If you press your ESC key or the cancel button in video settings your FOV will be reset to the default values of fovTop & fovLeft until you restart your game
- Operating System
- Windows 10 x64
- Game Settings
Edit the values of fovTop & fovLeft in the file: Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\(INSERT PROFILE HERE)\(INSERT PROFILE HERE).Arma3Profile
Go ingame and open your pause/esc menu, configure -> video and press cancel or your ESC key.. your FOV will now be back to the default values
Changing your Arma3Profile to read-only will not prevent this from happening.
When they get reverted back it changes in your Arma3Profile too.
This is not minor issue, im struggling with this for 2 days now.
There was option before 1920*1080 16:9 WIDE, but WIDE not anymore.
So my FOV value changes, it should be fovLeft=1.3333334 but is always returning to default
My screen looks stretched and cant play anymore.
Cant LOCK FOV value
This also makes the normal compass impossible to read the bearing numbers on 2560x1440 resolution. It's like I have 6 inches of black space on either side. Can't change in Layout section even.
Geez, you guys at Bohemia really have a passion for creating issues out of thin air.
If you want to remove the Aspect Ratio option, fine, but give us a proper damn FoV option already, or at least don't reset the values. The Arma3Profile values tied to Aspect Ratio are most commonly used to adjust the FoV; nobody cares about the actual "aspect ratio" thing. We just want a custom FoV that is worthy of the PC Master Race, not your dirty peasant default FoV of 70.
Just look at the stupid shit that people had to come up with: http://hia3.com/tools/ArmA_3_wide-angle_FOV_calculator_online_by_Hi,A3.htm
