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.
If you have the game on Steam, you will first need to adapt and follow the first steps of my DQB2 guide in order to apply the patcher. Such are the rules!
Support with a donation.
Unpack the included trainer with software like PeaZip (password is pcgw) and apply the fix after launching the game.
This will turn the gameplay and menu FOV from vert- (less vertical) to hor+ (more horizontal).
The few pre-rendered cutscenes and the tutorial sprites will remain vert-, while the loading screens and bonus artwork will be stretched.
Tested at 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

Marty Stratton, executive producer of Doom Eternal, has announced that Denuvo Anti-Cheat (not to be confused with Denuvo Anti-Tamper) will be removed from Doom Eternal in Update 1.1 which will be "rolled-out to players within a week". This follow the recent patch which implemented Denuvo Anti-Cheat in Doom Eternal faced backlash last Thursday.
The developers will consider "giving campaign-only players the ability to play without anti-cheat software installed":
The initial reason id Software implemented anti-cheat in the first place is clarified:
The main announcement can be seen here on the /r/Doom subreddit:
It remains remains to be seen whether id Software's decision to remove Denuvo Anti-Cheat again in Doom Eternal is permanent.
Doom Eternal's latest update now include Denuvo Anti-Cheat, not to be confused with Denuvo Anti-Tamper. Unlike Anti-Tamper, Anti-Cheat runs at the ring-0 kernel level of your PC.
The Anti-Cheat can be uninstalled, however it is reportedly required to run Doom Eternal, even in singleplayer mode.
One consequence of this new anti-cheat software is that it is now incompatible with Proton (Linux) and its ProtonDB rating has fallen from a previous Platinum award - to completely unplayable.
Irdeto, the company that maintains Denuvo, has been working on this software for quite some time and it appears that Doom Eternal is the first game to use this software. This announcement about the software was made back in March 20, 2019:
In this Doom Eternal announcement of May 14, 2020, they state:
Check out our Denuvo wiki article which has been updated with information about Denuvo Anti-Cheat.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age has received a patch today which removes Denuvo, the infamous DRM on this PC port and remaster.
The notes for Patch 18.104.22.168 only mention some minor content changes:
However the removal of Denuvo can be seen on this update on SteamDB:
This PC port joins our esteemed our growing list of games that have had Denuvo patched out.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is currently 50% off on Steam until April 30, 2020, which seems like rather convenient timing.
Game not starting
The game is now not starting since the update, and is being reported by many people on the Steam Discussions, It appears as if multiple Steam critical files and the configuration tool were removed in the latest update, which is probably non-intentional:
Update: @fayaine has collected the missing files - most critically steam_api64.dll and also the FFXII_TZA_GameSetting.exe config launcher.
Update: an update has been released to restore the missing files. The game will now start normally after installing the latest update through Steam.
