We usually had this on widescreen monitors:

Some people also had it stretch to fit, like this:

And now, we have this:

[note that the stars have since been moved to their proper position]

Thanks to the genius jackfuste at wide screen gaming forum and Narukota for all the help!



Here are all the available patched EXEs for filling the screen plus the work-in-progress Z2F file for correct aspect ratio:
DOWNLOAD

Download and unzip the right EXE version for your installation, and then replace the original ZT.EXE with the new one. Also put the zWidescreen.z2f into your ZT2 folder.


If you have others you want patched, send them over and I'll try (eg. UC NoCD version)

Fantastic Hendrix, how do we install this? I've been having this issue with my new laptop myself.

I'm still working on it, I've modified the z2f that comes with it, I just have to ask for permission to reupload it. ;)

Ah, now THIS will make my dad happy. He says it'll ruin my screen if I don't figure out the black bars on the sides, and with the amount of time I spend playing ZT2... xD

Flat screens aren't vulnerable to that anymore, that's why you rarely use screensavers anymore. ;)

I have a feeling I should tell my dad that...
But he's a little very over-reactive when it comes to computers. >_<
But this is good news, as it's a lot easier to concentrate without the big bars, and I can move around with my mouse easier, then, too. c:

I tried using the fix but my ZT2.exe won't respond after replacing the original with the fixed one, any help with this?

Do you have all expansions installed? It's based on the cracked Extinct Animals exe, so obviously you need EA.

I have Ultimate Collection on this computer, so yes.

I'm not exactly sure if that's the same. Probably not, I could check it if you upload your exe. ;)

Yeah, there are different expansion files and zt.exe files I think for the individual expansions to UC.

Try this one, I changed the value like in the EA exe - in theory it should work:

It's really just one damn byte xD
