The SeriousSam.exe from the Steam version of SS: TSE brings two awesome features to the original SS: TSE 1.07. This containts:
1) Possibility of changing the master server to different one via using the command (net_strmasterserver="333networks.com" as example) or editing the PersistentSymbols.ini - really important since Ostap is trying to ban the whole GZ24 community in his master server, which makes all servers not visible for us
2) Widescreen fix which allows to set 16:9 / 16:10 resolutions via video settings. This is a must to use because the fov is wider now (before, if you'd add ur widescreen resolution to the persistentsymbols.ini, your view would have became circumcised above and below)

Explanations and details

The master server changer

Since GameSpy has been closed in the summer of 2014, Rocketers Alex has made the new master server (sam.ostap.eu / sam.ostap.nl) which, in less than a year, became the default master server being used in the Steam version. Ostap became the hoster of the master server.

But in the year 2017 when Ostap was fallen in hate to the whole GameZone24.Net community, started to block the master server for most of us, also he didn't let others to see our servers in the server list.

With this patcher, you finally are able to change master servers really quickly and easy. We now can change the master server to the some of working ones (let's show 333networks.com as an example here) one via using the command (net_strmasterserver="333networks.com") or editing the Scripts/PersistentSymbols.ini (search the line "persistent extern user CTString net_strMasterServer="333networks.com";")

The widescreen fix

Since nobody (or almost nobody) uses 4:3 monitors anymore, this is a must to use nowadays. With this patch you'll be able to change your resolution to 16:9 or 16:10 in the video settings:

With 1920x1080, your 3rd person view will look like that:

Here's some comparing to the 1280x1024 resolution (4:3).

Example #1:


1280x1024 (4:3):

1920x1080 (16:9):

Example #2:


1280x1024 (4:3):

1920x1080 (16:9):

Someone could have used changing to 1920x1080 by editing PersistentSymbols.ini, this is how it looked when you did it this way:


And how it actually looks with this patch:

This is not a cheat / hack, but totally official thing, which was included to the Steam version of SS: TSE since 2015.
Installing: just go to Bin and replace your SeriousSam.exe with one from the archive. Enjoy
