Hogwarts Legacy is a massive hit on PC, as well as consoles. The PC version is decent enough, but there are some technical issues and limited implementation of ultrawide resolutions. If you want to fix the Hogwarts Legacy ultrawide resolution to remove black bars from cutscenes, here’s how you can do that.

Fixing the Hogwarts Legacy Ultrawide Issue

As mentioned, Hogwarts Legacy has black bars during cutscenes, which can take you out a bit while playing. To address this, Lyall from the Widescreen gaming community have created a fix for this, and here is how you can install it.

  • Head over to the following GitHub link
  • Scroll down a bit, and download the latest patch zip under Assets by clicking. As of writing, it is version 1.0.
  • Head to where the game is installed and extract the file using Winrar or 7zip. This is commonly the following location.
steamapps\common\Hogwarts Legacy
  • Open the HogwartsLegacyFix.ini file using a text editor like Notepad or Notepad++, which allows you to adjust different aspects of this patch
  • By default, it will apply the necessary fixes for your current resolution as a reference
