Hi All,

FIFA 16 is released within the next few days and we can 100% expect no support for 21:9 widescreens.

So here are the fixes that work on the demo and will work with the main game upon release.

I understand that i am reiterating information from bdjace's post on FIFA15, but knowing some people, they wont understand that the FIFA15 fix will also work on FIFA 16. So credit to bdjace and jackfuste for the incredible work.

1. Create a back-up of the FIFA16.exe or FIFA16_demo.exe.

2. Download HxD Hex Editor in your chosen language from here http://mh-nexus.de/en/downloads.php?product=HxD

3. Install and open HxD and using the Ctrl+O shortcut, navigate to the FIFA16.exe or FIFA16_demo.exe executable and open it.

4. Once open, use Ctrl+R shortcut to open the "Replace" dialogue

5. In the SEARCH field, enter "39 8E E3 3F".

5a (3440x1440). If you're using 3440x1440 21:9, enter "8E E3 18 40" into the REPLACE WITH field.

5b (2560x1080). If you're using 2560x1080 21:9, enter "26 B4 17 40" into the REPLACE WITH field.

6. Change the "DATATYPE" drop-box to HEX-VALUES and click REPLACE ALL.

7. Finally, save your changes with Ctrl+S and exit HxD.

This fix will not affect any online gameplay or get classed as a "bannable tweak", this is a simple change to the EXE. The menu's and in-game HUD do appear slightly stretched, but the actual visuals of the game appear as normal.

For other resolutions, please consult the original post or leave a comment and I can insert additional steps for that resolution.

Doesn't work for the final release of FIFA 16, tested now but still get black bars. Worked fine on the Demo. Very disappointing,

Hopefully someone here can find a different fix for it, I've just started pre-loading it from Origin :(

Unless they fix it on their own; It's EA, it's EA Sports, and it's an issue that's been there since 21:9 and since Fifa 15 first came, which was 2494854 years ago if my calculations are correct. I wouldn't rate the chances that high of them fixing this. Although kudos for starting a process!

What do you say we start a process of our own? We gather more fans from the other Fifa forums to this topic=more complaints. We keep fiddling with own fixes. I'm a web developer but know virtually nothing about Hex-codes, but I'll do my best. Also, we get hold of people that might know how to fix it, and offer them incentive in form of payment. I'm willing to pay up if you guys are. 10£/$/€ will amount to quite much if there are several of us. What do you say? Fifa 16 without black bars needs to happen.

Me too, I'll pay to get this fixed. It's crazy that they took it out in the first place.

I meant asking someone who knows how to fix it to do a home fix, like the hex-edit thing by Jackfuste-something. I'll contact him and ask him if it's doable for money. We better start asking around :)

This is fucking horrible. It is even possible they screw this intencionally? I have found out that when you modify demo.exe there are 5 changed strings when in full version exe there are only 3 changes. So I think we are talking about those two missing lines that they are changes from demo


please share your thoughts on this topic https://fifaforums.easports.com/en/discussion/87351/fifa-16-problem-aspect-ratio-21-9-ultrawide?new=1

by the way i didn't write this i found it on the EA forum i just thought i would share and maybe someone in here can get a permanent fix ...by the way i have followed these steps below and they worked .....

Using 'Cheat Engine', solved the 21:9 problem. Thank you for R.F.A
However, this method is a little uncomfortable.

1. Download the Cheat Engine. http://www.cheatengine.org/downloads.php
2. Run the game with ultra-widescreen resolutions.
3. Run the Cheat Engine
4. Click the 'Open Process' and select 'fifa16.exe'
5. 'Open' Click
6. 'Hex' checks
7. Enter '3FE38E39' in 'Value' and 'First Scan' click
8. Double Click 'Adress 14339D5B0'
9. Change Value '4018E38E' (3440X1440) or '4017b426' (2560 * 1080)
10. It will change the aspect ratio of the game

This method must be done every time you run the game.
