Death Stranding – Ultrawide Resolution fix for Black Bars

How to fix black bars issue on ultrawide resolutions in Death Stranding

  1. Install a Hex Editor. Any Hex Editor would. Personally I use HxD
  2. Launch HxD
  3. Click on File
  4. Open the executable file of Death Stranding which in this case is ds.exe
  5. Press Ctrl+R
  6. Click on the “Hex-values” tab
  7. Set Search Direction to “All”
  8. Write 55 55 15 40 in “Search for”
  9. “Replace with” Hex value of your Resolution’s Aspect Ratio

Here are the values of some common resolutions:

Resolution Value
2560×1080 26 B4 17 40
3440×1440 8E E3 18 40
5120×2160 26 B4 17 40
6880×2880 8E E3 18 40
3840×1080 39 8E 63 40
5120×1440 39 8E 63 40

Now just click on Replace All. Save everything and launch the game.
