How to Fix Widescreen FOV in Games




Widescreen-fixer-thumbThis is a very common issue with gamers having widescreen monitors to play games. Of course it’s more fun to play on widescreen monitors than the usual ones, but the game developers should also understand this.

For example, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the game that broke records of the entire entertainment history in terms of sales, doesn’t support high widescreen resolutions.

Widescreenfixer adjusts the field of view (FOV) for the aspect ratio of your monitor. It works with several new games.

Not adjusting the FOV causes the top and bottom of the screen to be cropped. These games are currently supported:

  • Battlefield 2
  • Battlefield 2142
  • BioShock
  • Call of Duty 2
  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
  • Call of Duty: World at War
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • Darkest of Days Demo
  • SEGA Rally Revo
  • Unreal Tournament
  • Wolfenstein

    Oh YES! Thank you! Wrong FOV is the bane of my existence. I didn't spend $500 on a widescreen monitor and $400 on a graphics card to get LESS image on my screen.

    But WHY. Why why why don't they support it? They're smart people, they could have included it. It seems as though they're just doing it on purpose to piss people off.
