thirteenag's GTA2 widescreen fix

Recommended Posts

Motka

So I tried installing the widescreen fix https://thirteenag.github.io/wfp#gta2 and for some reason it makes the launcher not run at all. It ran before I installed it. Any help to get this working would be appreciated.

Edit: get the latest version, it works great now

hifi is also working on a widescreen patch that will give a 1080P viewing area. It hasn't been released yet, still some things to fix.

That widescreen hack has other issues aswell, cutting off the heads and text and breaking the arrow offsets. Best not to use it.

Thanks for telling me the issues. It'd probably be best not to use it and wait for hifi's patch.

All of that was already fixed in latest version.

Sorry, I didn't realize you updated it, I remember the missing head problem being tagged with no fix but looks like you figured it out. I'll have to try it again. Nice work!

I just tested it. Working nicely in singleplayer and it also adds a quick save feature (F5 by default). It doesn't let you save during a mission but it will start you on foot in the place that you saved, so no more needing to always go to the church or start at the church.

 

+ and - on the numeric keypad allow you to zoom the camera in and out.

 

You can change the settings by editing scripts\GTA2.WidescreenFix.ini

 

I set a resolution in there lower than my desktop so I can play in a window without anything being cut off. The framerate was much lower in network mode for me than singleplayer, especially fullscreen but it works fast in a window.

 

Quick save crashes the game in multiplayer or if you use the skip frontend option from gta2manager (no big deal, just don't push F5).

 

Arrows pointing to other players are in the wrong positions in multiplayer. All players need the widescreen fix to play multiplayer or the game will go out of sync. Show instruments debug hud element must be offscreen since it isn't visible.

Does the widescreen patch work with a glide wrapper?

For me it doesn't seem to work with Glide wrapper. Running v9.6 with Glide wrapper, I get "Videomode 16x16x16 is not available".
