Ultra-widescreen and Multi-monitor[edit]

Modify game files for ultrawide and multi-monitor support[3]
By default, the game does not properly support resolutions wider than 21:9.
Always make sure to back-up the original .exe file before hex editing.
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\Daymare_MASTER\Binaries\Win64\
  2. Using a HEX editor, open Daymare_MASTER-Win64-Shipping.exe
  3. Using the search function, look for 35 FA 0E 3C Only replace the last entry in offset 020AD640 any other breaks the game
  4. Replace Value with your desired resolution , choose one:
  • 2560x1080 = AA 05 33 3C
  • 3440x1440 = ED D1 33 3C
  • 32:9 = FC CF 65 3C
  • 48:9 = 70 7B 8B 3C
  • 48:10 = 70 7B 8B 3C
