Zombie Army 4 Dead War ultrawide cutscenes fix 3.0.1


6 Screenshots

About This File

The tool previously allowed to change field of view, but as of the May 12, 2020 game update, there is an FOV slider in the game.
The remaining functionality is removing black bars from the cutscenes at 32:9 and wider resolutions.

  • Simply unpack the archive and use the small patcher to target the ZA4_dx12 and/or ZA4_vulkan executable in the game folder depending on your preferred graphics API.
  • Be mindful of the large file size of the executables which will be backed up and take up space if left untouched.

Tested the latest EGS Vulkan and DX12 game versions at 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

FOV works great, but black bars remover somehow does not?

Anyone else having that issue?

In the current version, do you first press F9 at any time, then F8 when the black bars first appear?

Yes, it also turns to the green font as I press F9, but F8 does not remove the black bars for me. (Vulkan)

Very strange. The green text is a good sign though.
Are you on the latest game version? What is your resolution? Can you confirm that you press F8 at kill cameras or cutscenes, not before or after them?

Not working for me. I started the game, started the mod, hit F10 and then hitting F5 and or F6 with no visible change. Is there even supposed to be a sound when hitting any buttons to let you know its functioning? Cause if so I hear nothing on key presses. Also tried running the mod as Admin and nothing.

The trainer is not working anymore since last game update (june, 22). It was working flawlessly before this update.

The removal of black bars from the cutscenes still works fine on my end. For the kill cams, the solution was offset-based, making it virtually impossible to support the Epic, Microsoft Store and Steam versions at once.

8/24/21 = Playing at 32:9. The F9 cutscenes black bar remover is not working for me. When pressing F8, remove kill camera black bars, the text turns green on the trainer itself. But nothing seems to happen at all when I press F9. This is on Vulkan. Should I maybe try running the game using DX12 instead?

The old code targeted by the trainer was nowhere to be found after the latest game update, so as I looked for the new code to modify, I also felt it would be nice to clean up, so the result is an up-to-date patcher that will allow you to remove the black bars from the cutscenes.

      The small patcher removes the side black bars from the game at 21:9 and wider aspect ratios.

      Unfortunately, it does not address the native issue of the Cultural Insight FMVs being cropped. As a workaround, those can be watched properly at any time from the menu by switching to a 16:9 resolution in the game, or on YouTube.

      Tested on the latest Epic Games Store version at 2560x1080 and 5760x1080.

      This Flawless Widescreen script will let you override width safe area that is bounded to 90%. It will relocate HUD in the center if you play ultrawide or multi monitors.
      It will also remove the black bars that the game engine forces in cinematics (rendered in 16/9 natively).
      Install first Flawless Widescreen.
      Download the script and unzip it in your Flawless Widescreen folder.
      Run it and click MassEffectAndromedaTM on the left frame.
      On the right frame, game fixes are available to en(dis)able.
      Use the sliders for the HUD to relocate in game.
      Alternatively, you can force HUD safe zone values by modifying the the profOpts_profile file that is located in the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect Andromeda\Save folder.
      Locate the GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight and GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth lines and modify them.
      Valide range is 0-1 (float value)
      Note that any modification in the game settings may erase your modifications in file.

      Option 1 (patcher):
      Run the small patcher and target the game file as instructed.

      The tool allows to change the first-person FOV in real time and exceed the limit of 120. For convenience, it is also bundled with existing solutions, including FOV fixes and the cutscenes fix for ultrawide resolutions, so not all of the functions may be compatible with an already patched exe.
      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. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Contains the interactions FOV fix and ultrawide fixes based on killer-m's work, as well as an FOV check fix from Wintermance.

      Tested the latest Ubisoft Connect version at 2560x1080, 2560x1440 and 5760x1080.

      The small patcher removes the side black bars from the game at 21:9 and wider, though the UI spanning would be undesirable for a multi-monitor setup.
      Simply unpack the archive and follow the instructions of the tool to modify both of the files.
      If you still see the black bars at the gameplay after patching, manually change the Screenmanager Resolution Width and Height decimal values in the registry after quitting the game.
      The misplacement of the UI tutorial arrow keys is a known issue.

      Tested the latest GOG version at 2560x1080 and 5120x1440.
