sg optionsfieldofviewnew 100 no longer works. How to change FOV beyond 85 slider cap?

Recommended Posts

I see they finally added a FOV that people have been asking for for years. One problem, it's capped at 85 which makes me ill. And the fov console command no longer works. It was a pain in the ass because you had to activate it every time you played, but at least it was a work-around. So is there a new console command for the FOV?

Nope, they finally add the slider back and it's capped at 85. Don't know why they would do that, but they did. The command as far as I know doesn't do anything anymore, which sucks. Sometimes the Fun Pimps use gorilla logic when they do something. No rhyme nor reason.

I think the command still works, it's just held to the same constraints as the slider.

 

The theory is that this was done to a. stabilize performance for bug reports, and b. to curb the ability to look through the underground to some extent.

Well, a lot of us just play single player and have no worries about some cheater looking underground. Can we at least enable a wider FOV in single player and just disable it in server configs and client configs when connected to a server? Or, you know, maybe just enable it regardless of SP or MP and let admins get rid of cheaters like they always have? That way you're not making a lot of people stop playing because the FOV setting literally makes them queasy?

The command does not work at all. I tried using it to lower the FOV to 40 or 50, but nothing ever happens. Also, I debunked your statement about FOV cap limiting cheating and seeing underground. See the video in this thread

Personally I hated the decision to remove FOV console command, I always played mine on 90, and anything else made it feel as though I was crawling around pushing a peanut with my nose.

 

I did discover (and also reported) a bug which arose when changing FOV.

 

There are occasions when you see a zombie semi-behind an obstacle (most notably obstacles in POI's such as furniture, washing machine etc) when you then target in on them using sight/scope, they disappear and the object suddenly appears in between you and them, completely removing your ability to take a clean shot.

 

I was able to reproduce this a number of times and it was 100% definitely the FOV that was the culprit.

 

I guess they just decided to standardize it to level the playing field and give themselves (and players) a boundary.

 

85 FOV slider is better than nothing I guess, and def better than having to go into the console every time you play.

Ok, reallyreallyreally NEED higher FOV. period fullstop. I love this game, but not enough to endure hours of simulator sickness to play it.

Yep they killed the game. After thousands of hours I can no longer play. The stupidly low FOV on single player makes me feel sick. Seems you're taking lots of steps backwards fun pimps.

it's still there, just renamed. i'm not going to say what it is now since i'm not 100% sure if it was renamed due to exploits.

Thanks that's very useful.  So my post still stands. Had to go back to A17 for anyone else having issues. Guess we're not allowed to change the FOV outside of the stupidly low even though I've *never* played a multiplayer game. It's starting to look like 7 days has run its course.
