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.

      Option 1 (patchers):
      Unpack the patcher archive and use the applicable tool to patch the exe in \MoonMan\Binaries\Win64\ within the main folder. This will adjust FOV to match the vertical of 16:9. The tool also aims to remove all pillarboxing except from pre-rendered cutscenes but this may come at the cost of reduced FOV in the starting cutscene. Some further cutscenes are confirmed as having more horizontal FOV but there is no way to guarantee every cutscene will display correctly without playing through the game. Option 2 (trainer, supports Microsoft Store):
      Unpack the trainer / Game Pass archive with software like 7zip - the password is pcgw Launch the game Launch the tool Press the black bars removal key before a cutscene and use the other buttons to adjust FOV as desired Tested the latest GOG and Microsoft Store versions at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      A total overhaul of the old Flawless Widescreen script for GTA V that has been dysfunctional for many months if not longer.
      As before, it allows for fine-tuning of FOV per each view - first person, in-vehicle, ADS, and third person. It also allows to remove the pillarboxing at cutscenes at 21:9 and wider, although having the latter enabled may cause some confirmation prompts to disappear at 32:9 and wider until disabled.
      Download and install Flawless Widescreen. Download this script and unpack the archive. Put its contents in the main Flawless Widescreen folder (usually \Program Files (x86)\Flawless Widescreen\). Launch Flawless Widescreen, select Grand Theft Auto V (updated) and set everything to preference. Tested the latest game version at 2560x1080, 3440x1440, 3840x1080, and 5760x1080.

      The trainer allows for real-time FOV adjustment in the game.
      Unpack the archive - the password is pcgw Launch the game Launch the tool and press the keys as instructed The underlying script is built around the FOV bytes for Shantae found by czarman.
      For permanent changes or manual adjustment, modify the first instance of those bytes in a hex editor.

      Tested the latest Steam version.
