Halo: Reach, Halo 2 ultrawide cutscenes fix 2.0


9 Screenshots

About This File

The tools for Steam and Microsoft versions of Halo: Reach and Halo 2: Anniversary remove black bars at cutscenes in real time for ultrawide, superwide and triple monitor resolutions. The password for the archives is pcgw

Play the game in the Anti-Cheat Disabled mode for this to work. Launch the game first, then the tool.

The tool is a trainer based on CE components that may trigger some anti-virus software. Making it into a patcher is not possible for Xbox and would be inconvenient to Steam users, as it would likely require replacing files before each launch in the anti-cheat-enabled mode.

Tested the Xbox / Microsoft store version at 2560x1080 (both) and 5760x1080 (Reach).

You can buy me a coffee here.


What's New in Version 2.0   See changelog

Released

Updated with a solution for the FMV windowboxing in Halo 2 at 21:9.

Thanks for this, but: If I use this file/mod, the HUD  respectively the crosshair is stretched (outside the cutscenes). If I disable your mod (F5), so the HUD and the crosshair are quiet normal (the game is in widescreen-modus).

So I must playing without your mod and enable it with F5 when cutscene is coming and after it I disable your mod again.

I play in 21:9 in fullscreen (nativ) 2560 x 1080.

Can you possibly find a way to keep the HUD (and the crosshair) unchanged when using your mod?

Thanks for the feedback! For some reason I haven't been getting notifications in the past two days but I saw your reply earlier today and fixed the issue just now. It took quite a bit of an overhaul, so I set the new version to 1.5

Does your progress (in the campain) in the normal mode carry over to the anticheat bypass mode or is it 100% sperate from each other

Progress carries over, but achievements (and in-game unlockables) don't unlock.  So probably best to use this mod just for fun and immersion, but to save your achievement hunting (and legendary runs) for anti-cheat enabled mode.

Thank you very much for the fast fix!

Fine, thanks. But Rose has updated his fix (version 1.5) and it works fine now. I play it in 5120 x 2160 (DSR).

Hi! I've bought the Masterchef Collection from Steam and the fix has not worked for me. 
Is it possible that it no longer works with the current version or is it not working for me?

Thanks!

Tested as working in the latest Game Pass version in the "Anti-Cheat Disabled" mode just now. I don't have access to the Steam version but it should be on par with this one.

If I use the Halo version from the Microsoft Store with the Xbox Game Pass for PC, can I also use the fix?

And if so, how do I install the fix (other directories than Steam)?

Best Regards

Michael

You can. Just launch the game first, then the Xbox version of the tool. No need to install anything but it has to be launched every time you play.

      The game features FMVs and rendered cutscenes that get pillarboxed at 21:9 and wider resolutions.
      This patcher removes the black bars from the rendered cutscenes and has no effect on the FMVs as there is no way to hack a pre-recorded video to add more content.

      Simply unpack the archive and patch the main game exe.

      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and briefly at 5760x1080 in both DX modes.

      Unpack the files to the game folder so that they are next to Observation.exe to remove the cinematic letterboxing (horizontal black bars).

      Tested the latest version at 2560x1080 and 1680x1050 on the first and one of the last levels.
      Let me know in the comments if you still come across letterboxing and attach your save files so I can take a look.

      By default, Mafia II Definitive Edition not only adds black bars to all cutscenes at 21:9 and wider but also simultaneously vertically "crops" pre-recorded FMVs.
      The two included patchers serve as two options (don't use both!):
      Remove all black bars - FMVs stay cropped (vert- from 16:9). Remove black bars only from rendered cutscenes and fix FMV scaling. Tested the latest Steam version primarily at 2560x1080, briefly at 3440x1440 and 5760x1080.
