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 small patcher removes the side black bars from the game at 21:9 and wider aspect ratios.

      Unfortunately, it does not address the native issue of the Cultural Insight FMVs being cropped. As a workaround, those can be watched properly at any time from the menu by switching to a 16:9 resolution in the game, or on YouTube.

      Tested on the latest Epic Games Store version at 2560x1080 and 5760x1080.

      This Flawless Widescreen script will let you override width safe area that is bounded to 90%. It will relocate HUD in the center if you play ultrawide or multi monitors.
      It will also remove the black bars that the game engine forces in cinematics (rendered in 16/9 natively).
      Install first Flawless Widescreen.
      Download the script and unzip it in your Flawless Widescreen folder.
      Run it and click MassEffectAndromedaTM on the left frame.
      On the right frame, game fixes are available to en(dis)able.
      Use the sliders for the HUD to relocate in game.
      Alternatively, you can force HUD safe zone values by modifying the the profOpts_profile file that is located in the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect Andromeda\Save folder.
      Locate the GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight and GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth lines and modify them.
      Valide range is 0-1 (float value)
      Note that any modification in the game settings may erase your modifications in file.

      Option 1 (patcher):
      Run the small patcher and target the game file as instructed.
      Option 2 (trainer, supports Microsoft Store):
      Unpack the trainer archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Launch the game Launch the tool Press the keys as instructed to remove the black bars and enable FOV modifications, then manipulate in real time. Tested the latest GOG version at 2560x1080 and 7680x1080.

      The tool allows to change the first-person FOV in real time and exceed the limit of 120. For convenience, it is also bundled with existing solutions, including FOV fixes and the cutscenes fix for ultrawide resolutions, so not all of the functions may be compatible with an already patched exe.
      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. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Contains the interactions FOV fix and ultrawide fixes based on killer-m's work, as well as an FOV check fix from Wintermance.

      Tested the latest Ubisoft Connect version at 2560x1080, 2560x1440 and 5760x1080.

      The small patcher removes the side black bars from the game at 21:9 and wider, though the UI spanning would be undesirable for a multi-monitor setup.
      Simply unpack the archive and follow the instructions of the tool to modify both of the files.
      If you still see the black bars at the gameplay after patching, manually change the Screenmanager Resolution Width and Height decimal values in the registry after quitting the game.
      The misplacement of the UI tutorial arrow keys is a known issue.

      Tested the latest GOG version at 2560x1080 and 5120x1440.
