SEGA gave PC gamers a surprise by releasing Bayonetta for PC. Despite the game running smoothly it still had some issues which included excessive CPU usage and the lack of the ability to disable black borders in aspect ratios other than 16:9. However, Platinum Games have fixed these issues with its latest Bayonetta PC patch.
This latest Bayonetta PC patch fixes the issues with the in-game MSAA options, along with the excessive CPU usage and adds the ability to disable black borders for all aspect ratios. According to the devs, Bayonetta was “originally designed to a 16:9 aspect ratio only, and as such, certain UI elements will be distorted with this lock disabled; for example, the book that appears before boss fights may appear off-centre, etc”.
In order to disable or enable black borders “quit Bayonetta, right click on Bayonetta in your games library in Steam, go to “Properties” then choose the “Local Files” tab and click on “Browse Local Files”. This will open up an explorer window, and inside the subfolder “Apsect Unlock” are 2 registry files” named “DisableAspectLock.reg” and
If you want to enable the lock then double click EnableAspectLock.reg and if you want to disable the lock then double click DisableAspectLock.reg.
