For Portal 2, the fov can be changed to whatever I feel like via cl_fov 110.
However, in Portal 1, no command that I use is having effect. It doesn't even seem to change it to values within the non cheat range. Sv_cheats 1 needs to be enabled and none of the following commands work: fov "xx" default_fov "xx" fov_desired "xx" fov "xx" And cl_fov "xx" seems to not even be recognized for Portal 1.
I hope it's not necessary to argue with people that poop on threads they don't agree with. I'm just looking to play a single player game the way I'm comfortable. One of these commands used to work for Portal 1, I just haven't played it in a couple years and wanted to give it another go.
Thanks for any help and any testing confirmation. Much appreciated.
