Creating widescreen fmv patches
#1
I was just wondering how people figure out what patches are required to make and fmv go widescreen. I looked at the persona pnach files and the hack seems to be quite similar between the 2, but it's very different with kingdom hearts. The game I'm looking to patch is GrimGrimoire.

It's impossible to make them widescreen without stretching the image as there's no actual 3D scene to render.

Well what about games with black bars on fmvs? i mean the cutscenes don't look stretched in persona 4 while using the widescreen hack. (I assume thats because it's actually stretched but is offset by the black bars) I just want to know how to do this.

You should learn what letterboxing is first before you assume you can make a video adapt to a different aspect ratio
Most (if not all) games run the video at a fixed resolution and that video is already letterboxed to fit it.

Yes they do, look at the opening of persona 4 without widescreen hack, notice the letterbox, now turn on the widescreen hack, letterbox is gone.

But it's part of the widescreen hack, and i already admitted it probably was stretching, i just want to know how to do it.

that would mean stretch the video to put the black borders out of the screen array...
I'm not into patches, but is suggest you directly ask nemesis2000

This is what Im thinking too, is there any way of stretching it both vertically and horizontally so the image is still true widescreen but without the black borders.
