Many Old PC Games Given Widescreen Support Thanks to Modder

Have you ever wanted to take a trip down memory lane to some of the most memorable PC games of the generation? Games like Grand Theft Auto: 3, Vice City and San Andreas? or perhaps fancy yourself for a few games of Max Payne 1 / 2? Sadly the games were made in the time where Widescreen resolutions weren’t really in the mainstream scene and hence many games don’t show up as nicely on the modern 16:9 / 16:10 displays, A modder going by the forum handle of, ThirteenAG, on GTA Forums, has done some astounding work on making some proper “fixes” for many classic games and has covered a variety of them thus far.

Many Old PC Games Given Widescreen Support Thanks to Modder, Time to replay those classics!

If you have been aching to play some of your favorite and most loved dated PC games, but can’t bring yourself to playing them because the default “widescreen” option for the game just don’t look that good. A modder of the GTA Forums has put a lot of time and effort into testing, compiling and sharing the various files that make a proper widescreen resolution possible on these ancient games of the PC!

Currently the games that are supported are:

  • GTA 3
  • GTA Vice City
  • GTA San Andreas
  • Max Payne
  • Max Payne 2
  • Manhunt
  • NFS Most Wanted (2005)
  • Need for Speed Underground 1
  • Need for Speed Underground 2
  • Need for Speed Carbon
  • The Gun
  • Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy)
  • Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition

These games are only the beginning of many to come! Halo 2 was recently fixed too thanks to Durante, and of course the community will continue to expand. I highly recommend you bookmark the Source and visit it frequently to check if your favorite game has made the list yet!

What game are you hoping to replay in Widescreen?
