So for grading purposes, regarding the ultra-wide problem, does it make it unplayable? How severe is it when you play?


It ruins the atmosphere enough to me that I have not played the game since I discovered the problem and I am waiting for a fix. However I have seen no indication that bioware has acknowledged the issue or has any fix in the works.

I have those two comparison videos for download just see for yourself how bad it is. Look at all the foliage missing in the eyefinity video vs the standard one, and the pop in/out of the background.

So a "damaging flaw" in TH Cranky?

I thought TH flaws were blemishes for grading purposes.

Flaws are flaws to me.

What grade would potentially makes TH unplayable be?

Unless the TH flaw itself is a blemish. In that case, the flaw is overlooked.

So, the question is, should the TH issues be considered a blemish, or a consequential flaw (or worse)? If the former, this game keeps certification. If the latter, this game gets a B+.

Anyone found a way to move the in game UI/ HUD around so that the character/Party icons, taskbar and minimap can be placed in the central monitor? I haven't had any luck finding a mod that can do that. Running it at 5760 x 1080.

2560x1600 successfully tested.

Some of the textures in this game are badly washed out. I installed the JB3 hi-res texture pack which made a considerable difference.

I decided to take a stab at centering the HUD in this game.

I've only managed to shift everything to the left.

HUD Right-side location: "DAOrigins.exe"+831650+50
HUD Bottom-side location: "DAOrigins.exe"+831650+54

Not only will these reposition the HUD while in-game, but it will also shrink the main menu.

It seems the left-side is hard-coded somewhere as zero and I have not been able to find it yet. Once that is found, the main menu and HUD will be centered.

If anyone has this game and wants to try and help out, I'd appreciate it. :)
