Infinity Ward has announced that they are working on adding a FOV changer for the PC version of Call of Duty: Ghosts. Many fans have been asking for this due to the FOV currently being locked. Up until now, fans have been using a 3rd party software to change the FOV, but Infinity Ward stated today that all 3rd party software users will be banned.

FOV Changer for PC: Don’t have an exact ETA, but we’re working to get this in.

    • best thing is that they will ban whoever uses a 3rd party software to changing the FOV while still they havent released anything 1st party for it. we are getting banned for using a basic feature on a FPS game. facking amazing IW, you just lost all credibility for me. fucking amateur morons of a developer.

      • “They”, no, VAC will, because it doesn’t give a shit about how beneficial your third party program will be, it will hammer you no matter if you’re using just a FOV changer or a hacking program.

        VAC doesn’t discern programs from one another anymore. Either that or MW3’s FOV changer worked differently, because this one directly intervenes with the game, and VAC hammers anyone using a program that intervenes with the game no matter what.

        • yes, that VAC shit too. it was good once upon a time but it has fallen short to other features that have progressed through time when VAC is still stuck back to 1999.

          • I think the MW3 one was okay because it just added a cg_fov command to the config_mp.cfg. On Ghosts, this command doesn’t work so it has to be running and directly interferes with the game itself. Which on VAC’s eyes is unnaceptable.

            Think of VAC as that brutal but effective policeman.

  2. I hope they work on it FASTER. I am going back to Black Ops II until an FOV is available. 65 FOV is too flat for me and causes a motion sickness feeling. They might want to add the FOV option to the game BEFORE they ban you for something they previously approved.

      • Actually, IT IS VERY SIMPLE. When it’s in the game, VAC won’t do anything against it. They just have to put a slider that increases the “numbers” and when you hit Apply, it changes the FoV on the console. It is probably one of the easiest things to do. If the slider is at 85 FoV, when you hit Apply, the game introduces the command “cg_fov 85” on the console. BOOM, done. It’s not rocket science.

        • Actually, I was talking about the people who used 3rd party programs to change FOV. But the banning thing is out of their hands, because VAC loves to give you the banhammer for using just about everything that doesn’t come from the game itself.

          • Of course. VAC just sees that there is a 3rd party program making the game change (FoV) probably every second, since you notice that when you respawn, you have the default FoV and then the program changes, and since the program doesn’t know if you die or not, it probably is entering the “cg_fov …” command in the console. But IW said that there won’t be any bans for using the Ghosts FoV Changer (not fovely)

  3. how long does it take them to implement one of the most basic features. I don’t see how it would take them longer than 5 minutes. but i digress since i havn’t bought a cod since bo

    • The big difference is in actual gameplay. FOV changes a lot when playing, have you ever played BO2 zombies on PC then tried to play PS3/360? It screws you up, lol.

      • I don’t really see any differences, but I’d like my FoV to go at least 90, only because it makes the character you are more accessible to see your arms clearly, not that fat 65 FoV look up on your face which is a lock on consoles. This the also the reasons why I like to play CoD on PC, but sometimes it has issues…

      • No it doesn’t. The HUD is a “picture” or an “effect” on top of your game. It will always stay there, no matter what. You could have an FoV of 200+, the HUD would stay “intact”.

  4. 3rd party users will be banned???Didn’t an IW employee while asked from twitter that we can use the “Agent-somethiing” FOV??? (Don’t remember the name).I thought it was confirmed that we could use this particular FOV changer??? Damn I’ll never get an IW game game again…so many issues…no fov slider until now…terrible performance even on high end PC’s, no sound adjustments,no fps showing…the list goes on….

    • VAC was just enabled now on Ghosts PC, and they probably didn’t knew that the new version of VAC wouldn’t discern programs from one another. That’s something you should blame Valve for, not IW.

    • There are but only on a few matches. To know if you’re on one, once you connect, check if the timer starts from 40+ seconds.

      • So if u see the timer start at 40 and then the timer goes to like the 15 second mark out of nowhere then that means ur in a dedicated server lobby?

  5. Simple….I just submitted a ticket to cancel my Season Pass and looking for a refund before the maps are released. This game is broken and just getting worse. According to Steam and Activision support, if you ask for a refund BEFORE the game is launched, you are entitled to a refund, and since the map pack for PC has not been released, you qualify. I don’t know about the rest of you, but a ton of refunds might just sway their thinking…

  6. Hey CI, Tina tweeted that the Riot shield and C4 is FINALLY gonna get nerfed.

    You guys have any extra info about that?… 🙂

  7. What is worse every month I am listing all the blatant hackers and then Emailing them to Activision Support and non of them have been banned but I have to stop using the FOV which makes the game playable or get banned, crazy isn’t it !!! Not whining about good players as many I have reported were on same side as myself and made no attempt to hide the various cheats and for some reason they are so thick they think you can’t find their Steam URL because they are using name changers. Something has to drastically change or this will sadly be the last MW/BO game I buy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Losing PC players? Implementing a feature which should be already in MW2? Wow I don’t know why they are still wasting money developing their games on pc. I would be smarter to pump even more paid DLC for xbox and playstation users.
