Observation black bars removal 1.0


8 Screenshots

About This File

Unpack the files to the game folder so that they are next to Observation.exe to remove the cinematic letterboxing (horizontal black bars).

Tested the latest version at 2560x1080 and 1680x1050 on the first and one of the last levels.

Let me know in the comments if you still come across letterboxing and attach your save files so I can take a look.

      The game features FMVs and rendered cutscenes that get pillarboxed at 21:9 and wider resolutions.
      This patcher removes the black bars from the rendered cutscenes and has no effect on the FMVs as there is no way to hack a pre-recorded video to add more content.

      Simply unpack the archive and patch the main game exe.

      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and briefly at 5760x1080 in both DX modes.

      By default, Mafia II Definitive Edition not only adds black bars to all cutscenes at 21:9 and wider but also simultaneously vertically "crops" pre-recorded FMVs.
      The two included patchers serve as two options (don't use both!):
      Remove all black bars - FMVs stay cropped (vert- from 16:9). Remove black bars only from rendered cutscenes and fix FMV scaling. Tested the latest Steam version primarily at 2560x1080, briefly at 3440x1440 and 5760x1080.

      The tools for Steam and Microsoft versions of Halo: Reach and Halo 2: Anniversary 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 is not possible for Xbox and would be inconvenient to Steam users, as it would likely require replacing files before each launch in the anti-cheat-enabled mode.
      Tested the Xbox / Microsoft store version at 2560x1080 (both) and 5760x1080 (Reach).

      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.
      Now it only allows to remove black bars from the game.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Run the game, followed by the tool Press the shown key to allow for modding at any time Press the black bars removal key - ideally when they first appear All tools based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest EGS Vulkan and DX12 game versions at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
      The pillarboxing removal functionality is reliable while the kill cam black bars removal will need continued updates of this tool.
