How to add 21:9 / 32:9 support to Ishin

How to add 21:9 / 32:9 support to Ishin
Unlike the rest of the series so far Ishin does not have any native support for 21:9 / 32:9.

Luckily there is a way to fix it:

Get the 3 files in pak folder found here:

copy paste them into \Steam\steamapps\common\LikeADragonIshin\LikeaDragonIshin\Content\Paks

For 21:9:
using HxD replace all instances of 3B 8E E3 3F with 8E E3 18 40 in exe located at \Steam\steamapps\common\LikeADragonIshin\LikeaDragonIshin\Binaries\Win64

For 32:9:
using HxD replace all instances of 3B 8E E3 3F with 39 8E 63 40 in exe located at \Steam\steamapps\common\LikeADragonIshin\LikeaDragonIshin\Binaries\Win64

Credit to Steam forum users fokehS and press1forhelp who worked really fast to discover the fix.

Note 1: As it requires editing the .exe there is a chance you will have to apply the fix again if and when the game gets patched by the devs.

Note 2: The fix only applies to game play, cutscenes remain at original aspect ratio.

I've been working on a fix that doesn't require hex editing or pak mods. It should allow any aspect ratio and correct FOV scaling for >16:9 resolution. It also lets you uncap the 30fps cutscenes.

Thanks, I figured it out, works perfect! Remains only to remove the lock at 30 fps in mini games)))

Hello, I did as the guide said, but after applying the changes, the game won't start. Is there anything else you need to do?

Thank you very much) And what are the hex values for 16:10? :lunar2019crylaughingpig:

@VINT Download the 3 files in the Google Drive folder and put them into the directory as the guide says. That'll remove the patterns and you'll be able to see any graphics (like names and minigame stuff) that were hidden by the bars.

To render gameplay to the full screen (cutscenes will still be locked to 16:9) you need to use the hex edit. Then just adjust the aspect ratio in game to make it look normal again.

Does anyone know how to disable letterbox? These patterned bars annoy me( :gaper:
