BC2 FOV setting is vertical....I guess horizontal automatically scales and pixels stay 1:1 when its changed.

Ahh... So in my case (1280x720) putting 90 in gives me a 121 degree field of view. Interesting.

So to get 90 I'd want to put 59 in there.

I think I want 110 though, so I'll put in a 78.


Thanks Lee63!! Added to OP!

Finally downloading from Steam at 500kb/s. Not blazing speeds but oh well, I knew those speeds would happen.

I tried to copy over the source files from my "other source", then verify the game and it didn't work for some reason. Downloading again from Steam, getting decent speeds.

Boxed version arrived at my door about 20 minutes ago... gonna install it in a sec. Stadard box, nothing special.

110 FOV is pretty insane rage, 95 is about the top for 16:9 in my testing.
