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.

      The tool adjusts the field of view of the game to address the decrease affecting 21:9 and wider resolutions, vertically matching each scene to that of 16:9. It also removes the black bars from the menu screens and the cutscenes (prominent at 32:9 and wider). Lastly, it allows to manually modify the field of view in real time.
      Download the archive and unpack it using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Press the keys as instructed to remove the black bars, fix the FOV, or adjust it in real time. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Inspired in part by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Game Pass version at 2560x1080 and briefly at 3840x1080.

      Compared to the existing solutions from WSGF made to remove the black bars appearing in the game at 21:9 and wider resolutions, this tool perfectly matches the vertical field of view of each scene to that of 16:9, also allowing to see and adjust the current FOV in real time.
      Download the archive and unpack it using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Apply the fix before the main menu appears or at the main menu before loading into a game. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Inspired in part by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      You need to have Cheat Engine installed, then launch the game, open the table, attach it to the process and use the hotkeys:
       
      F4 - activate the mod
      F5 - reset FoV to default
      F6 - Increase FoV
      F7 - Decrease FoV
      F8 - Set FoV to default +30°
       
      Quick video to show the mod in action: https://streamable.com/2iosxc
       
      Known issues:
      If you set an offset too high or too low the camera will flip upside down, just press F5 to reset it.
      In-engine cutscenes are also affected, things that weren't supposed to be in the shot may behave oddly.
      Vehicle weapon crosshairs may be off-center (higher) when using higher FoV, just aim a bit higher than the actual target.
