Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Latest Steam version (released March 2019) is no longer compatible with Widescreen Fixer fix and causes the game to crash.

It is possible to roll back the game to an older version which makes changing the FOV through WF work again, but this leads to losing other fixes that the latest steam version made like introducing the option to disable aim assist.

This game uses vertical FOV. See FOV Calculator for help.
Using Widescreen Fixer[citation needed]
  1. Launch Widescreen Fixer and select the game from the drop down menu.
  2. Click the settings cog icon, disable Automatically Detect Resolution and enter your display count/resolution manually; otherwise the menu/HUD could be scaled incorrectly.
  3. Adjust the FOV slider to the desired vertical FOV.
  4. Go to the Settings tab and set the toggle hotkey if you wish.
  5. Start the game and once you've passed the start screen with the big eye, use Alt+Tab to go back to the desktop, then you can enable the fix by pressing the hotkey, finally go back to the game.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/222480/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (222480) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
