How to get ultra wide 21:9 support without black bars in DBZ Kakarot?

Since there’s no official ultra-wide support in DBZ Kakarot, if you want to have a 21:9 aspect ratio without black bars, you’ll have to resort to some hacking. Namely, you’ll have to use a hex editor to change some values in the game files. Keep in mind, this is pretty risky stuff – you could change something that breaks the game, which would mean you’d have to redownload the entire thing. There’s also no guarantee it’s going to work, but it should. If you still want to give it a go, you can follow this guide.

How to get 4K & 60 FPS in DBZ Kakarot?

If you want to play DBZ Kakarot in fullscreen at 60 FPS, you’ll have to turn off Vsync. It caps the framerate at 30, so it absolutely must go. If you experience screen tearing afterwards, you should force Vsync on through the graphics card control panel. A borderless window will let you run the game’s own Vsync at 60 FPS, so you can also try switching to that.

As for the resolution, it’s a much simpler affair: there’s a setting for the internal resolution in the game, which is probably set to 100 by default. This is the operating system’s current resolution. So if you’re running Windows at 1080p, and you want the game to be 4k, simply put down 200 in the box and it should work. If you’re using two monitors, you might want to unplug the secondary one – some players have reported that helped.
