PCSX2 - Widescreen Game Patches
(11-25-2012, 07:48 AM)Gvaz Wrote: Is there a widescreen patch for SO:TTEOT or is it not needed?

Not needed, it has the option to chose between 4:3 or 16:9 which works in new games or can be changed in the ingame menu as well.

Hello everyone, i'm unable to find the patch for Tekken 5 (NTSC-U) (SLUS-21059)..

It has been listed there===> List of widescreen patches

But there's no patch when i clicked the link. It would be great if someone can provide it. Thanks in advance Smile
The patch has been removed, since the author found it to be crap.
Here's another one from "pavachan" - don't have (and can't find) the post-link.
Dunno if it works - I don't have the game.

So i have just pasted that file in cheats folder, started the game and it doesn't seem to work and the inbuilt widescreen setting also doesnt work.
Set "CDVD" to "No disc", then choose "Boot CDVD (full)" from "System".
Once the PS2-menu shows, choose "System Configuration" > "Screen Size" and set it to 16:9 (or Full if you have a 16:10 monitor).
Set "CDVD" back to "Iso", close PCSX2 and restart it.

If there is an option in the game-menu to use widescreen, then use that instead of the patch (remove the patch from the cheat-folder, and disable cheats).

Nope that doesn't work too. Actually the in-game widescreen setting doesn't work. I have tested it and the PCSX2TEAM member also confirmed that in the comment of that below video And the widescreen patch works well for the PAL version

Look at this video of TEKKEN 5 by PCSX2TEAM====> Tekken 5 1080p running on PCSX2 0.9.9 SVN - wide screen patched
I found the link to the post:

Welcome to Devina's ultimate widescreen archive, containing the most updated and recent widescreen patches! :)

The goal of these patches are to have the PS2 library have true widescreen support (non-stretched), whether they be in the form of field-of-view, FMV hacks, font hacks or HUD hacks. All of these patches are open source - they can be improved by anyone at anytime. Just post in this thread and I will update the archive. Patches are done on a game-by-game basis. The archive currently contains around 2000 patches.

By submitting patches you agree for the information contained in them to become part of the public-domain. This implies that it is free for use by anyone for any purpose without restriction under copyright law. If you never agreed to these terms please contact me (Devina) so they can be removed.

  • Most widescreen patches only affect the 3D environments of games, not the 2D HUD elements, which are stretched. It sucks, but it's a trade-off. So circles become wide ovals, and squares become wide rectangles, etc. Sometimes, we CAN unstretch the HUD.

  • This archive is primarily focused on NTSC-U. If you want the most success with the patches, stick to NTSC-U and ONLY play other regions for exclusives (such as the NTSC-J Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, or the superior PAL version of Ico, or Gregory Horror Show which was only released in Europe).

  • The archive is focused into turning 4:3 into 16:9. Other aspect ratios aren't supported, so sorry to any Eyefinity fans or 16:10 users.

  • Some games have built in 16:9, but it's skewed (usually zoomed in too far). Many patches in the archive correct this.

  • The NTSC-U & NTSC-J versions of Devil May Cry 2, all versions of Star Wars: Battlefront 2, NTSC-U and PAL versions of Summoner 2, and NTSC-U and PAL versions of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 have the same CRC. The file in the cheats_ws folder is for NTSC-U.

  • If you are playing Shadow the Hedgehog NTSC-U or PAL, reboot the game twice to fix broken fonts.

  • The Readme in the archive contains useful information.

  • Many of the patches in this archive also contain other useful features, making this archive a must for all PS2 gamers. For example, the Fatal Frame patches contain codes which disable extremely blurry cutscenes (due to poor upscaling). Other codes also fix visual glitches, and also contain "noise/grain filter" removal codes. Each patch is individually tailored to the best of our ability to give you the best experience.


Another useful tutorial:


  • Provide the region for the game(s), or NTSC-U will be assumed.
  • Don't request games that don't load and boot in PCSX2.
  • Don't request games that already support in-game 16:9 (unless the in-game 16:9 is skewed).
  • Don't request games which have a big focus on 2D elements, such as pre-rendered backgrounds. Point-and-click adventure games like Syberia and Glass Rose are bad choices for widescreen hacks and are best played in 4:3. The only exception to this rule is if 3D does play a significant part (for example, all the battles in Shadow Hearts 1 are in 3D).
  • This archive is for 16:9 displays. Do not request 16:10 patches, or any other aspect ratios.

GameRankings has a list of the best PS2 games by reviewers, from best to worse. It's a good reference tool to know which PS2 games are the most worthy of widescreen.

If there isn't a widescreen patch for a game of your region but there's a patch for that game of another region available, you can request for a game to be ported over. The cool thing about widescreen patches is that when you find the widescreen address for a game, it's relatively easy to find the corresponding address for other regions since they share similar data. It also applies to special versions (e.g. porting MGS2: Sons of Liberty to MGS2: Substance would be easy, or KH to KH: Final Mix), and sometimes extends to game sequels that use similar engines. Here's a tutorial.

Please note I usually update the archive once every few months with the newest and updated patches.
The archive will always be more updated than the latest PCSX2 builds.
