MM1 Widescreen Patch

Postby Toty » Tue Aug 28, 2018 11:43 am

About a month ago, I finished making a Widescreen Patch for Midtown Madness 1 and released it on the Discord server. Now that the MM2x website is back up, I'm going to release it here since that will hopefully make it available to more people.

This patch corrects cameras and dashboards present in certain vehicles in Midtown Madness 1 when using a widescreen resulution. The default game displays widescreen resolutions by trimming the top and bottom of the screen, a behaviour known as vert-. This is not ideal for widescreen because it reduces the viewable area to the player. This patch fixes that and the game now displays widescreen by showing more to the sides, a behaviour known as hor+. Dashboards were also modified to look properly on these resolutions.

The patch corrects cameras and dashboards for all of the default cars, the Red Rocket included in MM1 Rv3, all of the cars from the MM2 to MM1 Car Pack, and all of the traffic cars either played by typing a special Driver Name or by the mod included in MM1 Rv3. The patch won't have any effect on any other add-on car.

There are also two versions included: one designed for 16:9 resolutions (e.g. 1280x720, 1366x768, 1600x900, 1920x1080), and one designed for 16:10 resolutions (e.g. 1280x800, 1440x900, 1680x1050).

You can see the effect of the patch in the following pictures:

I'll upload the patch shortly after writing this and it will hopefully be available on MM2x in a couple of days.
