Yakuza 7 (Like a Dragon) Letterbox Remover/Ultrawide Fix 1.0.2


3 Screenshots

About This File

This is a patcher for Yakuza 7 (Like a Dragon) that removes the letterboxing at non 16:9 resolutions.

It is made using quickBMS to extract UI resource files and replace the letterboxing textures. 

To install:

  • 1. Extract the contents of the zip to "steamapps\common\Yakuza Like a Dragon\runtime\media\data"
  • 2. Run "letterbox_patch_efigs.bat"
  • 3. A backup of the original files will be placed within a folder marked "backup".

Known Issues:

  • Due to the nature of how the game was made, you will see outside of the 16:9 window. You may see visual glitches and so on that would have been hidden otherwise.
  • New patches for the game may break this. If it does, delete the backup folder and run the patcher again.

      The tools for Steam and Microsoft Store versions of Halo: Reach, Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, ODST, and Halo 4 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 would be inconvenient, as it would likely require replacing files before each launch in the anti-cheat-enabled mode.
      Tested the Xbox / Microsoft store version at 2560x1080 (all games), 3840x1080 (Halo CE, 3, ODST, 4) and 5760x1080 (all games).

      Download the included trainer and unpack it with software like PeaZip. The password is pcgw Launch the game, then the tool. Press the shown keys to remove the black bars and adjust FOV as desired. Alternatively, for the DRM-free version, use the included aspect ratio patchers to target \BloodstainedRotN\Binaries\Win64\BloodstainedRotN-Win64-Shipping.exe within the game folder.
      To avoid upscaling, edit %LOCALAPPDATA%\BloodstainedRotN\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini and at the end add
      ResolutionSizeX=YOUR_WIDTH
      ResolutionSizeY=YOUR_HEIGHT
      and set FullscreenMode=0
      Changing game settings may reset the above.
      Tested the latest GOG and Xbox Game Pass versions at 2560x1080, 3840x1080, 5760x1080 and 3240x2160.

      The trainer removes black bars from the game at 21:9 and wider. Unlike the existing solution, it works with Game Pass and any aspect ratio.
      Unpack the archive - the password is pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the key as instructed to enable and disable the solution in real time. Press Alt+Enter twice or switch to a different window mode and back for proper application. Known issues (as with the existing solution):
      Pre-rendered cutscenes are stretched. Post-process effects scale improperly, resulting in washed out image the wider it gets. Tested the latest Microsoft Store / Game Pass version at 2560x1080 and 7680x1080. The latter was significantly affected by blurred effects and missing shadows / ambient occlusion.
      Using MSAA is not recommended, as it causes additional washout - even without modifications, at 16:9.

      The tool allows to adjust field of view in real time, displaying the current value. It also corrects the vertical FOV decrease at ultrawide and wider resolutions.
      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 version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
      The AR to FOV automation code is inspired by killer-m's work.

      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.
      Use software like PeaZip or 7zip to unpack the archives. The password is pcgw
      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.
