About This File

The patcher removes black bars at all resolutions, although it does not address the UI cropping issues present in the game at 21:9 and wider, making it likely inapplicable to 32:9.
The in-game notes can be read without closely inspecting them to work around the issue.

Simply unpack the archive and follow the instructions to patch the specified game file.

Thanks to Dopefish for playing through the game to test the solution at 2560x1080.

      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 trainers for Microsoft, Epic and Steam game versions, and patchers for executables remove pillarboxing (black bars) from real-time rendered cutscenes, menu and dialogue screens and offer the option to adjust FOV.

      Making changes to Engine.ini to increase FOV through Y-axis calculation is no longer recommended, as it gets reset by finishers and possibly other in-game events. Make sure the config is in its default state to avoid unexpected issues.
      The mod does not address the cropping of the viewmodel and stretching of FMVs.
      In order to force unsupported resolutions, edit GameUserSettings.ini and set the ResolutionSizeX= and ResolutionSizeY= values as desired - e.g. 5760 and 1080. Getting into the settings in the game will undo the changes, so make sure to have configured the game to preference prior to editing the config.

      The tool allows to remove black bars from the game at 21:9 and wider and increase or decrease field of view in real-time at any resolution.
      Prior to the October 7 update, it compensated for the natively reduced FOV and lacking FOV slider, now resulting in increased vertical FOV with the bars removed.
      Download and unpack the archive using software like 7zip or PeaZip. The password is pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the keys as instructed. Tested the latest Microsoft Store / Game Pass and Steam versions at 2560x1080.

      The tool removes black bars from the gameplay and in-level cutscenes at 21:9 resolutions. 32:9 and wider resolutions are not supported due to the main menu UI issues.
      Download and unpack the archive using software like 7zip or PeaZip. The password is pcgw Launch the game first, followed by the tool. Press the keys as instructed while in the main menu of the game. If already playing, switch to windowed and back. Tested the latest Xbox Game Pass / Microsoft Store version at 2560x1080. Additionally verified by a WSGF member at 3440x1440.
