Red Dead Redemption 2 ultrawide, multimonitor, FOV mod 3.5


Message added by Andytizer

About This File

The tool removes black bars from the in-game cutscenes, cinematic cameras, shops and a number of other areas at 21:9 and wider resolutions. Since version 2.0 it also removes pillarboxing from the photo mode. Since version 3.0, it allows for custom FOV adjustment.

Launch the game first, then the tool. The password for the archive is pcgw

As expected from a trainer based on CE components, this tool does get falsely flagged by some anti-virus software as a trojan, while the rest correctly mark it as a "hacktool".

Use the tool provided here at own risk and ideally avoid playing RDR Online without completely disabling the fix - especially the FOV hack.

Tested at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080. Additionally confirmed as working by two volunteers from WSGF.

You can buy me a coffee here.


What's New in Version 3.5   See changelog

Released

  • Updated the photo mode code location that prevented the rest of the main (F5) script from working after the game update.
  • Slightly updated the UI.
  • No new features or changes.
  • We've had a good run since December 2019 through the updates!

Okay so I just tried to deactivate the black bars right before I started the companion mission with Charles Smith in Horseshoe Overlook, and it said that I did do it by pressing F5 but when the cutscene started the black bars were still showing for whatever reason, and my monitor resolution is 2560x1440. Is there any reason why it's still showing? Thanks!

Truthfully, I have not tested the trainer at 16:9 resolutions, as I focus on wider aspect ratios and the issue is much more relevant to those resolutions where it's not only top and bottom black bars as seen on consoles and intended by the developers from the start, but also side bars as you can see in the screenshots. All I can suggest at this time is trying the second option, which should be used before any cutscenes appear (not in real time).

For some reason this isn't working for me now, yesterday it did but now the black bars are still there in photo mode. Any ideas how to fix it? Thanks :D

Is it possible to play the whole game in cinematic mode? Even the shootings? I just want to play the game with black bars because I want to make some RdR2 movies and it's annoying that the black bars keep appearing and disappearing. I want them to always be there. Or always gone. My resolution is 1920x1080.

You would have to configure a custom resolution in your graphics card driver settings of 1920x823. Then you could set this resolution in the game settings and your monitor/graphics card would display it with black bars. You should also use this fix when you do this. 🙂

Rose, could you please help me. I can't get the .exe to work. I have tried everything and I just want to play the game normally on my 21:9 monitor without the black bars in the cutscenes and cinematic mode.

What steps did you take to try and get it to work? Did you make sure the anti-virus software is not in the way?

I launched the game and started my save file. Then I launched the .exe and returned to the game but no matter what I do, pressing F3 or F8 or something else, nothing happens and the black bars around the frame are still present. 

I have scanned the .exe with my anti-virus software (Windows Defender) and my Pc-clean-up-tool but they don't see it as a threat.

That looks like doing it correctly, though currently the button to remove the black bars is F5 or F11. Do the buttons function on your keyboard otherwise? Does the in-tool text turn green after you press the buttons? A short video of all the steps would be great to have. You can send it privately if you choose to do so

what do you mean with the in-tool text? The tool doen't start a program. Could that be the problem?

That suggests the anti-virus software is blocking it without notifying. You should see the window featured in one of the screenshots.

Yes, that must be the problemt then. I would like to thank you so much for your help :D. I will try to get the tool working and hope I can play the game properly. Again, thank you for your your help.

Dunno if it will help but I had to run it as administrator to get to to work.

@Rose ... any comment on my earlier post about F5 only removing the bars from the sides or is that the difference between F5 and F11 in order to get past that cut scene loading bug?

That behavior is consistent with what you can see in the tool descriptions, so you are correct.

I was just reading that having just started the tool up and came back to apologize ... my bad for not reading thoroughly.
Thanks again!

Great tool. Thanks for the upload. Just want to chime in to say I'm looking forward to the day we have a permanent FOV solution. That and the vignette are the two biggest display issues with the game imo.

This mod has broken my menus.

 

In menus such as the wardrobe, it sets the camera to one extreme or the other

This

Or

This

 

And even with the mod disabled it still does it......

 

Edit: Loading the mod and pressing F3 to set it back to the default FOV fixes this.

Yes the vignette effect really ruins the game for me

I wish I could have the default ugly vertical bars to let me play. I really have huge stretches out horizontally and cannot play at all. Wish this mod could include a aspect ratio fix as the old Flawless Widescreen program did for GTAV and others.

Greetings, rose.

Is it possible to implement a "vertical-camera" option?

(Sry for posting twice. My comment option was bugging, oddly enough)

I'm having trouble with the ultrawide aspect ratio in the game. When displaying at 3440x1440 I just get the 2560x1440 image stretched horizontally :(

I'm wondering if this tool could have the ability to just adjust the horizontal FOV only, so I can fix the view I'm getting when playing the game?

Hello! I would just like to double check before I use this trainer: can the creator (and maybe anyone else that uses this and sees this comment) confirm that there have still been NO bans for using this? I am a bit wary of using a hacktool... I'll be careful not to use it online but I know companies have banned for less.

Thanks!

Just wondering if anybody knows what the FOV is when you have set to max in the game?  And how many times are you guys/gals pressing F8 when using the mod.  I was pressing it 15 times.  Than I went to 20 and that felt pretty good.  Any more than that and you start getting a fish eye effect.  Really just wish I could set to 90 or 100 in a config file and forget about it.  Or better yet, if it was actually included in the game?!?!  Wouldn't that be amazing.  The least they could do is give us actual values for the FOV in the menu instead of some random slider.  Thanks for this mod, makes playing in first person much more enjoyable!! Hopefully we can save our FOV in a future update.

      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!
