How to Fix the Nine Sols Ultrawide Issue on PC

Borderless Gaming to the rescue!

Red Candle Games is back with Nine Sols, a 2D action platformer inspired by Sekiro’s deflection system. It isn’t very demanding to run on PC, and has a decent amount of options to adjust, and support for multiple input types. However, Nine Sols does not have proper ultrawide support, and you’ll see black bars at the sides. Here is how you can fix these problems using a handy tool.

Fixing Nine Sols Ultrawide Issues on PC

To play Nine Sols at ultrawide, you need to use the Borderless Gaming tool from Codeusa.

This forces the game to render at borderless fullscreen mode and removes the black bars from the sides in many games developed on Unity. Setting it up is pretty simple, and I’ll explain the steps in detail below.

  • Head over to the following GitHub page, and download the latest free release under Assets (BorderlessGaming9.5.6_admin_setup.exe)
  • Install Borderless Gaming, and it will show up in your taskbar with a “BG” icon
  • Now, launch Nine Sols, and make sure Fullscreen is set to Off
  • After this, minimize Nine Sols, and open Borderless Gaming from the taskbar
  • In the Applications, select Nine Sols and click the forward arrow to add it to Favorites
  • Now, right-click on it to make sure “Fullscreen” and “Auto-Maximize” are checked

That’s all you need to do, and Nine Sols will automatically switch to the borderless fullscreen mode with the black bars removed. Keep in mind that some UI elements might not render correctly, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for the most part.

This is how Nine Sols looks with and without Borderless Gaming.

We really hope that the developers consider adding official support for ultrawide resolutions in a future update. While it’s still not as common, ultrawide monitors are getting popular by the year, and a lack of proper support results in black bars that get in the way of immersion.
