A FOV fix is coming in a patch TODAY
Edit: The FOV patch is out!!!

--------

We worked yesterday (a holiday here in Chile) and will keep on working to fix issues.

We listen to the community. Always have. Always will.

And just to clarify a misconception from certain journalists: This is still a small indie studio making a pretty big game. I don't like the assumptions that we're now a "big" company.

---------

Edit: The patch will bring a new option in the graphic settings menu where you can choose two FOV options: 'Default' or 'Wide'. If the wide settings are not of you're liking we're opening up the FOV values to be edited in the DefaultGame.ini (this changes only the 'Wide' option).

...Sliders would have been nicer - but for a quick 2 day fix, I think this is pretty good.

Here are the values of the wide FOV that can be custom-edited in the DefaultGame.ini

[ZC2Game.ZC2Player]

;Regular FOV in the game
closeCombatFOV=100

;FOV when punching
closeCombatClunchedFOV=90

;FOV when you have a weapon in your hands
farCombatFOV=100

;Map FOV
inventoryFOV=100

;How much the FOV changes when running
runFOV_Delta=5

;FOV when grabbing an enemy
grabFOV=90

;FOV when deflect-grabbing an enemy
deflectGrabFOV=80

;All weapons have their custom aim FOVs. This number can be used to multiply the FOV values for guns.
weaponMultFOV=1.1

Gaming journalists don't have a clue. I don't know why people bother listening to them.

Good to hear, pity that the whole issue has created such a huge backlash.

well, if they took a holiday i'm pretty sure a lot of people would refrain from ever buying the game. do they deserve that?

Great news, I honestly couldn't play the game for too long before I needed a break.
Thanks for doing this guys.

Wow, spending the worker's day working shows some awesome dedication, thanks! Personally, I didn't have a problem with the narrow FOV, but it's good to hear that the game will now be accessible for more people.
I hope you can take a day off sometime else as compensation.

Excellent customer support! Something so blantantly missing with most of todays mainstream dev's. Thank you for deciding to work over your holiday. As others have indicated, it was difficult playing the game for extended periods. I didn't have motion sickness, but the way the fov reacted to zooming did bother my eyes. Again, thank you and looking forward to playing the game post patch :).

Fantastic, now go take much deserved a day off!

Thanks a lot for this, ACE Team.

I highly encourage you all send a link to this page to TotalBiscuit-related places or to his accounts; I couldn't care less what he has to say, but it would be unfortunate if his video complaining about the FOV lost the game sales after the issue has been fixed.

He already knows this. He thinks it's because of his video lol.

And please no spam mails no one likes those.

I see how different FOV's can make combat more intense. However, I have a 27" monitor and I am one of those people that get motion sick while playing. I want to keep your zoomed in effect but lessen it to a degree.

Thank you for giving us access to edit all the FOV values.
