Description
This small mod allows people with non 16:9 displays enjoy the game without distracting images on letterbox bars.


There are two versions of this mod available:
One that makes borders black and another that removes them completely:





Be aware, that cutscenes were made with 16:9 aspect ratio in mind, so removing bars can reveal things that were not supposed to be seen, sometimes making background in pre-rendered cutscenes bright:

Installation
  • Download this archive[drive.google.com];

  • Rename "ui.par" to "ui_backup.par"
  • Run XdeltaUI.exe;
  • In "Patch" field select your desired version of this mod:
    • BlackBars.xdelta - will remove patterns from letterbox bars, making them plain black;
    • NoBars.xdelta - will remove bars completely, potentially revealing things that you weren't supposed to see.
  • In "Source File" field select "ui_backup.par" file;
  • Press "..." near "Output File", pick a "\Yakuza Kiwami 2\data" folder and write "ui.par" as a filename;
  • Press "Patch" button.

Enjoy!

Sorry, not sure where should I write this
But can we expect similar mods for Yakuza Remastered Collection?

Is there a version of this for 1.4 with black borders? I see 1.4 below by Zypnyx, but that removes borders entirely.

Thank you creators for the mods. These really make the Yakuza series playable. horrible distracting border art and black bars really ruined the atmosphere for me. Big companies should really get their act together.. every time with big titles i have to use Flawless widescreen, hex edit or mods like these to fix the games >:( Small game companies usually make things right without extra work... Anyway thank you again
