A guide on how to remove black bars in The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes.

How to Remove Black Bars

In this guide, I will show you, how to remove black bars on wide screens(16:9,16:10,21:9,32:9).

  1. You need to download the Flawless Widescreen program.
  2. Download the fix and install it in the folder with Flawless Widescreen
  3. Open the program and make sure that the fix is turned on. The fix can be turned on before starting the game, or during the game.
  4. Don’t forget to rate this guide 😉

An example of how the fix works, before and after:

When the fix is on, there is a small drop in FPS (5-15%),instead of black bars, a full picture is rendered. If the FPS sags heavily, then I recommend decreasing the graphics in

  • C:\Users \Your Name User\AppData\Local\HouseOfAshes\Saved\Config\WindowsnoEditor file GameUserSettings.ini

We need these values:

  • def – default value rec- guide recommend
  • sg.ResolutionQuality=100.000000(def) 90-95 (rec)
  • sg.PostProcessQuality=3(def) 2(rec)

The rec value will raise the fps to a level without fixing and do not degrade the graphics. If the fps is still low, play with values from 0 to 3 both with values above and with these:

  • sg.ViewDistanceQuality=3(def)
  • sg.EffectsQuality=3(def)
  • sg.FoliageQuality=3(def)
  • sg.ShadingQuality=3(def)

Before manipulating, I advise you to copy the original file in order to return the default settings in case of anything.
