View Full Version : Stuck att 4:3 aspect ratio

03-29-2019, 01:16 PM
In fullscreen no matter what resolution I use the game runs in 4:3 aspect ratio. The aspect ratio option in the menu is disabled no matter the resolution I choose. If I run the game in 1920x1080 window mode it runs at 16:9, any other resolution it revert back to 4:3.
What I have read this was also a bug in the original release.

Gaming on a 3440x1440 monitor with a GTX1080. Right now the game is pretty much unplayable for me.

Sounds like they skipped widescreen support even on remastered version :(

With should handle 16:9 since it works in 1920x1080 window mode and thats 16:9.
And I watched Tetra Ninjas 2,5 hrs of 1440p gameplay last night. All thou that was on PS4, but it would suck if the console gets 16:9 and PC on higher resolutions is stuck on 4:3.
Besides why even have the 3440x1440 option in the resolutions menu if it's not gonna matter what you choose anyways.

I got Samsung CHG90 which is 49 inch which is wide screen monitor with dual HD resolution 3840x1080 and HDR, The game is stuck on black screen and my monitor is going crazy that is so hard to force close the process. So for me game is unplayable.

Going to have to agree here, Ultrawide too, 3440x1440, would love to play the game, but not with huge black bars on both sides, surely this should have been implemented, I can select the res, but it makes no difference ? :confused:

Ive managed to run my game with HDR ON. I had to turn off G-Sync mode.

But the resolution and aspect ratio is a big mess look at this (print screen doesnt work i had to do a snap):

1920x1080 - Game is on my whole screen but you dont want to play Full HD on Dual HD monitor


2560x1080 - 70% percent is covered. Fun fact if you incerease aspect ratio it will be smaller :D


3840x1080 - My native resolution which is maybe 50% of my display. Aspect ratio is grayed out you cant change anytyhing

Now that this problem reached more people a solution as been found. The good poeple over at WSGF.org acually found a solotion that worked for me.

See this post: http://www.wsgf.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=33074&sid=6b7687db01d438d772ea3b186d177b94&start=10

The trick is to fool the game to think you using a 2560x1080 monitor to get full 21:9 3440x1440 to work. You have to use Flawless Widescreen to make it work and to download the plugins file from the post above.

The inside the Flawless Widescreen configuration change the Override display detection to manual and put in 2560x1080 on both width and height and same for hud.
Now I can play the gameplay sections in fullscreen. The hud is still 16:9/4:3 (centered) and the cutscenes is still pillarboxed. But atleast I can use the screen relastate to acually play the game.

Forgot to add that the second part to "override detection" was to get the aspect ratio enabled inside the game. I still have 3440x1440 in-game selected as my resolution. It only makes the aspect ratio enabled so I can choose 21:9.

Thanks uggleboet! So the game is playable on wide with the trick? I have 3440x1440 res and would love to buy the game so any feedback is welcomed.

Yes it playable and with the trick above it's even good. All thou I feel the controls a clunky both with keyboard and/or controller it's worth it. It's no Odessey, that was a joy to play. All thou you had to HEX-edit the exe for Odesssy and Origins to get it to truly work on 21:9 (even in cutscenes), this might be possible in the future if Ubisoft decides to enable the aspect ratio option for 3440x1440 or if WSGF poeple will find a fix for the cutscenes as well.
