Ultrawide Monitors FOV Fix
By Shaz
For anyone gaming on any sort of Utlrawide and suffering from the game being too zoomed in. I finally have a fix for you that does not involve downloading unsigned executables, making AV exceptions or turning off your Windows Defender.

All you need is the official Universal Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker and typing one command into the console to achieve greater FOV and make the game playable again.
What you need?
  • Verified working on STEAM version. NOTE: Getting mixed reports on Gamepass version working. If you don't mind leaving a comment if you can get this working on the Gamepass version.
  • You need to go and download Universal Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker from here[].

Injecting UUU into TheAscent's process
  • Load up the game like you usually do and start your story.

  • Alt-Tab out of the game

  • Launch the UUU by running UuuClient.exe

  • Next to the In Process to inject to: field. Hit the Select button

  • You should see the game in that list of processes:

  • Select TheAscent-Win64-Shipping.exe and click Inject DLL

  • You should see the UUU Window change with more options and the icon of the game should appear to the left of the panel showing that it is indeed injected:

  • Now you simply go back to the game, and press the ~ key on your keyboard to open the console.

  • Type fov 80 or whatever number you desire and hit ENTER.

  • Enjoy the game :)

Brillllllllliant thanks!
Any way to have it loaded automatically each time we launch the game?

Thank you very much for the guide!

Appreciate the guide! The fact that this is even necessary is insane. Neon Giant's response to the requests for native support have ensured I will never make the mistake of buying a game developed by them ever again.

2Kane, thanks for your comments. Obviously to each his own but the UUU too is far from bloatware. It's a tiny, open source tool built to help debug and develop for unreal engine games. We're simply using it to restore the console in the game.

wait the game is zoomed in on ultra wide?
guess i just reduce the resolution then, i have no problem with black lines left and right. better than installing yet another bloatware

wow thanks a ton, didn't know i needed that but this way it's far more playable :)

The UUU tool does not change anything physical on your drive. It simply hooks into the game's instance and adjusts parameters found in memory. Once you quit the game, all those changes are reverted so it only works during runtime.

Question does it change any line or add a line to the C:\Users\******\AppData\Local\TheAscent\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini and if so, which one might it be. That settings are not found within the config file does not mean it's not adjustable. Something changed.
