Change F.E.A.R. 3 FOV

Trying to complete the F.E.A.R. trilogy and I’m again smacked in the face with god damn narrow FOV. Can developers be less of a fucking lazy bastards and add this shitty setting in the actual game? Has no one of these assholes ever tried to play a game with such horribly narrow field of view on a wide-screen monitor at 1m range? It’s painful as hell. But nope, 10 years later and everyone is still doing this shit because muh consoles. Fuck the consoles, Jesus…

Anyway, here is the quick guide to change the FOV for F.E.A.R.3 (sometimes also F.3.A.R.)…

Open folder (for Steam version):
.\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\common\F.E.A.R. 3

Open “options.cfg” with Notepad and look for entry:

# Override FOV for narrow aspect ratio displays.  Range 65 (narrow) to 85 (wide).
#-fov:75

Delete the # in front of -fov:75 and change the number according to your FOV preference. For my eyes, 100 feels just about right.

In the end it should look like this:

# Override FOV for narrow aspect ratio displays.  Range 65 (narrow) to 85 (wide).
-fov:100

Save the document and play the game.

Enjoy the game, without a massive headache and bleeding eyes…
