Imperfect Ultrawide User for Fallout76

Imperfect Ultrawide for Fallout 76
Imperfect Ultrawide for Fallout76

Resizes many user interface elements to be unstretched and better positioned for 21×9 ultrawide resolutions. For those wanting a fix for 32:9 or some other crazy resolution, you’ll want to look up JPEXS FFDEC, and get an extraction tool for betheda’s files. I recommend their own Archive2, however baka should also work. Movement of elements is done by finding the ‘matrix’ sub element inside the different ‘frames’. This used to be much easier to see before Bethesda started better general support for ultrawide, since all the elements would actually play out their animations. Now you have to actually go into games to see what your change did for some stuff because it’s just invisible on the previews. Otherwise it’ll just take a lot of guesswork on your part.

FO76 Version compatibility: 1.2.0.15

A Note Before Digging In:

This specific edit has been formatted for 3440×1440 specifically and will run great. I have not tested 2560×1080, but from having modded the files, I can tell you there will be some oddities, most of which will include elements that are on the right to likely appear slightly off screen. ((I haven’t heard of anything being off enough to make a difference, and no one has stated specifically that it does look weird, so I’m assuming it’s ok))

As a side, I have FINALLY figured out a ba2 setup that works! For those who are changing from loose files to the ba2 archive, you will need to delete the loose files first, as loose files overwrite the ba2 archive. Unfortunately, the ba2 version no longer works, and I cannot figure out why. Until I can figure it out, we are limited to using the baka tool once again. (Why, I have no idea. The baka file tool MAKES A BA2 FILE. THAT ONE WORKS. WHY?!)

INSTALLATION:
READ ALL THE DIRECTIONS! Power armor requires an ini file edit!

First thing’s first, the creation of Fallout76Custom.ini. Go to C:/Users/******/Documents/my games/Fallout 76
Create a new file named Fallout76Custom.ini and add in:

{{ You no longer need to edit TranslateZ (most likely)! My translate setting is for those using fDefaultFOV=80 under [Display]. If you set it to 90, you’ll probably want 270. If you haven’t changed it, you should probably use 260. In the case you haven’t edited that particular FOV setting, you may need to also set fUIPowerArmorGeometry_TranslateZ=1, however this shouldn’t be necessary unless your compass clips the bottom of the screen. }}

Go to Fallout76prefs.ini file and set it to READ-ONLY. I recommend accomplishing this step only after you’ve set all your in-game settings, as locking the Fallout76Prefs.ini file will lock out any control edits. (I don’t know why this is, as the controls are saved elsewhere…)

Baka Installation:
1. Get the Baka File loader mod here: Baka File Loader
2. Unzip the mod into the data folder. ((IF UPDATING FROM VERSION 10.5 OR OLDER, DELETE OLD FILES IN INTERFACE FOLDER))
3. Use Baka tool install instructions to create the new archive files.
3(a). Go to settings tab and checkmark ‘Copy Files after Packing’ (Only needs to be done once, simplifies install, return to Tool main page)
4. Refresh archive after file placement.
5. Hit create archive.
You’re done! Enjoy Fallout76 in ultrawide.

UNINSTALLATION:
(why would you do this?)
Remove ImpUlt.ba2 file and delete ImpUlt.ba2 from the sResourceStartUpArchiveList
Remove baka files.
If using another mod with Baka, delete interface folder and meshes folder in the /Data folder
