About This File

This RAR file contains a modified Mech3.exe, which fixes the lack of the HiRes Patch's support for wider aspect ratios and higher FOV (Hor+) for a perfect experience, since the HiRes Patch just adds support for higher resolutions but keeps the game's internal aspect ratio at 4:3, which obviously looks stretched and not correct. Game has to be updated to version 1.2 before replacing the exe.

Supported aspect ratios: 15:9, 16:9, 16:10, 25:16, 32:9, 48:9, 64:27


1. If your aspect ratio is 16:9 or 16:10, download the HiRes Patch from here and also the Widescreen Fix. If it's different from 16:9 and 16:10, just use the Widescreen Fix and force a resolution in dgVoodoo2 that has the same aspect ratio you chose.

2. Extract the HiRes Patch files from your chosen aspect ratio to the main game folder first and then extract the equivalent file of the Widescreen Fix, overwriting Mech3.exe from the Hi-Res Patch.

3. For 1440p or higher, a DirectX wrapper like dgVoodoo2 is needed. To force a higher resolution than what the HiRes Patch allows, choose a resolution in the game launcher that matches your aspect ratio (lowest as possible is better), and then choose 4K in dgVoodoo2's DirectX tab.

4. Launch the game from the HiRes Patch's launcher, choosing a resolution inside it.

Known issues:

- Neither Widescreen Fix or HiRes Patch fix the HUD size for aspect ratios other than 16:9 or 16:10, so they will be stretched. It will be fixed in a near future.

- No support for Pirate's Moon expansion yet.
