What you need to do:
IMPORTANT! Always make a backup of a file before editing it!

  1. Go to this folder: "C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\MOE\Saved\Config\WindowsClient\".

    "AppData\Local" is a hidden folder in the user folder so unless you have the show hidden files/folders option ticked you will not see this folder.

    You can go directly to the "AppData\Local" folder by typing "%localappdata%" in the Windows search box and press Enter (the "AppData\Local" folder will now open in a new window) or by opening File Explorer and type "%localappdata%" in the address bar and hit Enter. From there you navigate to MOE -> Saved -> Config -> WindowsClient.


  2. In the mentioned folder open the file called "Engine.ini". Open it with a text editor like for example Notepad.

  3. When you've opened the file "Engine.ini" with Notepad scroll down to the end of the file and add the below two lines to "Engine.ini":

    [/script/engine.localplayer]
    AspectRatioAxisConstraint=AspectRatio_MaintainYFOV


  4. Save the file "Engine.ini" and close Notepad, now fire up the game and you should be able to scroll out further to see your character in full and have a normal/better FOV.

Before and after FOV fix:
  • Before FOV fix (3440x1440):


  • After FOV fix (3440x1440):

Sure, ill add two images of what it looks like with and without the FOV fix. I myself play on a 35" ultrawide and it makes a big difference because before i could only see half of my character when fully zoomed out, with the FOV fix i can see my whole character when fully zoomed out.
