Wheelman is an over-the-top open-world driving and shooting game developed by Vin Diesel's development studio, Tigon Studios and published by both Ubisoft and Midway. Diesel himself lends his likeness and voice to the game, which focuses strongly on feeling like an action movie. Gameplay mostly consists of insane driving through Barcelona with no focus at all on realism and instead a concentration of feeling like an action movie filled with stunts and insane chases. If you like crazy fun gameplay more than polish and graphics, Wheelman might be worth a chance purchase.

Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

Native support for many widescreen resolutions through game menu.
Screen change is Vert- out of the box. Widescreen FOV requires a hack made by Racer_S, which you can download below.

Load the hack before starting the game, then press "*" in-game to enable the hack.
Adjust your FOV using the "-" and "+" keys until you reach the FOV that is right for you.
You can disable the hack at any time by pressing "/".

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

Eyefinity / Surround Specific Solution & Issues


The FOV setting on the hack is additional FOV added to the base FOV. For the shots below I used 33 on the hack, but you should experiment until you find the right FOV for you.
