Yesterday marked the release of Elden Ring, the new action RPG by fromSoftware. The game is excellent, but many players find it hard to enjoy it because of technical shortcomings and, in the case of the PC edition, the lack of several seemingly standard features. Fortunately, fans have rolled up their sleeves and started fixing the problems in the PC edition. As a result, several projects have already been released that offer the following changes:
- Support for ultra-panoramic monitors.
- Changeable fps cap.
- Configurable FOV (Field of View).
Many of the problems on PC can be fix on one's own.. We wrote about how to do it yesterday:
Support for ultrawide monitors with Flawless Widescreen.
To get support for ultra-wide screens (e.g. 21:9 aspect ratio), you need to use Flawless Widescreen. This is a multi-game application that has just received support for Elden Ring. Using it is simple:
- In the game folder, where the "eldenring.exe" file is located, create a file called "steam_appid.txt", and enter the following in the body of the file:
- Run Flawless Widescreen, select Elden Ring and change the settings.
- Then just run eldenring.exe.
This solution has one disadvantage - in order for it to work, we need to disable the anti-cheat (this is what you do by creating a "steam_appid.txt" file in the game folder) to avoid the risk of getting banned. As a result, however, you will only be able to play in the single player mode.

Changing FOV and fps cap
In turn, changing the width of the field of view and the frame rate cap is enabled by the mod FPS Unlocker and more.
Here again, in order not to risk getting banned (it's unknown if the mod can cause it, but for now it's better not to tempt fate), you should stick to single player mode only, just in case. To do this, in your game folder, where the "eldenring.exe" file is located, create a file called "steam_appid.txt" and in its contents type:
The project is at an early stage of development, so many of its elements have not yet been polished. However, the creator is already working on improvements and also plans to add new features.

Bandai Namco Entertainment apologizes for technical issues
Finally, it is worth mentioning that Bandai Namco Entertainment, the publisher of the game, apologized to the players for the technical problems in a post on the official blog and assured that work on fixes is in progress.
On PC, for now, the developers recommend updating GPU drivers, as their latest versions have been optimized for Elden Ring.
