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.

What's New in Version 3.0.1   See changelog

Released

3.0.1:
Added a trainer that may or may not work for the Microsoft Store version.

3.0:

The latest game update removed the old code, so it is time to start over:

  • Completely overhauled and made into a patcher to remove black bars from the cutscenes at 32:9 and wider.
  • Removed the non-functional killcam black bars removal code made impossible to maintain with the release of the game on multiple storefronts.

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 will unlock all resolutions in the game and remove the black bars displayed at 21:9 and other resolutions.

      Compared to the existing solutions from WSGF made to remove the black bars appearing in the game at 21:9 and wider resolutions, this tool perfectly matches the vertical field of view of each scene to that of 16:9, also allowing to see and adjust the current FOV in real time.
      Download the archive and unpack it using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Apply the fix before the main menu appears or at the main menu before loading into a game. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Inspired in part by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The tools unlock resolutions in the game and remove black bars.

      For Microsoft Store:
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the key as instructed to toggle the fix. Select any in-game resolution and apply it. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      For the GOG and other versions, download the patcher and make sure to follow both steps and patch both files covered by the tool.

      The game might 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.
      Tested the latest Game Pass and GOG versions at 2560x1080.

      The small patcher removes the side black bars from the in-engine cutscenes and corrects the issue of reduced field of view when starting a new game.
      Simply unpack the archive and follow the instructions of the tool to patch the game. Tested the latest Epic Games Store version at 2560x1080, briefly at at 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      The tool corrects the reduced field of view at the cutscenes at 21:9 and wider resolutions, and allows to bypass the game's max resolution checks, making it support resolutions like 5120x1440.
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the FOV key to correct it in real time (undoing will require a cutscene restart) Press the force resolution key, then select and apply any resolution if the game does not support yours. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest Game Pass version at 2560x1080, briefly at 5120x1440, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
      Kudos to PhantomGamers for a hint that helped analyze the game variables.
