Red Dead Redemption 2 ultrawide, multimonitor, FOV mod 3.2


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 3.2   See changelog

Released

Made an adjustment to prevent crashing related to the FOV toggle after the November 14 update.

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.

      FOV value is not reset to default after certain in-game cut-scenes Unpack the archive
      Copy all files to the game folder, binkw32.dll should be replaced
      In the Settings.ini file, you can change the following settings 
      [FOV]
      FOV = 60.000
      FOV value in degrees
    • By Rose
      The trainer for Xbox Game Pass and patchers for EGS and future versions remove pillarboxing (black bars) from real-time rendered cutscenes, menu and dialogue screens and offer the option to adjust FOV to match that of 16:9.
      Use software like PeaZip or 7zip to unpack the archives. The password is pcgw
      Removing the pillarboxing results in both more horizontal FOV and less vertical FOV at dialogue, and no vertical decrease at menu and terminal screens. The 32:9 option can also be used to achieve more vertical and horizontal FOV at 21:9.
      Making changes to Engine.ini to increase FOV through Y-axis calculation is no longer recommended, as it gets reset by finishers and possibly other in-game events. Make sure the config is in its default state to avoid FOV issues.
      The mod does not address the cropping of the viewmodel and stretching of FMVs.
      In order to force unsupported resolutions, edit GameUserSettings.ini and set the ResolutionSizeX=, ResolutionSizeY=, DesiredScreenWidth=, DesiredScreenHeight= values as desired - e.g. 5760 and 1080. Getting into the settings in the game will undo the changes, so make sure to have configured the game to preference prior to editing the config.
