Call of Juarez Gunslinger: Black Borders & Bars Remove, FOV Change, Resolution and etc. (Windows)

A step by step guide (for Windows) on how to remove black borders, black bars, change the FOV, resolution, and some other things.

 

Downloading Notepad++

First off we’ve got to download Notepad++ since the config file is in .scr format and can’t be opened with the regular notepad.

Head off to the download page[notepad-plus-plus.org] and click on the lastest version. There are mainly two options that you can choose, if you have a 32-bit operating system, then the first option (32-bit / x86) is the adecuate option, click on • Installer down in the Download 32-bit x86 section. If you have a 64-bit operating system, then the second option (64-bit / x64) is what you should choose, click on • Installer down in the Download 64-bit x64 section.
Then install it, and now we can start editing the config file.

Locating the config file

The config is located in: C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\techland\cojgunslinger\out\Settings.
If you don’t know what’s your Windows username then head to C:\Users.
The config file we’re gonna edit is Video.scr.

Right click the file and choose Edit with Notepad++.

Removing black borders and black bars

Now straight to the reason you’re probably here.
• To remove the black, painted borders you just need to add this line at the bottom and end of the file:
DisableScreenBorder()
Then you’ll be left with two, almost equally annoying black bars, commonly known as a letterbox.
• To remove the letterbox / make the game truly fullscreen, you just need to add this line at the bottom and end of the file:
RenderViewportProportion(-1, -1)

Changing the FOV

• To change the console-like FOV you just need to add this line at the bottom and end of the file:
ForcedHorzFov(preferredFOV)
You can enter values between 80 and 110. Personally i recommend to use 100.
The default FOV is 82.72.

Enabling Anti-aliasing

• To enable the Anti-aliasing setting you need to:
Search the line FSAA(0) and change it to FSAA(1).

Changing the Anisotropic setting

• To change the Anisotropic setting you need to:
Search the line Filtering(Anisotropic) and change the value (Anisotropic) by the one you desire: (From left to right increasingly GPU intensive) Bilinear, Trilinear, Anisotropic, AnisotropicTrilinear.
(The value you get by default on the file could be totally different, but the process is still the same)

Changing the resolution

• To change the resolution to your heart’s content you just need to:
Search the line Resolution(1360,768) and change the value (1360,768) to the one you desire.
(The value you get by default on the file could be totally different, but the process is still the same)

How the file looks (In my case)

I’ll leave here how my file ended up looking so you can check if you don’t know where you should add the new lines or how it “should” look.
