Doom Eternal Flawless Widescreen Fix for 32:9/Surround 1.0.0


2 Screenshots

About This File

Flawless Widescreen plugin for fixing wrong aspect ratio in 32:9 and Surround/Eyefinity resolutions.
 
- Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Flawless Widescreen\" and unpack the content of this archive.
(If it asks about overwriting some folders, accept - it will add new files and not overwrite any existing ones.)
- Start FWS and select the plugin (under Helifax section).
- Enable the plugin.
- Play the game.
 
Known Issues: The MAIN MENU will be stretched (incorrect Aspect Ratio) but in-game & cinematics everything will be using correct Aspect Ratio!
 
I can only test it in 32:9 and it works perfect! I can't test Surround/Eyfinity resolutions but it should work fine, I expect!
Cheers,
Helifax

Hello All (Especially those wanting Eyefinity / Surround) ,

This Patch worked great!!!

I use Triple Monitor 7680 x 1440 and had to do the following:

  • Launch Game (without Flawless Widescreen running) as normal
  • Once inside game got to setting ("K" key for quick access)
  • Inside setting go to the video tab
  • Under Display Menu, go to first field "Window Mode" and select "Borderless Window" from the options (Fullscreen / Windowed)
  • Apply Changes ("F" key for quick access) and Exit Game
  • Now Start "Flawless Widescreen" and have program running as Helifax instructed
  • Start Doom Eternal

Enjoy the game in 7680 x 1440 🥂

sorry, I know this sounds really dumb, but I can't get to step 1.  I downloaded the file, but then when I unzip them, I only get two folders

1) plugins

2) plugincache

I don't even see how I can install flawless widescreen?   Can someone please assist?  Thanks!

Thanks for getting back to me.   I don't have a triple monitor though.  I have a 49 inch wide that is 5120x1440... do I still have to do the "borderless window" step?

Sorry, one more question...I manually start this everytime before launching doom right?  This won't mess up any other games or anything because I mainly use iRacing and don't want to mess up the display settings on that...

Hello Keith.

You do not need to do my additional steps as it is intended for those that seek how to do Eyefinity / Surround (multiple monitors).

You just need to follow as Helifax (I added photos to help):

- Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Flawless Widescreen\" and unpack the content of this archive.
(If it asks about overwriting some folders, accept - it will add new files and not overwrite any existing ones.)
- Start FWS and select the plugin (under Helifax section).
- Enable the plugin.
- Play the game
 
Start only when you want to play Doom, and close it after done playing Doom.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this, I appreciate it.  Computer novice here.  I'm jumping into this game because it's a total blast from the past 🙂

So I can follow your instructions easily from here, but then what do I do with the download that is attached to this page?  When I unzip it, I get these two folders...do I have to paste them into Flawless widescreen folder?   Sorry again, I know how dumb all this must sound

Hiyas Keith,

Yes just paste them into the Flawless Widescreen folder (as shown in my original photo above).

So if you want to unzip the file from Helifax on your desktop, go ahead... just take the 2 folders and put them directly into the Flawless Widescreen folder.

i cant go into settings at all when in surround, crashes to desktop. only way to change settings is; nvcp/disable surround, start game and change settings, then back to nvcp/enable surround, then back to doom settings and reset aspect ratio.. a pain

luckily i figured out how to do my keybinds out of settings

Are you guys having this problem?

Hey there! I install and run Flawless widescreen with no problems, until I copy this plugin to the flawless widescreen folder. Then flawless widescreen will boot up and disappear/Crash? immediately.

 

I've tried uninstalling flawless widescreen, and reinstalling it, and downloading and re unpacking the doom eternal fix, and still the same thing happens every time?

      Marty Stratton, executive producer of Doom Eternal, has announced that Denuvo Anti-Cheat (not to be confused with Denuvo Anti-Tamper) will be removed from Doom Eternal in Update 1.1 which will be "rolled-out to players within a week". This follow the recent patch which implemented Denuvo Anti-Cheat in Doom Eternal faced backlash last Thursday.
      The developers will consider "giving campaign-only players the ability to play without anti-cheat software installed":
      The initial reason id Software implemented anti-cheat in the first place is clarified:
      The main announcement can be seen here on the /r/Doom subreddit:
      It remains remains to be seen whether id Software's decision to remove Denuvo Anti-Cheat again in Doom Eternal is permanent.

      Doom Eternal's latest update now include Denuvo Anti-Cheat, not to be confused with Denuvo Anti-Tamper. Unlike Anti-Tamper, Anti-Cheat runs at the ring-0 kernel level of your PC. 
      The Anti-Cheat can be uninstalled, however it is reportedly required to run Doom Eternal, even in singleplayer mode. 
      One consequence of this new anti-cheat software is that it is now incompatible with Proton (Linux) and its ProtonDB rating has fallen from a previous Platinum award - to completely unplayable.
      Irdeto, the company that maintains Denuvo, has been working on this software for quite some time and it appears that Doom Eternal is the first game to use this software. This announcement about the software was made back in March 20, 2019:
      In this Doom Eternal announcement of May 14, 2020, they state:
      Check out our Denuvo wiki article which has been updated with information about Denuvo Anti-Cheat.

      Bethesda appear to have accidentally released the DRM-free exe of Doom Eternal on the Bethesda.net store according to this post on /r/CrackWatch. Within the game package was an exe file which had the Denuvo-free exe. Bethesda have now patched the exe file with the correct Denuvo DRM.

      The release date of Doom Eternal, previously November 22, 2019, has now been pushed back to March 20, 2020.
      Whilst this is obviously disappointing for PC gamers, extra time to polish a game can never hurt.
      Doom Eternal was also pushed heavily as a launch title for Stadia in November 2019, so this delay will have other ramifications on the platform. However Bethesda are still going to be releasing games on Stadia from their back catalogue: Doom (2016), Rage 2, The Elder Scrolls Online, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
      The information about the delay came in this tweet:
