About This File

The tools for the Steam and Microsoft Store versions of Halo: Reach, Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, ODST, and Halo 4 offer real-time solutions for the cutscenes at ultrawide, superwide and triple monitor resolutions. Depending on the game, they remove the black bars, correct the vertical FOV reduction or allow to choose between the scaling behaviors of the FMVs. 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 versions of all games at 2560x1080, 5120x1440 and 5760x1080.

You can buy me a coffee or become a patron. My newest fixes are available here.


What's New in Version 7.0   See changelog

Released

A full rework of the trainer caused by most of the old fixes no longer working after a significant game update which affected all the related functions and introduced new scaling approaches.

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.

Should I be concerned in regards to the safety of this file? I'm sure it's safe, but with windows flagging it and everything VIrus total is saying, I am a bit concerned.image.thumb.png.c30582d969c93e7fa3219d1fef7a0af8.png

Game has been updated this week, and this awesome trainer is now partially broken (Steam version). It's still working with Halo Reach (F5) and Halo 2 (F7). Ultrawide (21:9 ; 3440x1440) is now natively supported with Halo ODST and Halo 4. Halo CE and Halo 3 have tiny side black bars.

Thanks for your feedback. I got on it as soon as you reported the issues and found a lot of new code and that the scaling behaviors had changed indeed. This last game update made the 32:9 and wider experience in ODST atrocious, as the game is now both vert- and severely letterboxed, as demonstrated by one of the new screenshots.

It took many hours of experimenting and thinking to address the issues. The updated trainers are now out and they fix everything old and new: the black bars and the field of view reduction, plus the FMV scaling if you want to go from vert- to black bars or vice versa.

Hi there really appreciate the work you put in 🙂 just tested it and works great 🙂 Also I wanted to ask as I've seen you do this for GTA 5. Is it possible to make the cutscenes in the new GTA san andreas Definitive edition in ultrawide as I done it for the original san andreas but nothing works for the new one.

Nice! Regarding GTA, unfortunately, it's not a game I own. I'll definitely give it a look if I get it at some point in the future though.

Hello there! I have a 32:9 monitor and when I'm playing Halo 2A, the cutscene plays in 32:9 mode, and hence cutting some stuff in the buttom and the top. The cutscene is made in 21:9. Is there a way for you to patch this program to force the cutscene to be displayed in 21:9, even on wider screens? If you can It would be much appreciated! Thank you for making this incredible tool! In these two pictures you can see with and without the tool.
