Crash Bandicoot 4

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is the latest entry in the long-running platforming series. This title is developed by Toys for Bob that previously worked on the Spyro and Crash remaster trilogies. Suffice to say, they know what they’re doing, and it shows in Crash 4 as well. The title was met with critical and user acclaim and has now made its way to PC as well. The port runs exceptionally well, but it isn’t perfect. Players running into Crash Bandicoot 4 Ultrawide Issues can follow this guide to get the best possible experience.

The game is available on PC only through, and requires users to be online at all times. This isn’t uncommon for all the titles on, and it’s a shame that even a single-player game has that requirement.

Fixing the Crash Bandicoot 4 Ultrawide Issues

Now, even though Crash 4 has ultrawide resolution support, it isn’t perfect. There are black bars that users have to see during gameplay. This can really ruin the immersion for most players that have invested in an ultrawide setup. To fix this, follow the steps below.

Download and install HxD

  • First, you need to download and install the HexEditor

Launch and use HxD

  • Launch HxD, which you previously installed
  • After that, simply drag Lava-Win64-Shipping.exe into HxD. This can be found in the following location

  • Some hex numbers should appear, as shown below

  • Press CTRL+R, and then select Hex-Values
  • After this click on Search Direction “All”
  • In the search Window, you want to enter 3B 8E E3 3F
  • Replace that with one of the following values based on your resolution
    • CD CC CC 3F for 1440×900
    • 00 00 A0 3F for 1280×1024
    • 26 B4 17 40 for 2560×1080
    • 8E E3 18 40 for 3440×1440
    • 39 8E 63 40 for 3840×1080
    • 9A 99 19 40 for 3840×1600
    • 00 00 A0 3F for 4120×1024
    • 39 8E 63 40 for 5160×1440
    • AE 47 A1 40 for 5292×1050
    • AB AA AA 40 for 7680×1440

Keep in mind, that pre-rendered (not in-game) cutscenes will be stretched. Thank you Reddit user jcbfrmnm for providing the solution. Here is a video demonstration of Crash running at an ultrawide resolution. Recent games like Yakuza 6 have some strange stuttering problems, and we have written a guide for you to fix that.
