Widescreen resolution[edit]

Only 16:10 resolutions are supported natively when "Widescreen" is enabled in Juiced Config. However, with resolutions above 4:3, the HUD will be stretched.
Widescreen (15:9, 16:9, 21:9) and FOV fix[5]
  1. Go to the installation folder.
  2. Open JuicedConfig.exe.
  3. Set your resolution and check the "Widescreen" option.
  4. Open Juiced.exe with a hex editor such as HxD.
  5. Press Ctrl+F and find the floating point number 1.15.
  6. Press F3 once.
  7. Press Ctrl+R, select floating point number, and type in the second text field:
    • 1.066666 for 15:9 screens
    • 1 for 16:9 screens
    • 0.8 for 21:9 screens
  8. If you have a 15:9 or 16:9 screen and you don't need to change the FOV, then that's all. But if you need to change the FOV or you have a 21:9 screen:
    1. Go to the beginning of the file.
    2. Press Ctrl+R and select floating point number.
    3. Type 1.3 in the first text field, and type in the second text field:
      • 1.37 or less for 15:9 screens
      • 1.4 or less for 16:9 screens
      • 1.777777 for 21:9 screens
  9. Save the changes.


Be careful: Sometimes, instead of a value of (for example) 0.0, 0,0 can actually be represented. In other words, not a point (.) but a comma (,)
