About This File

The tools for Steam and Microsoft Store versions of Halo: Reach, Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, ODST, and Halo 4 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 would be inconvenient, as it would likely require replacing files before each launch in the anti-cheat-enabled mode.

Tested the Xbox / Microsoft store version at 2560x1080 (all games), 3840x1080 (Halo CE, 3, ODST, 4) and 5760x1080 (all games).

What's New in Version 6.1   See changelog

Released

  • Made the Microsoft Store trainer functional again (the game had an exe name change).
  • Updated the code of the Halo CE solution to make it compatible with the latest and older versions.

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.

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 tool for Microsoft Store / Game Pass and possibly other versions removes pillarboxing (side black bars), preserving the letterboxing heavily used in the game for artistic and gameplay purposes.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip or PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game and set all the options as preferred. Launch the tool. Press the hotkey to toggle the fix on and off in real time (having it on will break the options menu). All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      The FOV correction approach is inspired by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Game Pass and GOG versions at 2560x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The small patcher unlocks all resolutions in the game and removes black bars.

      Make sure to follow both steps and patch both files covered by the tool.

      The game is likely to reset to 1920x1080 and windowed at the start of each chapter, which is a known issue with the game itself. In that event, simply go to the options and set them back.

      The small patcher forces the game to use the desktop resolution, removing the black bars at 21:9. Disregard the resolution shown in the settings after patching.

      Partial UI cropping is a known issue typical to Unity games but the game appears to be fully playable at 21:9 despite the barely visible health bar. Wider resolutions would likely cause important elements to disappear altogether.
      Tested the latest GOG version at 2560x1080.
