Thank you!

But i'm having an issue...

Whenever i press the melee attack button, the game freezes and then crashes... Is it only me?

Maybe your version is not supported. I tested the fix on the current Steam version.

Check DevilMayCry5.exe hash.

Before the patch it should be

If the hashes don't match, it means your version is unsupported and the fix won't work.

Made an account because I really appreciate this but I can't seem to get it to launch at all. I verified that the hashes match your previous post and I uninstalled all my mods, but no matter what a black box appears in the middle of the screen. Once I click it I'm greeted by the "Program has stopped responding" dialogue.

Again, I really appreciate this. Just want to potentially help others with this issue.

Welp, I guess the game hates not being run from Steam. Doing so fixed the problem. Thank you so much!

Another update: I can reliably crash with the attached image by skipping the ending cutscene of Mission 19 (as Dante). Hope you can issue a fix!

Windows 10 is recognizing the file as a  virus and not allowing it to run at all.

"operation did not complete successfully because the file contain a virus or potentially unwanted software"

Windows Defender also freaked out when I downloaded a music mod. It took me deleting the file and a redownload and Defender had no issues whatsoever.

Looks like multiple cutscenes throughout the game are affected, as skipping or even letting any finish gives me a new error message.

I gotta stop posting here before I solve my own issues! Turns out I unwittingly kept DirectX11 mode on the config.ini when the DX12 mode is more stable for me.

Probably a false positive, though you've to decide yourself whether to 'trust' the file or not. PCGW in general does not guarantee  the safety of files, and due to the numbers of false positives occurring in gaming related files -- particularly those created using e.g. Cheat Engine -- we usually don't remove uploaded files either due to "virus detections".

See the "Virus detected in PCGamingWiki file" section for a bit of context.

yes, exactly the same problem. game runs fine in 21:9. ranged attacks are no problem, but if you use a melee attack the game just crashes. i am currently on the newest steam based version of the game.

 

.exe details mentioned above are correct, my .exe has all the required checksums and its still not working.

      This patch removes the black bars during cutscenes for ultrawide users.
      Simply locate the 'witcher3.exe' file and hit apply. Next time you're in a cutscene the black bars should be gone.  
      Just let me know if the patch isn't working for you, I'll try to fix it.

      These solutions for 2560x1080, 3440x1440, 32:9, 5:4 and 16:10 resolutions will remove black bars from the game. Pre-rendered cutscenes, subtitles and some of the UI elements will be stretched.
      Unpack the applicable archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw if required.
      If using the trainer, make sure the game is launched before it. After applying the fixes with the hotkeys, change the display mode to fullscreen or borderless and apply. If using the patcher with the Steam version, unpack the game executable with Steamless first, rename it back, then patch. Tested the latest EGS and Steam versions mainly at 2560x1080, 3440x1440 and 3840x1080.

      Made a patcher for Ashen that corrects FOV for 21:9 and 32:9 users. 
      Extract the archive, run the patcher and locate Ashen-Win64-Shipping.exe then click 'Start' on the patcher.

      Turned the fix from Code Vein's PCGW's hex editing ultrawide guide into a patcher. I don't take credit for the actual hex-editing work. All I did was correct the FOV and implement the hex edits from the ultrawide guide into a patcher so it's easier to apply for those who don't want to hex edit things themselves. 
      In-short this patch removes the black pillars from cutscenes and corrects the field of view for 21x9 and 32x9.
      Extract the archive, run the patcher and locate CodeVein-Win64-Shipping.exe then click 'Start' on the patcher.
