Widescreen in THPS4 and THUG

Post by homeboy » Tue Oct 09, 2012 5:09 am

hey there,

i'm a widescreen fan and have been trying to get proper widescreen resolutions at thps4 and thug pc, with less success than i hoped for.
already got 16:9 scripts for both games, setting custom resolutions is the only issue i have.

concerning thps4: i've managed to hex edit my desired resolution in the thps4 demo exe (changed the 640x480 res) and got that running.
when i find the same section in the full skate4.exe and edit it the same way nothing seems to change though.
has this something to do with the demo's copy protection or something, or has the full game been "locked" for that kind of edits?

as for thug: i came across some forum post in which a guy states hex editing custom resolutions will only be able if someones cracking the exe.
well this has been done meanwhile, so i assumed it would work just the way it works with the thug2.exe but i couldn't find any resolutions in the nocd-thug1 exe.

could anyone help me out with this?

The crack is just a bypass of the disk check. What they mean by cracked exe is having the exe decompressed and safe disk removed, this has not been done. The data is compressed and that's why you can't find the proper data you're looking for.

Agreed, My laptop's resolution is around 1280x768, and it actually centers the 4:3 screen when playing in 1024x768 which doesn't look that bad imao, I for THPS4-THAW, i use the default AA settings, but for earlier games (THPS2-3), it doesn't use it, It would be better with HD textures though
