Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

The game targets 16:9 displays with a fixed horizontal FOV of 80 degrees. It is entirely playable despite low FOV, due to the game's setting, although a Cheat Engine script allows to modify it.

Ultra/Super-Wide (21:9/32:9) Specific Solution & Issues

Due to vert- scaling, playing the game may be difficult. Use Cheat Engine script to increase the FOV. Recommended values:
- 21:9 - 95.5
- 32:9 - 118.4

Pre-rendered cutscenes are stretched from their original 16:9 aspect ratio (with the exception of the ones used in splash screen).

Eyefinity / Surround Specific Solution & Issues

Increasing FOV with Cheat Engine is required. Recommended values:
- 3x 16:9 (48:9) - 136.6
- 3x 16:10 (48:10) - 132.3
- 3x 4:3 (12:3) - 124.1

Just like with ultra-widescreen, pre-rendered cutscenes will be stretched from 16:9 aspect ratio. Navigating the station's menus can also be problematic with buttons being spread out over multiple screens.
