Ever wish you could play The Order 1886 without the letterboxing? Well seems like you can now, that is if you own a hacked PS4.
You don't need to hack anything, you can get the same full-screen effect by playing on a monitor that's 21:9... https://external-preview.re...
or just change the zoom setting on your tv
hows that better haha if i switch from a .. i dunno 60 inch tv to a monitor thats not even half the size, thats an even worse end result ha.
Never said it was "better" than a 60" TV. It's showing that you don't need to hack anything to be able to play the game in full screen mode. People keep forgetting that the black bars aren't a part of the image resolution, and it's no different than a movie having the same black bars - the moment you watch it on a screen that's formatted with the same aspect ratio as the film, those black bars aren't there. Same goes for this game.
"Don't use a free hack to play full screen. Just buy a new TV, stupid."
Or, if you're fortunate enough to have a tv that let's you adjust the aspect ratio to your desire, you never have this problem with games, movies, or television programs.
People still remember and play this game eh? With RAD gone this IP maybe dead forever.
Sony owns the IP
Sony owns the Twisted Metal IP as well... Come on, those games can't be that expensive to make.
People always crap on this game but I thought it had a engaging story and great acting. Played all the way through with my brother and it was so cinematic we didn’t care who had the controller. Also some of the coolest, if not the coolest, werewolves I’ve seen in a game. Crazy how much flack it got for only being roughly 6 hours when most people don’t beat games that are longer than 10 hours these days. Super underrated and a shame it’s mostly forgotten.
Getting flack for being 6 hours was only part of the complaints. The AI was absolute garbage. Your team mates did nothing to help. The werewolves just charged right at you, then turned around, ran away, then just charged at you again. It was loaded with quicktime events, and there was only 2 bosses, which you fought mid-game, and again at the end as the end boss, but it was the same exact fight. Everyone acknowledges it had an interesting world, story, and fantastic graphics. But those things alone don't make a good game.
I remember this game it felt like this was suppose to be their big moment and it didn't work out and they kind of just fell off to the side.
If they would just overhaul the gameplay loop and make it a more open world similar to Arkam Knight, this series could be amazing. Excellent cast of characters
It doesn't need to be open world FFS !!
This IP has potential. It's done right with more content maybe an open world with deep RPG elements to diversify playing styles
it should make a return TBH. Yeah it was short as hell and ended when it got good, but there is so much potential there. Give us a fully fleshed out story, expanded gameplay that isn't as linear.
The Order 1887 The Americas Fighting Vampires and such, sh!t put Bigfoot in it, don't know how it would work thou
Surprised Sony don’t port this to pc. Maybe as well grab a bit of extra cash for a semi dead IP
If you make something wider than 16 x 9 16 x 9 you lose the sides of the image. You are getting less picture.
@The__Sage By your logic is something is taller than 16x9 such as 4x3 you'd be loosing the top and bottom? There are different frame sizes for different type of media and stories and it all depends on the creative vibe people want to have as their project. PC games can adjust this also. Cinema and Tv do this all the time, why can't games?
No. You lose the sides. With letterboxing they zoom into the center of a 16 x 9 or 2:33 to 1 image to fill the top and bottom of a 4x3 screen. You lose much of the original image. People that say I hate the black bars do not understand what is going on. Watch a 4x3 image on a 16x9 TV and you'll see that the sides are blank. There just isn't an image there.
You are correct about letterboxing, but 1886 was actually running natively at this aspect ratio/resolution. A game that did have letterboxing and was artificially cropped was The Evil Within/ Psycho Break. Gamers were not happy at all and they eventually released an update removing this - showing more of the level on screen. This isn't possible with retail copy of 1886 as it is made from ground up to be a finished media with that frame size.
Got ya. Artificially making a wider aspect ratio by laying bars over the existing image is not right. I would be upset about that too.
If it's possible using a hacked PS4, why was the option to remove the letterboxing not implemented in the retail version then? The graphics in this game are absolutely insane, some of the most gorgeous ever seen in any video game like, ever, truly a sight to behold, so I accepted the letterboxing as being what I thought was a necessary trade-off, but... it wasn't then? I want a sequel by the way, don't sleep on that IP like you usually do, Sony!
This game could use a PC rerelease, I always wanted a sequel.
