There was another thread in the 21:9 section but it wasn't getting visibility. 21:9 resolutions are supported but the menus are fucked and the HUD cuts off the screen.
Any news on a fix?

The current hex values floating around on the Steam Forums aren't ideal.

Quote:
You can edit your .exe with Notepad++ and use the plugin HEX-Editor, then change the values "39 8E E3 3F" to "8E E3 18 40" (for 3440x1440).
The menus will be off center. That's not a big problem though.
The big problem is that in game, some of the UI will disappear at the top and bottom.
Other then that, it works as any other resolution.

Also hoping for a fix.

The simple hex edit that works well enough for EDF 4.1 does not work here, as the canvas for the the UI becomes greatly enlarged, so most elements are off screen.

The game is unplayable like this, as menu navigation, which is essential for character setup, is impossible.

Will donate for a fix. Will donate the game to any modder well known to WSGF if needed.

Please make the fix applicable to UW and triple wide users!

I want to share with @everyone an issue that has beset the WSGF over the last week or so. Google has decided that the files we host (exe files, patchers, etc.) are malware. Thus, they have flagged the entire WSGF as hosting and/or linking malware, which inhibits site access and search rankings.

Both the WSGF and our older media server (WSGF Media dot com) have been flagged. We have found a solution for our hosted files, via our friends at PC Gaming Wiki. However, we still have an issue with the forums linking to the old WSGF Media server.

There is no feasible way to go through the forums and edit the possible thousands of posts that reference the WSGF Media server. And there is absolutely no guarantee that Google won't ping some future post attachment and flag the entire site again.

The forums are much quieter today then they used to be, with just 1 or 2 active posts per day on average, on top of this we continue to have issues with bots or humans creating accounts to post spam. Additionally, the forums have hampered our ability to enable HTTPS and update the site to be more modern and mobile friendly.

The internet itself has also shifted, with sites like Reddit and services like Discord, YouTube and Twitch being where most discussion happens. Given all of the above we are exploring the idea of "archiving" the forums into their own domain so that everything could be read, but no new posts or accounts could be created. We would then direct all new discussion to a Reddit community and/or our Discord server, which we hope will make discussing and working on fixes more practical.

We are really at a crossroads where the forums have gone from being a minor or moderate inhibitor to growth of the WSGF, to now a major roadblock (thanks to Google). We need a road forward, and wanted to reach out to the community to socialize the issue and our ideas, and to get your feedback.

I'd love to hear your feedback in our Discord Server - https://discord.gg/FcVYWgh
