Creating a Split Screen profile for Dragon Rising, need help with aspect ratios

Post by PoundlandBacon on Tue 05 Dec 2017, 11:34

Hi, I'm hoping you guys might be able to help.

I've made a profile for Dragon Rising for Nucleus Co-op - https://github.com/lucasassislar/nucleuscoop  basically allows split screen play on some games which weren't designed to support it.
Dragon Rising largely works great, but I can't for the life of me work out the aspect ratio settings, so the gfx look distorted:

I copied the modded exe to support extended resolutions, and  I also installed EGO Engine Upgrade 2017.
At the moment i'm using (per instance - half the screen) resolution width="1920" height="540" aspect="2.4"
As you can see this is still not right, but the only higher AR is 4.8 which is too high. Is there a way to calculate supported ratios, or a ratio in between 2.4 and 4.8 that might work?

Thanks in advance!

Templar might be the guy to know this one. He's been playing with VR stuff so aspect ratios might be something he'd know more about.

Another image, all running 60 fps on a gtx1080. As it's 4 16:9 instances there's no AR issues,just used the default:

Hi PoundlandBacon

In order to use custom aspect ratios you first need to add the desired ratios into the restrictions files so that the game will accept it.

Data_Win\System\Hardware_Settings_Restrictions.xml

Code:
            <!-- Aspect Ratio -->     
            <restrict_set name="aspect" default="2.35">
                <allowed value="1.333333" />
                <allowed value="1.777777" />
                <allowed value="1.6666" />
                <allowed value="1.8" />
                <allowed value="1.9" />
                <allowed value="2.0" />
                <allowed value="2.1" />
                <allowed value="2.2" />
                <allowed value="2.35" />
                <allowed value="2.4" />
                <allowed value="2.5" />
                <allowed value="2.6" />
                <allowed value="0.5" />
                <allowed value="0.8" />
                <allowed value="0.9" />
                <allowed value="1.0" />
                <allowed value="4.8" />
            </restrict_set>

Here is a basic set with alot of options you can copy/paste over the default set
