Widescreen resolution
16:9; use Flawless Widescreen to remove letterboxing.
Flawless Widescreen released a fix, but it is not working properly. Multi-monitor image is being shrunk to fit on only the center monitor.
Use Flawless Widescreen. It works but with some flaws: elements and assets outside of 16:9 area appear and disappear while you move through the scenario. Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition has proper 21:9 support.

Game assets are upscaled from 1920x1080.[3]

Controller remapping[edit]

Patching a game file[4][5]

Excerpt from tool's Readme:

  1. Download JoystickTest application
  2. Go to https://github.com/beatcracker/Ori-Controller-Remap
  3. In the bottom right corner click Download ZIP
  4. Unblock ZIP file before unpacking
  5. Unpack downloaded ZIP file
  6. Go to the Ori-Controller-Remap-master folder
  7. Open Ori_Controller_Remap.ini. This file contains controller button mappings for known controllers (Cyborg Rumble Pad, Logitech Dual Action, etc.) and one for you to edit (Your Controller Name).
  8. Run JoystickTest application
  9. Punch buttons on your controller, note their numbers in JoystickTest, edit ini file accordingly
  10. Replace Your Controller Name with any text you like (your controller name, your pet name, your maiden name - it's all up to you).
  11. Save Ori_Controller_Remap.ini
  12. Double-click Ori_Controller_Remap.cmd file, it will launch PowerShell script
  13. When asked, select configuration you've edited earlier in the ini file
  14. Press any key and wait for script to patch your Ori with new controller mapping


How it works: PowerShell script will replace a part of Ori's code contained in the Assembly-CSharp.dll file. This new code will query the Unity engine for the remapped buttons, instead of original ones, requested by game.
If you have any issues, see Troubleshooting section of the Readme.
