I have come up with some sort of fix for ppl which will like to get rid off black bars till Blizz fix this, myb for someone will not be the best solution but for ppl who would like then here you go =)

Sample from Predator x34:
https://goo.gl/Qz5W9A
https://goo.gl/kR1vWK
https://goo.gl/MhltB1
https://goo.gl/TXlfsk

1. If your desktop is not native 3440x1440 then make one in Nvidia control panel and make it active on desktop http://prnt.sc/b9axi1

2. then go to "Adjust Desktop Size and Position", check mark on Full-screen, Perform scaling on: GPU and check box on "Override..." Set resolution to 2560x1440 http://prnt.sc/b9axb2

3. Start the game, go to Options and then Video, change resolution to 2560x1440 and WUUALLA :D

If you want to get more perfect quality then increase "Render Scale" (oc if you have good horse power of gpu)

if some one does not find this helpful then other solution to make black bars a bit less then they are, make Customised resolution 3000x1440 and make it use in game and you will have less black bars on side

Is this stretched at all? Hard to tell from the pictures since they are taken externally with a camera.

Joined to see if a solution is found for 21:9 on Overwatch.

Unfortunately this so far. Is the best solution. It does stretch the image unfortunately. Only by a slight amount, it basically stretches the 16:9 aspect ratio to full screen. It is still 16:9. It's better than nothing right now and also works if your monitor like mine (Dell u3415w) support aspect ratio options so you can stretch 16:9 to 21:9.

^^ Yep, all it does is stretch 16:9 to fill 21:9

It's not what I would call a fix, but rather a band-aid for those that hate the pillarboxing to the sides of the image. The resulting picture will appear stretched and squished as the aspect ratio isn't correct. Circles will become ovals, other players will be shorter and fatter, etc. Since it's extending the horizontal field unnaturally as well, the x-axis mouse movement will feel off from a y-axis. Not ideal for a shooter at all. YMMV!

No, not bannable at all. This is just doing the same thing many displays and HDTVs have built in with various aspect ratio / fullscreen / zoom / fill modes, but on the video card side of things. Nothing nefarious.

You can get similar results by running the game in a standard 16:9 resolution, and using your monitor's OSD to stretch the image to fill the screen if it has support for that sort of thing. Poke around and see.


Now if you were to hex edit the .exe or use a hack for proper 21:9 support, that would probably be bannable. Stretching the picture is totally legit (and not desirable).

With all due respect for your efforts. This is such a clickbaity misleading thread. Might as well have called it "here is how to stretch your image for 21:9 monitors".
