1. Start a new game with any character
2. Scroll to edge of map (west)


A large black border covers almost half the screen


No black border should be present.


Black border severely detracts from game immersion, especially during area transitions. When initiating dialogue, or if camera is centered on a party member when at edge of screen, half the screen is black.

Please remove or reduce in size to minimal size necessary (no more than an inch).

Alternately, please move any edge-of-the-map signs that were being cut-off, making the black borders unnecessary.

This is by design. The user interface used to cover several locations(such as the south border of maps). They attempted to make it dock with the UI but it never quite worked correctly. This way is far smoother.

This is a bad design choice which is really brokes my game expirience.

I understand why this was introduced but it's pretty ridiculous to be able to move the map borders into the center of the screen. Surely that much isn't necessary. It would look much better to remove most of this visible blank space.
