Widescreen resolution[edit]

Modify the executable to change the aspect ratio
  1. Open Pcdogs.exe with a hex editor (e.g. HxD).
  2. Go to hex offset (Ctrl+G) 52F58 for the French/German/Italian/Spanish/Dutch version of the game, or 50F60 for the English one.
  3. The next 4 bytes after the cursor should be 00 10 00 00. If not, find the correct offset manually:
    1. Search (Ctrl+F) for the string Emulated.
    2. In the hex view, look for the next FF byte before the string.
    3. Find the first 00 10 00 00 byte sequence after that.
    4. Click the first 00.
  4. In the data inspector, change the Int32 value from 4096 to:
    1. 3067 for 16:9
    2. 3412 for 16:10
    3. 2340 for 21:9
For other aspect ratio values, calculate 4096'*1.333/ratio (e.g. 4096*1.333/1.78=3067 for 16:9).
  1. Save the file and close the hex editor.
  2. Use dgVoodoo 2 to force a widescreen resolution and make sure Scaling mode is set to Unspecified.
