Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

Aspect ratios besides 4:3/5:4 (native) causes the aim to be off. Severity depends on the aspect ratio.
The shotgun shell ammo obscures the gun viewmodel.
Resolution must be set to 640x480 for resolution hack to work. You will need a hex editor for this.

Open /exe/hod3pc.exe
[Offset 6C3B0] 80 02 = Width & [Offset 6C3BA] E0 01 = Height
For 1080p I would replace
80 02 00 00 C7 86 04 01 00 00 E0 01
with
80 07 00 00 C7 86 04 01 00 00 38 04
and all instances of AB AA AA 3F with 39 8E E3 3F
For other resolutions and aspect ratios, see here: http://www.wsgf.org/article/common-hex-values

Tested resolutions:
