Feild of View (FOV) Tweak

Quote
It's not a menu option and it's not very clear, so I thought I would tell everyone how to change the FOV (field of view) in the game. Most games are at 85 or 90 degrees but this game defaults to a ridiculous 65 degrees -- you can thanks consoles for this change in gaming ("zooming in" the game view allows the system to render less and feel "more immediate" to console players).

In MP it's very easy: simply open up the console (~ key) and type:

cg_fov 80

and hit enter. Unfortunately 80 is the maximum the game allows (so that players cant set their vision to 180 degrees and see enemies approaching from the side). It will save and you won't have to enter this again.

For some reason, SP is more difficult to set (so that it stays). Go into your config folder (forgetting the exact path right now), and open up the SP config file. Add this line to the end:

seta cg_fov "80"

not forgetting the quotation marks. Save the file and you're set! In SP you CAN set up to 180 degrees (and even more) if you like. Set it to 80 if you want it to be exactly like your MP view or 90 if you want it to belike how most FPS's have been since Wolfenstein 3D.

Enjoy! This should greatly help those who get motion sickness.
