Rayman Arena PC Widescreen Patch

Post by IIITA »

Here I post the widescreen patch along with all cutscene videos of Rayman Arena PC.
Shadorino and Ribshark helped me much to make exe files and cutscenes suitable for 16:9 screen.
If anyone love this patch, please donate tings to them.

NOTE: mega links are not for long-time save, it is very kind of you guys to backup files in another web storage;
3 parts rar'ed

Code: Select all

Part1: https://mega.nz/#!8QgHBLqB!p-mE-AMg66P9uNg35NTQsGGgmOJ-8B1_oyepyxTTjqw
Part2: https://mega.nz/#!MAR1VITR!GWgt1QdIubVt2vZ2Qb2E6zK2EsWWtHuVg7K3ledM35E
Part3: https://mega.nz/#!5QYFWL5Y!doXm_f2BNoadCnFNEsj3I2JHIlwsJddlhViissMwpm4
Screen shots: (all are of 16:9 aspect)

Your keen eyes will notice that HUDs are slightly distorted horizontally in the shot below, which I could not solve in the patch.
If you know how to fix this HUD distortion, I will appreciate the skill. Please post that fix.

I assume this will work for Rayman M players too, correct?

Rayman M and Arena have different .exe files, so there'll have to be a separate mod for Rayman M (which I believe exists in another forum somewhere).

No, Rayman Arena has the feature of LAN play while M does not.
That is the reason why I made this Arena widescreen patch for people wanting to play the game via internet, i.e. online play.

EDIT:
I found your question on Rayman M for LAN play;
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1057&start=40#p427921
So, Ubisoft's answer is Rayman Arena, not online patch to Rayman M but another soft that is Rayman Arena having LAN play capability.

Oh, Ribshark has devised his new widescreen patching method;

Great ! Using BetterRayman3.dll and patched exe along with database, installation is very easy without making any labour to edit all cutscene videos fit for widescreen.
I hope he will have time to do it on Rayman Arena PC as well as Rayman M PC........

The widescreen patched exe, R_Arena.exe attempts to change the screen resolution that requires Administrator's right in Windows 7 or after.
So you must run R_Arena.exe with Administrator's right.
Did you do that ?

Oh, you have to buy the game from Ubi Soft.
These files are just offering the modification of widescreen play. You must apply these files AFTER THE GAME INTALLATION, i.e. overwrite to the original ones.

EDIT:
To unarchive these three parts files;
- First you have to buy "WinRAR" software to unarchive rar'ed files and install it.
-Second, save my three parts rar'ed files into the same folder in your PC.
-Third, point the first file and click right mouse button to get submenu, i.e. context menu.
-Forth, in the context menu, you now get "Unarchive" menu asking that where to unarchive the file.
-Fifth, selecting a directory you like, you will get all MOD files unarchived into it.
-Sixith, then copy MOD files to the original game installed folder to get Widescreen play.
NOTE: Please note that MOD files must be overwritten to the original files, so you will be careful to overwrite right files to right folder. Watch out the right directory when you copy files.

Oh ! Adosolution already posted Arena CDs;
https://raymanpc.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 43#p656054

If you overwrite my files to those that you installed with Adosolution's CDs, you will get full widecreen play.

As it was regularly getting the access from guys in the forum, this thread has got over 3000 accesses in three years.
Thanks for your access.
I am still groping in the dark how HUDs distortion would be solved.
If you gus have any idea, I will grealy appreciate it. There might be custom textures package, but whether anything else was changed in the binary... I don't know.
