Your best Skyrim "Awesome pictures"? - Page 167

IRL, I don't always move my head to look at something but rather just move my eyes and objects shapes are not distorted in my peripheral vision. They become blurry but their shape stays normalized.. Raising the FOV doesn't allow this unless looking at stretched objects is ok with you. I think personal preference has the most to do with it instead of a "bit" of it.

In a perfect world yes, but most people not have inspector gadget arms or a desk that is deep enough to adjust for this. Thus the next best tool available to most people is adjusting FOV. Using a 23" monitor and a viewing distance of about 3', I find 75-80 FOV to be good for me, over the vanilla 60, no fisheye lens effect.

I don't have a 30" monitor to test the guy's theory in the video of a FOV of 90-95 at a viewing distance of 2'. I want to assume that he is correct, but who knows...

- Monitor color reproduction
- Monitor calibration
Then you have color interpretation, depth perception, peripheral vision range, response time, ect. biggrin.gif This is why it is so hard for developers to make a game immersive for the great majority of customers. frown.gif

We were discussing specifically FOV settings, not general visual fidelity.

I believe that is the Staff of Corruption quest in Dawnstar.

It is the Skull of Corruption. I toyed around with that bad boy for some time on my first game. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now I'm solely doing archery.

I hate that it's a guaranteed kill when they pick you up ;x though being able to save during battle makes up for it I guess. I kinda wish I couldn't save during battle though.. it would make it a lot more challenging :l

I think the vanilla FOV is 65 isn't it? I'm using 70 with a 24" monitor about 2.5' away. 3.5' if I sit back which I sometimes do because I play with the 360 pad. One thing I need to do is play with FOV adjustment in BF3.

I think they can only get that death strike if your health is low enough. If I'm doing melee, I usually just hack away at their legs so they can't chomp or strike me with their tail. Cool pic.
