    Unpack the archive with software like 7zip, then patch the main game exe with the tool. This will remove the letterboxing (black bars) from the game, resulting in more vertical FOV than ever before. There will be some vertical stretching of the menu and subtitles. Support with a donation.

    I signed up for an account just to say "Thanks!!" for patching and adding support to Heavy Rain for Ultrawide screens. I'm running a 3840x1600 monitor and your 3440x1440 patch worked great!

    I'm not surprised. The people who cared enough for the series to pre-order probably wouldn't be bothered enough by a storefront to drop the game.

    MobyGames

    I disagree that Wikipedia is more useful, since I already wrote in the first post that many games or game developers don't have a Wikipedia article, but Moby Games does. Try finding any information about Brilliant Digital Entertainment and their games like Cyberswine and all you get is what is on Moby Games (probably one of the reason Telltale gets credit for innovation in adventure game genre and online episodic content while BDE did exactly the same things already back in 1997, people completely forgot about BDE). Not only does Moby Games have covers that most people here use when making articles, but they also have system requirements listed which I use when these obscure games don't even have them in readme. In the end it doesn't matter now, since they don't want to cooperate.

    Well, that can be the reason, thank you. So ironic, cause i downloaded the pirated version especially to check if the game has 21:9 support... 😂

    The issue appears to be specific to pirated versions of the game, which is not unexpected. Here's what you get otherwise:

    TL;DR The Youngblood Tweaker (YBT) allows additional tweaking of Wolfenstein: Youngblood. This includes options to scale player and enemy damage, adjusting the amount of head bobbing, disabling various HUD elements and more. Quick start guide: Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Wolfenstein Youngblood\". Start the YoungbloodTweakerGUI.exe set the bindings and other settings as desired Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam Features The Youngblood Tweaker (YBT) is a small mod that offers additional options for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. The goal is to fix issues that prevent people from enjoying the game, as well as to provide quality of life improvements. The mod is still in its infancy with very limited functionality. It may be extended and improved based on user feedback in the future. Its features include: Adjusting player and enemy damage Disabling various HUD elements, such as enemy healthbars, objective markers, minimap or the crosshair Adjusting the amount of head bobbing when moving or turning Forcing the FOV outside the range that can be set ingame Disabling rendering of the fog Instructions Supported Versions This mod is designed for the latest, fully patched versions of the game and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables. Steam (international version) Steam (international demo version) Install The mod does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed. Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Wolfenstein Youngblood\". Start the YoungbloodTweakerGUI.exe set the bindings and other settings as desired Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam Note that even though the GUI is for configuration only and does not have to be running for the mod to work, it can be used together with the 'Reload Config' binding to adjust options of the fly. Update Perform a regular installation and just overwrite any existing files Note that an update retains all configured options unless they have actually been changed or removed in the new version. Uninstall Remove or rename the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game. Known Issues There are currently no known issues. Additional Information Antivirus Software Since this mod consists of an executable DLL file that uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could be classified as malicious by antivirus software. In that case, it might be necessary to add an exception rule to the scanner. If you lack the trust in random people on the internet -- and I would not blame you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file. GUI Requirements The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 to work; which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required version either through a recommended Windows update (Windows 7 and later) or at Microsoft here. Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors To increase the compatibility with other mods or injectors that are using a wrapper DLL, this fix offers two methods for remote loading of additional files. Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process. File method: The mod will load another dinput8.dll automatically if it has the name dinput8_Remote.dll. Just rename the DLL you want to load accordingly. Using this method will lead to an error if the renamed DLL is not itself a dinput8.dll. Folder method: The mod will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput8_Remote sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the mod. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files. Input Bindings The GUI allows the binding of an action to an arbitrary combination of keys and buttons on the keyboard, the mouse or an XInput compatible controller. The system purposefully does not restrict conflicts, so multiple actions can be bound to the same key. Key Names: In case of the keyboard there might be a discrepancy between the key that was pressed and the one that is displayed. This is because the names are automatically translated based on the keyboard layout by using a Windows function. However, the mod always uses the physical keys as they were used during the creation of the binding, independent of the name that is displayed. Modifiers: Modifier bindings can be created by just using the corresponding key combinations. If you bind one action to Space and another another to LCTRL + Space and a third one to LALT + LCTRL + Space, only one of them will be triggered when Space is down, depending on the state of LCTRL and LALT. The system is not restricted to the usual modifier keys ALT, CTRL or SHIFT. Any key or button pressed before another acts as a modifier for the next one. Note that the order of the keys or buttons is only relevant during the binding process to distinguish bindings with the same modifiers. In the above example, Space could be held down and the other actions triggered by pressing LCTRL or LALT afterwards. Contact And Support If you like this mod and want to support the development or show your appreciation with a donation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other mods that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions.

