  1. Updated the tool. Let me know how it works for that version.
  2. Version 1.1


    Compared to changing FOV with the UE4 unlocker, this tool will not produce as much decrease at cutscenes and the FOV will not be reset after each level. Unpack the archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Launch the game Launch the tool and press the keys as instructed All trainers based on CE components may trigger some anti-virus software. Tested the latest Microsoft Store / Game pass version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080. You can buy me a coffee here.

    RDR2 Centered HUD

    Awesome findings! I tested this at 21:9 and documented in the article as well 🙂
  4. Version 1.0


    The game features FMVs and rendered cutscenes that get pillarboxed at 21:9 and wider resolutions. This patcher removes the black bars from the rendered cutscenes and has no effect on the FMVs as there is no way to hack a pre-recorded video to add more content. Simply unpack the archive and patch the main game exe. Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and briefly at 5760x1080 in both DX modes. You can buy me a coffee or support me on patreon.

    Thanks! Added the solution to the article. 🙂
  6. Hi Rose. Thanks for all your work. I was wondering if you had any idea to  modify NBA 2k playgrounds 2 for 21:9

    I tried all the hex edits but I could not get it to work. It is Unreal Engine 4 

    All the best

      Hi. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the game to look into it.

  7. Downloading anything from the internet involves trust. There are 0day exploits and undisclosed vulnerabilities that can be used, so even if a file is not flagged by any AV, the risk is still there. If unsure or reasonably paranoid, you could send the file unpacked to Microsoft (as I have with some of my trainers) to have them whitelist it or reclassify it, making it about your trust for them - it usually takes about a day.

  9. Thanks for the updated script. It's better than the stretched version and the HUD issues of placeholder elements waiting to slide onto the 16:9 area are barely noticeable when racing.
  10. It is possible but the background appears to be limited in width, so that just results in stretching. I don't think it's optimal.
  11. Version 1.0


    Unpack the files to the game folder so that they are next to Observation.exe to remove the cinematic letterboxing (horizontal black bars). Tested the latest version at 2560x1080 and 1680x1050 on the first and one of the last levels. Let me know in the comments if you still come across letterboxing and attach your save files so I can take a look.
  12. Version 1.0


    By default, Mafia II Definitive Edition not only adds black bars to all cutscenes at 21:9 and wider but also simultaneously vertically "crops" pre-recorded FMVs. The two included patchers serve as two options (don't use both!): Remove all black bars - FMVs stay cropped (vert- from 16:9). Remove black bars only from rendered cutscenes and fix FMV scaling. Tested the latest Steam version primarily at 2560x1080, briefly at 3440x1440 and 5760x1080. You can buy me a coffee here or support me on patreon.
  13. Hi. I addressed it in a recent comment here. As much as I would like to, the wiki rules do not allow me to provide step-by-step instructions for unpacking the exe.
  14. You can. Just launch the game first, then the Xbox version of the tool. No need to install anything but it has to be launched every time you play.
  15. One of my suggestions to incorporate both ideas was to look at the way music album chronology is done on Wikipedia, as seen here: It's not as much information at a glance as there used to be but it's also not as bad as having to always go to the series page to navigate the articles. The code for the template is here. I would not say I see it as the perfect solution or one I would personally enjoy the most but it's an option to consider.
