MO2 and Widescreen (21:9)


I have a 21:9 monitor and using NMM I have three tried and tested ways of using Skyrim SE with it. First is to use Flawless Widescreen, a popular piece of software. Secondly is to amend the SkyrimPrefs.ini with the screen size. Third, to add a mod that amends menus, etc.


In MO2, the obvious thing would be to amend the Prefs INI in Default and any profiles. But MO2 refuses to act on any amendment to the Prefs.ini and presents me with Skyrim Launcher's interpretation, a smaller, wider letter box screen in which everything looks 2 feet tall.


I did try running Flawless Widescreen as an MO2 exe, but that didn't work.


Is there a way I can force MO2's Prefs INI to take precedence?


Thank you!

Oh wait - I seem to have resolved this myself by making sure ALL the Prefs INIs are the same, and Flawless Widescreen's Generic settings also have the screen size as additional "insurance".  The two common widescreen Nexus mods work OK now, too.

So - user error as usual!  I'll leave this pasted here to help others.

The prefs should of loaded from the profile, Its being a bit temperamental to be honest. Testing compiling with Tannin's code optimization settings and it seems to be working. So will release with it.

      Hello there, I've been trying to find a way to color the text for separators. The text color is either black and white, but sometimes it's black on a separator that shares the same color of others that have white text. I would really like to be able to control the color of both the separator bar and it's text.

      Hi everyone,

      I have a portable installation of MO2 on a different drive than the OS, same drive where Skyrim is installed, and since I updated to Windows 11 I can't start Skyrim through MO2 either with or without all mods, SKSE. If I start it from outside of MO2 in any way, it works fine (with SKSE too). What could be the issue?

      Hey everybody, i ran into an issue that i was hoping someone would help me with.
      last night when i was installing my mods from STEP 2.0.0 Guide, my PC accidentally turned off and on again, after it turned back on and i went to open MO2 i found all my mods rearranged alphabetically into the last separator, and all of them were unticked. as seen in the screenshots.
      Is there a way to revert this and not go through the menace of rearranging all of the 310 mods into their separators?
