Widescreen Fixes Pack is a set of plugins by ThirteenAG that corrects a number of display and scaling issues when using widescreen resolutions. The pack includes fixes for, among others, GTA 1, GTA 2, GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas. It especially corrects the annoying crosshair misalignment for GTA III and Vice City. Other notable tweaks for some games include field-of-view control and text shadow replaced with outline. The mod is bundled with the Ultimate ASI Loader and modupdater.
