Solving Ultrawide Problems for Oddworld Soulstorm on PC

Oddworld: Soulstorm is the latest entry in the longrunning Oddworld series that started back in 1997. The latest entry is developed and published by Oddworld Inhabitants, Inc. The game has been met with a positive response from both critics and gamers, with generally favorable reviews. It is currently out on PS4, PS5, and PC through the Epic Games Store. The PC version is decent, but not perfect, and there are some technical issues. If you want to fix any Oddworld Soulstorm Ultrawide issues, here is how you can do that. A Steam version hasn’t been announced yet, but we expect it to come out on the platform in a year or so.

Sadly, even in 2021, a lot of games don’t come with proper ultrawide support. Even though the monitors, and resolution is getting pretty common, most gamers have to manually configure their games to enable ultrawide resolutions.

Fixing the Oddworld Soulstorm Ultrawide Issues

Now, unlike other PC titles that have some form of Ultrawide support, even if it is barebones, Oddoworld Soulstrom doesn’t. This is very dissapoitning, and something that makes the process of manually adding support even harder.

However, thankfully, a Reddit user Rinine has created a patch that can help you play the game ultrawide. The patch isn’t perfect, and there are still some issues, but given the circumstances, it is your best bet.

For now, the patch supports the following resolutions.

Resolution Ratio
2560×1080 21:9
3440×1440 21:9
3840×1600 21:9
3840×1080 32:9
5120×1440 32:9
Supported Resolutions

Installing the Patch

Unlike hex edits, this is a fairly straightforward patch. Follow the steps below to install it.

  • Launch the game for some initial settings
  • Now, first, make sure that the game is running in Windowed Fullscreen, and the resolution is 1920×1080
  • Close the game
  • Head over to the following link to download the patch file
  • Extract the file using compression software like Winrar or 7zip
  • Copy the Assembly-CSharp.dll file and paste it into the following location
Oddworld Soulstorm\soulstorm_Data\Managed

Now, launch the game, and you will be good to go. The patch will automatically adjust to the resolution of your monitor. Here is a sample image provided by the patch creator.
