Hi @paul_met
The Grandia patch acts strange. When you pick an item in the field or dungeon, the game will revert back to 4:3 after the item management screen. But if you enter the menus and go back, the 16:9 ratio will be restored.
I'm using your hack with the translated patch on disc 1, running on real hardware (burned CDR).

Can you give me a savestate for Yabause to check this issue?

It's hard because I don't do saturn emulation, will have to set it up and play a good hour. But Trekkies gave a good tip above, maybe that's the issue?
Then at least a screenshot, so that I understand what exactly are you talking about.

Hi. Here's a video. Notice the widescreen disabled after I pick up the item and enabled after I enter and exit the inventary menu. This happens every time.

I see. The matter was really in the file "ITGET.BIN". To fix this bug with changing the aspect ratio after receiving the item, you need to go to the address 0x3D64 and replace the four bytes with "0000E0A8".

Thank you, but I expected you to update your patch. :-/

@paul_met I apreciate the patch update. Works fine now. I have another thing to report (forgot to talk about it earlier).
Sometimes when you start a battle, there's some glitched lines on the sides of the battle screen when it's zoomed out. I know the battle backgroud is 4:3 ratio and it is forcing it to show something that shouldn't. If this can't be fixed, maybe it will be better to have the battles 4:3 fixed?
Here's a video. There are two battles in it, in the first one you can see the lines and in the second one, can not. It all random and happens in the entire game.

The size of the arena is not enough to fill the wide screen. Color lines on the sides I see for the first time. Perhaps this is the behavior of the game on the console. If you want to keep the aspect ratio of 4: 3 in the battle, then you should replace the modified "BATLE.BIN" file with the original one.
