Thanks Fubar2nine,
Like I guessed it work the same in 8km/16km environment, WScreen ok, but no sun halo. Perhaps someone could find a solution...I really tried everything that I could thought until now without luck.

Well now, I'd say that it was a fault on the ENV Skycolor files, may be able to adjust the Sky_atl1.tga, I'm no expert but what ever the difference is between the 8 & 16k Envskycolor files may hold the key.

Thank you so much for working on this issue - I stopped playing SHIII (which is hard esp since GWX 3.0 is now out) because of this widescreen issue.

I have a Samsung 245BW 24" (16:10 @1900x1200, 60h).

I will test it out and get back to you.

Thanks again!

No, we have no differences between 8km/16km. The mod works and have the same problems for both. And this is not a colour problem. To have WScreen work I modified the cameras.dat forcing the game to put all the cameras a bit to the right, all worked well but not the sunhalo. This is why the sun halo is still present at the far left of the screen.:hmm:

That image is not wide though, he was probably showing that fixed scaling works ok on a wide monitor, just a guess.
@ Rubini, I could see the sun disc but didnt notice the halo to the left (bright clouds) till I took a closer look!! certainly is wierd!
ARE YOU READING THIS PRIVATEER!! Do you have any ideas?

Thanks Rubini for this widescreen fix. This should be stickied don't you all think so?

My only gripe is that this fix is not compatible with OLC GUI mod. The periscope view is somehow wrong. Could anyone make this fix to be compatible with OLC GUI mod please?

Best regards.

I had same problem with NYGM + Hitman's new optics (by Rubini's explanation and checking out what was actually changed from stock, I modified cameras.dat by myself to see the effect). I only fiddled with a few hours trying to figure out the values relation in scope with but failed It wasn't simply offsetting some value so far as I checked out.

jimmie and castout,

open rubini's camera.dat AND yours camera.dat (with s3d). replace ALL the rubini's values at
1. dummy cam uzo
2. dummy cam obs periscope
3. dummy cam periscope
4. dummy cam binocular

with the values that you get from yours camera.dat

it is working( i use olc gui 127) so take care..

bye

That's how I started in the first place. When I checked Rubini's cameras.dat for uzo, obs, attack peri except bino the value for "right" was not changed.. And if my memory serves, value for the bino didn't seemed to be a value calculated relative relation but just add 1 (which did look working but I had no way to measure if it was optimal aspect ratio).

The thing is, I tried to modify over Hitman's optics which tweaks FOV, and the magnification is also different, and this moves the center of stock scope view horizontally. It's not as simple as I first hoped to.
