[GTA|NFS|MP|OTHER] Widescreen Fixes Pack

TB99,

I originally tweaked FOV for 16:10

user posted imageuser posted imageuser posted imageuser posted imageuser posted image

And it's really looks not so good with 16:9. How do you like this adaptation?

Well, I just put all the Files of your fix in the game's main Directory, that's everything I have to do, right?

Yeah. Check how the asi loader works: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1399262.../stuff/TEST.asi

This plugin should give you a message box.

Nope, no message box...

dinput8.dll located at the same folder where the exe does? Try it with this asi loader: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1399262..._asi_loader.zip

@Alt

the new adaptation for 16:9 stretches the screen in the depth very much as well. So it becomes very difficult to see the end of the level, especially with nitro boost. I know that you can't change the camera positions for the cars and so you use the FOV instead.

But i see you use a camera mod as well?

I ask, because, in comparison to your adaptation, the rear bumper plus only a small part of the truck bed from this car is usually visible with the default camera setting:

I currently change the camera positions for every single car in the scripts. I noticed that the camera positions for many cars were set really badly in FO2, especially for the monitors with aspect ratio 16:9. I will try to release this mod very soon.

Yup, it's in the same folder as the exe... But both asi loaders won't work.

Well, that's weird. dinput8 should work 100%, i'm pretty sure the game is using it on any settings. Can you try to download some other version of the game?

Awesome ones, ThirteenAG. Could you please take a look at the Legacy of Kain series of games and see if you can make fixes for them?

TB99,

Originally FOV of FO2 in WS have the same horizontal view but cut vertical. FOV edit expanded vertical view to 4:3 value. Also it's expands horizontal view because it's the way FOV works.

user posted imageuser posted image

Both screenshots made with correct aspect ratios & original game (without WS Fix & modded cameras)

In my opinion 4:3 looks a lot better & tweaked car cameras is just a halfway.

P.S. As for cameras in previous comparison, I forgot to delete FO2CamsFinal.

Yes, 4:3 looks better as FO2 was optimized for 4:3 monitors (e.g. 1024x768).

 

FO2CamsFinal is unusable for widescreen monitors as it was optimized for 5:4 monitors (1280x1024).

 

I have changed all FOV values in the scripts to 100 now. The cameras above the hood were set to 95. That's why i never used these cams before. The speed was just too slow. The position of the cars will become a mix of both worlds (4:3 and 16:9). In both of your sceenshots you can see how difficult it is to see what is happening direcly in front of your car. This will also change. FO2CamsFinal showed similar camera positions but FO2CamsFinal croped to much from the sky. So i will try to join these three advantages:

 

-Cars are placed at the bottom of the screen (mix between 4:3 and 16:9)

-Street or Opponents in front of your car will become visible.

-Sky isn't cropped too much

 

Additionaly, it is possible to change the FOV value for all cams with WS Fix.

I don't know what the argument is about, wouldn't it be the best to alter FOV so it's actual HOR+? So vertical field of view remains fixed throughout the aspect ratios and horizontal field of view is being altered instead?

But second screen shows exactly how it meant to be played & it's normal for me. And that's what really needs edit suicidal.gif

5:4 Field of View

16:9 Field of View

 

Notice how vertical field of view is fixed (no bottom/upper parts of screen are cropped) and instead it's expanding horizontaly. That's how games do it nowadays.

@SilentPL

Wow, do you know the technical background of this solution?

 

@Alt

Yes, the Blaster XL is one of the best examples for camera fails / Bugs'n'Bear in FO2 and FOUC.

Because of the proportions of the Blaster XL it wasn't easy to fix the two cams behind this car. But i think/hope that this setup is ok now.

I would discourage to avail of predefined constants. You would rather find a function which calculates the correct FOV and AR each time the screen resolution changes. It requires complex math though, but this formula is easy to adapt on our specific instance.

 

I wish to donate you the main part of the widescreen scales computations (multi-monitors shouldn't be supported but they are planned) available here of the WSHPS (WideScreen Hor Plus Support) upcoming modification. However, everything has been tested only on 4:3 and 16:10 resolutions because I still didn't implement neither the option to switch to your desired AR nor the ability to choose 16:9 resolutions, therefore I'm unable to test the mod's behaviour fully at the moment. You could give me a hand. icon14.gif

 

fWideScreenWidthScaleDown and fWideScreenHeightScaleDown keep the narrowed scales.

I don't think calculating AR is necessary, since i can put current resolution instead of predefined constants 4:3(in flatout case). FOV, from the other hand, needs some universal way to be calculated, i agree with that. I'll try this formula if i'll be able to find FOV function in Flatout.

It may not worth mentioning, but the new asi loader available: https://github.com/ThirteenAG/Ultimate_ASI_Loader/releases
I will replace the old one in all my previous fixes some time later, but you can do it now. It supports renaming to dinput8.dll, dsound.dll, and ddraw.dll(GTA2 widescreen fix for example).

Also recently i made no intro fix for Splinter Cell Blacklist DX11 exe, which removes intro movies and presses the key automatically on the "Press any key"-screen.

Nope, i'm not really a fan of this genre.

 

Btw, i added some new cool features to the next version of ultimate asi loader. Now it supports renaming to:

- dsound.dll

- dinput.dll

- ddraw.dll

- d3d8.dll

- d3d9.dll

- d3d11.dll

 

So i included wndmode.dll to it, and now any game can be started in windowed mode, simply with wndmode.ini created at the same folder with asi loader.

For example, gta3, running in borderless windowed mode, asi loader is dinput8.dll:

x1kd.th.jpg

Or, Flatout 2, running in normal windowed mode, with FPS counter activated(one of wndmode.dll features), asi loader is d3d9.dll:

Borderless window in GTA III? :lol:

 

Anyway. I was looking through some of the earlier posts and I was wondering what font mod are you using to have an outline on everything?

I tried installing the widescreen fix for NFS Carbon on Windows 8 x64 and the game crashes to desktop upon launch. I removed the files and the game STILL crashes unless I run the game in compatibility mode for Windows 98. I had to reinstall the game and the 1.4 patch to make it run properly without compatibility mode. Is there any fix for this to make this game run on 1920x1080 resolution or is it just going to keep breaking my game installations? :angry:

Well, if it crashes even when you deleted the fix, you should remove save games, not reinstall the entire game.

Have you tried to install exe, provided in All in One archive at dropbox?

Also try to use this ASI Loader instead of old one(dsound.dll) in Carbon fix archive.

How exactly do you store the 1080p res? MTA won't load it properly from the set file. It always resets it and if I choose it in MTA, SA resets it.

Better late...

https://github.com/ThirteenAG/Ultimate_ASI_Loader/releases

Updated asi loader, i decided to make a re-release, because previous github repo was created a bit wrong.

Installation as usual, rename it to supported dll, place near game executable. Put plugins to the same folder or scripts folder.

For example, paste archive content to Mafia folder, create empty file named "wndmode.ini" and run "Game.exe". Messagebox from test plugin will appear, and game will be in windowed mode, which is very useful for developing any kind of plugins. After that, you can change some options inside wndmode.ini, like turn on fps counter or show border option.

Do you think that it's possible to inject ASIs in Mafia via the vorbis DLLs that come with the game?

Yes, Silent's loader actually might work here too, in theory.
