About This File

What is this?

This fix lets you change the FOV of the singleplayer campaign, including the size of the weapon model. It is simple to install and use and comes with a GUI for easy configuration.

 

Overview

Description

Despite being a decent PC version, the singleplayer of Modern Warfare Remastered lacks the option to set the FOV. Even though the default FOV is not as horrible as in other Call of Duty games, it still makes the campaign unpleasant or outright unplayable for some people.

 

This fix aims to fix this issue by providing an easy and convenient way to set the FOV for the game.

 

Features

  • Option to set the vertical FOV to almost arbitrary values
  • Option to set the FOV scale of the weapon model
  • Simple to install and use
  • Easy to configure via a GUI and ingame bindings

Important: This fix is specifically designed for the singleplayer campaign and will not work with the multiplayer version

 

 

Instructions

Supported Versions

  • Steam

Important: This fix relies on the layout of the executable. Although it uses techniques to make it more robust to modifications of the game, it might have to be updated when the game is patched

 

 

Install

The fix does not make any permanent changes to the system, the game or the configuration of the game and can easily be removed (see below).

  1. Extract the XInput1_3.dll and the MWRSPFovFixGUI.exe files to the main folder of the game. For example "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered\"
  2. Start the MWRSPFovFixGUI.exe to configure the fix as desired
  3. Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode

A few additional notes on the installation:

  • You should hear a FOV Fix loaded message on game launch when the fix was loaded. This sound can be turned off in the config
  • The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable package; both of which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required versions here and here

Uninstall

  1. Remove the XInput1_3.dll from the game's main folder.

Configuration

To configure the fix you can use the GUI application. Remember that you can hover over almost any option with the mouse to get an explanatory tooltip.

 

There are two FOV settings. The vertical FOV Base and the FOV Weapon Scale factor. The effective FOV is calculated by multiplying these two values. The scaling factor also affects the way the weapon is displayed in addition to the camera.

 

By default the game uses a base FOV of 65.0 and a weapon scaling of 1.0. For a 16:9 27 inch display I am using a FOV Base of 66.0 and a FOV Weapon Scale of 1.15.

 

Note that the settings can also be adjusted while in the game by using the corresponding keybindings.

 

Additional Information

What You Should Know

Since the fix consists of an executable DLL-File, I could have put any harmful shenanigans in there. You just have to trust me that the file is clean.

 

If you don't -- and why should you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file. Be aware however, that because the fix uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could trigger anti-virus software without being harmful.

 

Known Issues

There are currently no known issues with the fix.

      In Martian Gothic: Unification, the ending video (<path-to-game>\data\outro.bik) can be corrupted. The other videos aren't. If it is, when it should play the game crash. The used game installation was fully updated with all the available patches.
      Can be tested if it's corrupted using the last RAD Video Tools/Bink and Smacker (Actually Bink 2021.3/Smacker 4.2e) and trying to playing it. If its corrupted it should play with big greens and blues squares as the screenshot. Also MPC-HC doesn't play the video (only the audio) but VLC plays it normally.
      It seems it's about of using a different encoding than the others videos, which doesn't match the binkw32.dll bundled with the game. The game seems to be using Bink compatible with RAD Video Tools 1.0e (which is the one available when this game was launched), and the video is created with 0.8 or below, or a higher version.
      So the attached video is the same video reencoded with Rad Video Tools 1.0e. To fix the video, change the original file in <path-to-game>\data\outro.bik with this one.
      No need to point it out, but this is the ending and it has spoilers, although not the big ones.

      Unpack the archive (password is pcgw), then use the trainer to modify the game FOV in real time.
      Make sure to run the game first to let the program detect it.

      Tested the Epic and Steam versions.

      This restores the cut voicelines of hero units in the mission Hollywood and Vain which were cut by patch 1.01
       
      Copy the rulesmd.ini file to the root folder.

      The tool corrects the field of view decrease affecting ultrawide resolutions and removes side black bars from the game. It also allows to change the field of view at any resolution in real time.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip or PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the FOV correction key and further adjust the FOV if necessary. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      The FOV correction approach is inspired by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080 and 3840x1080.

      The tool for the Microsoft Store version of the game is based in part on the Flawless Widescreen findings by HaYDeN, removing black bars from the game and allowing to change the third-person and first-person field of view in real time.
      Unpack the archive with software like 7zip or PeaZip using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Enable the black bars fix and press Alt+Enter in the game twice to properly adjust the aspect ratio. Alternatively, enable the fix at the loading intro screens. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Tested the latest Game Pass version primarily at 2560x1080, briefly at 3440x1440 and 3840x1080.
