I've made a patch to bring 16:9 and 32:9 aspect ratio support to this old gem:

https://www.moddb.com/games/boiling-point-roa … de-screen-patch

Otherwise this game still runs pretty well on modern machines - it was hanging on exit in later versions of Windows 10 (but not 11 apparently) so I fixed that too, implemented a higher FOV, etc. List of changes:

  • Makes everything look right with 16:9 or 32:9 aspect ratio resolutions, including the main menu / HUD / inventory / inside vehicles / etc
  • increased FOV
  • 'hanging on exit' fix
  • used the version of the DLLs that came with the RU only 'Gold' version of the game, which are supported to be more stable
  • head-bob motion changed
  • jump height increased

Life? Don't talk to me about life.
