FOV changer
Guys, I need your help.
The FOV of this game makes me sick...real sick.
I became ill, and I nearly puked.
At the moment I'm trying to find a solution for this problem,
but please give me some advice for that.

Sorry for my bad english, I'm german :P

1. Go to the user.cfg file located at X:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\4A Games\Metro 2033

2. Edit it with a text editor such as Notepad

3. Find the value called: sick_fov 45.

4. Change this value to sick_fov ##.(## being the desired number) (including the period at the end)

5. Save and close the file. Now start the game.

While this works, it's far, far from perfect. The game goes into some weird dream-vision at 90, 60 works the best.


here is a link if you want to mess around with the settings

Best FOV is at 60-70

You actually need to change the FOV in three files.

C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\4a Games\Metro 2033
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steamapps\common\Metro 2033
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\<number>\43110\remote

Change the value of "sick_fov" to 60 in all three of the user.cfg files and it will work.

I'm bumping this to tell players that the game uses a vertical FOV, and so your usual 90 degrees will result in, as stated above, totally whack visuals. Use this handy dandy calculator to reach your desired field of view, fellows. http://www.rjdown.co.uk/projects/bfbc2/fovcalculator.php
Make sure that you set the file to read-only as well.
