks to Johnnius_Maximus and Ultrawide Benchmarks for having generously funded the mod!
