This is a copy of the my comment on the DX:MD page and it was suggested to seek support here as well. I would like to know is there is a way to get 32:9 (5120x1440) to work without black bars? I tried editing the executable with HxD and also tried search for the aspect ratio with cheatengine to adjust the known values but nothing seems to work.

Furthermore, why does the article show green for ultrawide, even though it doesn't work?

Considering WSGF list ultra-widescreen as supported (although with some glitches), it seems just nobody tested 32:9 (especially that a major releases of these monitors happened a year after the game was released) and all tests were done on 21:9, so that might be why it lists ultra-widescreen  as supported... cause it does, just not 32:9 aspect ratio.

I don't know if it's the same, but it seems like it is actually latterboxed to 21:9 on 32:9 - 

Which as a programmer I could actually imagine how it could have happened.

Sorting this would require writing some kind of hack, cause I doubt we can get Square Enix to invest some money to make another patch.

Shouldn't it then be indicated, like only partially supported?


Not until we globally change the definition of ultra-widescreen, as I explained to you earlier. I'm for it and I actually proposed that the wiki covers more aspect ratios a while back on Discord.

Yeah, it's a pity. You mentioned that you have an idea how that could have happened. Could you explain your reasoning?

I also doubt there will be another patch for this game.

I know, thanks again. I wanted to raise the same question here since it was suggested to take this discussion to the forum. So, currently 32:9 has to be specifically mentioned in order to draw any conclusions.

      The small patcher removes the side black bars from the game at 21:9 and wider aspect ratios.

      Unfortunately, it does not address the native issue of the Cultural Insight FMVs being cropped. As a workaround, those can be watched properly at any time from the menu by switching to a 16:9 resolution in the game, or on YouTube.

      Tested on the latest Epic Games Store version at 2560x1080 and 5760x1080.

      This Flawless Widescreen script will let you override width safe area that is bounded to 90%. It will relocate HUD in the center if you play ultrawide or multi monitors.
      It will also remove the black bars that the game engine forces in cinematics (rendered in 16/9 natively).
      Install first Flawless Widescreen.
      Download the script and unzip it in your Flawless Widescreen folder.
      Run it and click MassEffectAndromedaTM on the left frame.
      On the right frame, game fixes are available to en(dis)able.
      Use the sliders for the HUD to relocate in game.
      Alternatively, you can force HUD safe zone values by modifying the the profOpts_profile file that is located in the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect Andromeda\Save folder.
      Locate the GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight and GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth lines and modify them.
      Valide range is 0-1 (float value)
      Note that any modification in the game settings may erase your modifications in file.

      The tool allows to change the first-person FOV in real time and exceed the limit of 120. For convenience, it is also bundled with existing solutions, including FOV fixes and the cutscenes fix for ultrawide resolutions, so not all of the functions may be compatible with an already patched exe.
      Download the archive and unpack it with software like PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the hotkeys as instructed to enable or disable the fixes in real time. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Contains the interactions FOV fix and ultrawide fixes based on killer-m's work, as well as an FOV check fix from Wintermance.

      Tested the latest Ubisoft Connect version at 2560x1080, 2560x1440 and 5760x1080.

      The small patcher will unlock all resolutions in the game and remove the black bars displayed at 21:9 and other resolutions.
      Tested the latest GOG version at 2560x1080.

      The tools unlock resolutions in the game and remove black bars.

      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. Select any in-game resolution and apply it. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.

      For the GOG and other versions, download the patcher and make sure to follow both steps and patch both files covered by the tool.

      The game might reset to 1920x1080 and windowed at the start of each chapter, which is a known issue with the game itself. In that event, simply go to the options and set them back.
      Tested the latest Game Pass and GOG versions at 2560x1080.
