Question about 21:9 aspect ratio
#1
Whats going on guys, I'm very very new here so please no crazy harsh criticism lol. alright basically I just got done building a new computer. cpu is a i7-6700k with a 980ti sc gpu to just give you a idea on what I'm running. I plan on buying a 34in curve ultra wide monitor.. but I was wondering how would the games look if I decide to utilize the whole screen? for example how would kingdom hearts look? would it be stretch out crazy or would it be some what playable. if you guys can kinda help with my question I would appreciate it thanks ! !

I don't support 21:9 patches because this happens to the HUD:

Render fixes are also screwy.

16:9 is the max you should go for PS2 games.

Damn, so what would you think my best bet would be? I wanted a ultra wide monitor but I still wanted to play some classic games. The monitor was the pg348q

Actually, sorry. I confused 21:9 with a way wider aspect ratio.

21:9 MIGHT be feasible, if you can tolerate some stretched HUD. It really depends on the game, tho.

Kingdom Hearts 2, for example, has a font width hack, and I can change it so that it looks fine in 21:9.

But honestly, if I were you, I'd probably just get a huge 16:9 monitor, like 40" or 50" instead of the pg348q, since it essentially functions as a big screen TV.

I can try making a 21:9 KH2 code, but don't expect perfect 21:9 for all PS2 games, of course.

Also, you'd play KH2: Final Mix over the vanilla versions, yes?

Good. The Final Mix version is the best version. Smile

As for the English patch, try the English patch by CrazyCatz00.

There's also an "HDfication" project in the works, which essentially makes the HUD better for 16:9 (and thus, 21:9), so you should keep an eye on it. Not sure when it will be done tho.

You should also be aware of the 60 FPS hacks:

And finally, you can contact me on this forum. I also monitor the widescreen patch thread (link in my sig)

As for the English patch, I've been using rev 8 by Sora6645. There's some rev 5 floating around the Internet, but you should ignore it since it's outdated. You can find it here in the description (please be aware that you need an unpatched vanilla .iso for this):

However, there's apparently another English patch by CrazyCatz00. I'm not sure which verison is better, but here's a link for now:
