DESCRIPTION:

This is a modified "menu_1024_768.ini" wich fix the menu screens for ultrawide resolutions.
It has been tested with 3840x1080 (32:9) resolution but should work for 21:9 aspect ratio resolutions too.
This fix makes buttons like "START"/"BACK" visible again when playing on ultrawide resolutions.



!!!!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT NOTE !!!!!!!!!!!!
Be aware that this fix is made with vanilla version of the game.
There are other mods that come with a modified "menu_1024_768.ini" file.
If you want to use it with any mod that has a modified "menu_1024_768.ini", read the instructions described in
point 2)




1) HOW TO INSTALL:

First of all it is strongly recommended to make a backup of your original "menu_1024_768.ini" file, wich is located
in "..\Silent Hunter 4 Wolves of the Pacific\Data\Menu" folder, in case something go wrong or if you want revert to
the original file!

1a) via JSGME:

- unpack the content of the "Menu fix for ultrawide V1.rar" into "..\Silent Hunter 4 Wolves of the Pacific\MODS"
- start JSGME, select and enable "Menu fix for ultrawide V1"

1b) manual installation:

- unpack the content of "Menu fix for ultrawide V1.rar" to any location on your HDD or SSD
- copy "menu_1024_768.ini"
- go to "..\Silent Hunter 4 Wolves of the Pacific\Data\Menu" folder, paste "menu_1024_768.ini" there and overwrite
the original file.


2) MODIFYING "menu_1024_768.ini" from a mod that has a modified "menu_1024_768.ini".

- MAKE A BACKUP OF THE ORIGINAL FILE!
- to make editing very easy, i recommend to use any kind of programm like WinMerge (freeware), that is used to compare
multiple files and find differencies between this files. In that readme i will discribe the use of WinMerge.

- open WinMerge
- click "File" -> "Open..."
- open the original "menu_1024_768.ini" by clicking "Browse..." on "1st File or Folder"
- open "menu_1024_768.ini" from "Menu fix for ultrawide V1" on "2nd File or Folder"
- click "Compare"
now you see two windows, the original "menu_1024_768.ini" (that you will edit) on the LEFT and "menu_1024_768.ini" from "Menu fix for ultrawide V1" on the RIGHT
- now start clicking on "Next Difference" button. (it is located on the top left, below "Tools" (green arrow pointing down on red/yellow rectangle))
WinMerge will highlight all the lines that are not matching between the two files.
- when clicking on "Next Difference" focus on the right window and search for lines with a comment ";(VDraculaV ultrawide fix)"
- now everytime you see such a line, right click on that line and select "Copy to Left".
- repeat doing that for all ";(VDraculaV ultrawide fix)"-commented lines that you find.
- when finished, go to "File" -> "Save" and select "Save Left"
- That's it

KNOWN ISSUES:

- When exiting a mission there is no "NEXT" button on the results screen. I was not able yet to find that button in "menu_1024_768.ini".
You can press "ESC" there to proceed.
- Not all menus in Multiplayer screens are fixed yet as i don't get connected to Ubi.com and can't see next screens there to be able to fix them.

Hope this fix will help the ultrawide users out there

best regards
