[MOD] Increased FOV

Default FOV:

New FOV:

Download the mod here -
http://www.gamefront.com/files/21008...rd+fov+mod.zip

Just unzip the .xtbl file into the same directory as saintsrowthethird.exe.

I've only done minimal testing on this, so things might be broken. In order to make this mod, I just used Gibbed mod tools to unpack the camera config file and increased all the default_fov values by about 50%.

Testing, no gaps seen so far.

Will inform if something is broken.

Thanks m8

The download didn't work at first, The URL would break when it tried to load the file to download, but then I tried loading the website in firefox rather than chrome and it worked fine.

As for the mod itself, thank you SO MUCH. I spent the better half of yesterday afternoon looking for a mod like this because the default cramped FOV gives me motion sickness after just a few minutes and renders the game unplayable for me. I couldn't find anything though.

This mod however fixes everything, I just gave it a quick test and as soon as I loaded the game I could feel my eyes relaxing in relief. Now I can play without keeping a bucket next to my desk.

This is exactly what I am looking for. In 30 mins of using it I have found zero bugs. Thank you!

Thanks a lot, Max!

The FOV for the character didn't bother me too much but the distance of the camera to the vehicles was very annoying. Much better now!

I hated the default driving fov. Now it's just right.

However, how can I switch the on-foot fov closer to default? Instead of 50%, what values do I change to get it to just increase by 25%?

You can edit the camera_free.xtbl file in any text editor. Right near the top you can find the <name>exterior close</name> section. The Base_FOV value is listed there. The default value is 50, and I changed it to 75. You can change it to 62.5 or whatever you want.

Under the exterior close section there are entries for crouch, sprint, interior close, interior sprint, and interior crouch. All these values are set to 75 in my file. If you edit one of them, you'll probably want to edit the rest to keep things consistent.

Works fine, used throughout majority of the game with no issues

Much easier on the eyes, thanks

Any confirmation if the FOV stays the same if you join OR host a co-op game? Just curious if the effect will turn off on one of those

Repped also, did this same thing for DR2, I do not know why developers don't allow this in options..

used this for a while but it is too much in my opinion, everything is too far away. 25% would be good I reckon, maybe a tad more

You can simply open the file in notepad and change all the values to a different number, also I see nothing wrong with the settings he provided, it's much much better.

Try a different web browser? Sounds like an error only you're getting... Maybe the OP will upload to a different mirror