    Proposal: VR Template - Add VR Driver VorpX

    Looks great so far! I've made a few tiny changes to improve readability. The glossary page can be used to add all sorts of information you feel is relevant, so feel free to add whatever you think is missing. When the next header ("==Two equal characters creates a main header==", "===Three creates a subheader===") is added to the page it will automatically get a table of content added to the top of the page as well.

    While Microsoft’s Flight Simulator series has been dormant for many years, the franchise is finally making it's long-awaited return. In a fashion similar to Microsoft’s handling of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, an Insider Program was established for Flight Simulator. Members of the Insider Program will be eligible to apply early next month for the title’s upcoming first preview build. The general public will be eligible to apply in late August. There is currently no information regarding the actual launch date or window of the preview build. Are you hyped to play the MIcrosoft Flight Simulator preview build?

    Hot take: EGS is a ploy funded by the console manufacturers (at least a certain Japanese one who donated 6 games) in an attempt to kill the PC platform, now that it's at an upswing, and for the first time matching console revenue. What better way to divide the userbase, piss of paying customers to justify piracy, and giving developers second thoughts about PC when they can just make games only for consoles?

    What's newsworthy about this? There are games on Steam built on Unreal Engine, protected by Easy Anti Cheat. There is DualShock support in games released for Windows. Valve were involved in the development of Vive, so it's natural that it relies on their component. Oculus devices do not require SteamVR, and no devices require the Steam client itself.

    Time limit between edits

    I think it might be a good idea to make some kind of time limit for making edits. Just look at this mess here in history: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Area_51_(2005) 9 edits in 7 minutes and it seems nothing was changed in the end. Surprising this was not misused by bots or something. It is annoying to check the changes when people go on a edit spree like this with very short edits. Maybe after the third edit in a short time span to block for 5 minutes, like when login in.

    Time limit between edits

    Click on "X changes" on your watchlist to see a combined diff from all the latest changes made. In this case the user basically didn't use the Preview option properly, and was new to the wiki, and experimented to see what worked until finally giving up. There actually are edit limits configured already, and the time difference between each tiny edit (approx. one minute for each) shows that they most likely hit those as well.

    MobyGames

    In the area under the game cover art there are links to Wikipedia, SteamDB, Wine... and other stuff. I recommend to add MobyGames there too, since Wikipedia is a general online encyclopedia and MobyGame is basically an online encyclopedia for video games and people often already add the links to it in the general info section. Many old obscure and less known games don't have a Wikipedia page, but I have yet to find an old game without a MobyGames page.

    In my opinion the news section should be more focused on what this Wiki is like fixing games, compatibility issues and that kind of stuff. For example in the past few weeks new versions of nGlide, dgVoodoo and DosBox has been released, I think stuff like that deserves some attention, since these and other tools are very important for many games and you wont see mainstream media cover this stuff. Another example is Microsoft shutting down their games servers that were used on Windows 7 which is now causing serious issues for W7 users like some random games not starting and rundll.exe stressing their CPU. Here is a discussion about it on GOG. I think stuff like that are perfect for website like this to cover. https://www.gog.com/forum/general/old_games_not_launching_and_eating_100_of_the_cpu_on_windows_7/page1 These are some recent examples that I can think of.

    Typical corporate hypocrisy. And yet they want to still wage war against Valve and Steam. Greedy sods.

    MobyGames

    MobyGames have declined my proposal of mutual linking - not citing any reasons. I don't really see much value in linking to them, they don't really provide any useful information for PC gamers - Wikipedia has much more useful information. I would prefer to dedicate resources to more compatible websites, e.g. I was looking at ProtonDB.

    OpenAL 2.1.0.0 extracted from a Creative driver installer. This is an official update and is newer than the version on Creative's site. Games that include OpenAL32.dll will not use the updated file unless you delete or replace the game's own version to make it see the new one instead.

    CD audio tracks

    1) This Wiki lists a lot of technical aspects of games like DRM, graphics and sound API, physics middleware, etc... so listing that the game uses CD audio tracks for music and/or sound effects would make sense. 2) Some older games can have issues playing CD tracks on modern Windows, so you need to use a custom winmm.dll, then rip them to OGG format and then put everything in the game installation folder (some old games are re-realeased like this on digital platforms, for example Extreme G-2). This info would be useful on pages of games with that problem.
