Yoku's Island Express ultrawide, superwide, multi-monitor fix 2.0


8 Screenshots

About This File

The tool removes black bars from the game at ultrawide and wider resolutions.

  1. Unpack the archive with software like 7zip or PeaZip using the password pcgw
  2. Launch the game, followed by the tool.
  3. Press the hotkey as shown to enable the fix.
  4. In the game,
  • Set the Video Resolution to Desktop.
  • Alternatively, if already selected, switch between 1080p and Desktop or press Alt+Enter twice.

All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

Although the changes are small enough to be part of a convenient patcher, Origin DRM, the common nature of Microsoft Store apps, and unpatched Steam DRM would not allow binary patching in this specific case.

Tested the latest Origin version at 2560x1080, briefly at 3440x1440, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

Unfortunately pinball moments are Vert- and since they are core of gemplay and require fast reaction as soon as possible, getting delayed visual information compare to 16:9 mostly cripall the experience. Exploration and map are correctly Hor+. Is there an option to keep pinball moments pillarboxed to keep gameplay intacted? At the moment i have to switch resolution from desktop to 1080p to get lost image back in that moments. As you can image it is not optimal for fluid experience :(

I play another hour and, this not working well. Pinball moments are like 3/4 of game, switching not working, since ultrawide is vert-, it's fully playable only at 16:9.

Could you share a save file and tell me where to go to reproduce this?

Like 75% of game from beginning is vert-. Exploration is fine, but exactly at moment when you enter pinball area, game going to be vert-. 

Exploration before entering flipper area, hor+:

And when i try start flipper area, vert-, lost visual information about gameplay. Its core of a game so its kind of unplayable in that state. :

 

Also is there is a way to do it as one thing hex editor some permanent change, have to going to start some program before playing, and make some alt+tab extra stuff make it really anti-couch game. If there was a way to just make one permanent change, make it so much "playing away from keyboard with controller", friendly? Sorry for my English 😞

Video shows it best. With fix, pinball section strat zooming in, out of the sudden. But without it, camera just shift position.

Updated the trainer with a solution that should make everything hor+. I've been on it for many hours since your report, so I truly hope it helps!

I briefly check it, and situation from video is now fully hor+, now game seems to be playable at ultrawide, big thanks for not abandoning that fix. I guess there is no way to eliminate extra program and make permanent change in game? Playing like that with constant going back to keyboard for make fix every time in want play from a couch is pain in the ass. Especially compared to other game i play ultrawide where i only make one hex change i forget about it.

      The tool corrects the reduced field of view at the cutscenes at 21:9 and wider resolutions, and allows to bypass the game's max resolution checks, making it support resolutions like 5120x1440.
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the FOV key to correct it in real time (undoing will require a cutscene restart) Press the force resolution key, then select and apply any resolution if the game does not support yours. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest Game Pass version at 2560x1080, briefly at 5120x1440, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
      Kudos to PhantomGamers for a hint that helped analyze the game variables.

      The tool corrects the reduced field of view and removes the black bars affecting 21:9 and wider resolutions, particularly prominent at 32:9 and wider.

      For Microsoft Store:
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the key as instructed to toggle the fix on and off in real time. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      For Steam and any other stores the game may appear on, simply download the related patcher and target the game executable.
      Tested the latest Game Pass version at 2560x1080 and 5760x1080. Steam version tested by a WSGF user at 3440x1440.

      The small patcher removes the black bars appearing at the cutscenes and dialogue at 21:9 and wider resolutions. It also corrects the field of view reduction at these resolutions.
      Unpack the archive and follow the instructions of the tool.

      Tested the latest Epic Games Store version mainly at 2560x1080 and 3840x1080.

      The small patcher removes all black bars affecting 21:9 and wider resolutions. This includes the entrance scenes, FMVs, loading screens and more.
      For the Steam version, unpack the game executable with Steamless and rename it to replace the original. Download and unpack the file from here and use it to patch the executable for ultrawide support. Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and 3840x1080.

      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.
      The remaining functionality is removing black bars from the cutscenes at 32:9 and wider resolutions.
      Simply unpack the archive and use the small patcher to target the ZA4_dx12 and/or ZA4_vulkan executable in the game folder depending on your preferred graphics API. Be mindful of the large file size of the executables which will be backed up and take up space if left untouched. Tested the latest EGS Vulkan and DX12 game versions at 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.
