iw3mp impure file, can't play on ultrawide

Recommended Posts

Any way around this? I hex edited the exe so it would scale properly for ultrawide resolution but it just changes the file to .impure

 

I've tried flawless widescreen and widescreen fixer but neither of them work.

Having the same issue, 21:9 ratio worked fine on 17.7 and when I updated to 17.9 I had to redo the widescreen fix (as described here: http://www.wsgf.org/dr/call-duty-4-modern-warfare).

Now I can't start the game with the patched .exe as it gets detected as impure.

 

Edit:

Am I correct with the assumption, that you check the file hash of the iw3mp.exe? If so, please add the file hash of the widescreen patched .exe, too. :)

But it is for single player only. Also I am not sure if we want support what is shown on the screenshots. Because you see too much from left and right side.

It works the same for multiplayer (I'd assume it's not documented as it is a hack after all).

I see where you are coming from, it indeed increases the field of view, however, there are a couple of factors which play in my favor I believe:

  • Infinity Ward have no problem with changing the fov (  source  )

    I'd like to once and for all give Infinity Ward's stance on this subject.
    We do not mind if a PC user has the FOV changer mod.
    We also do not ban anyone that is using the FOV mod.
    EDIT: Just had confirmation that Valve also does not issue bans for FOV changer.

  • A majority of the servers have a custom fov anyway
  • There is also a hex value in the iw3mp.exe you can change which adjusts the fov, so you could have a correct aspect ratio without altering the fov
