Far Cry 3 Field of View Problem - Please Help!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
When I'm playing Far Cry 3, it seems like everything is squished together when I play at 1920x1080. For example, the characters and my gun are all very very skinny. It makes aiming and gameplay in general very frustrating. I don't know what can be causing this, as I've installed the latest drivers and tried messing with the field of view in the options. It looks great at 5760x1080 but the fps are too low for me to enjoy. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know!!!

Thanks!

It seems like there is a fish-eye effect on everything that I'm seeing. Any thoughts?

I had the same problem. First try setting your FOV to 80. The second and more important question is do you use a triple monitor setup? If so are you trying to play it on one screen? If the answer to this is no then as I said, go into options video options and set FOV to about 80 +/-

I'm running a triple monitor set up, trying to just play on one screen too. Does anyone know how to fix this? It seems to squishing what it would show on all three screens into one.

It looks like it's still picking up a triple display setup, and stretching the image out to fit three screens, while displaying on one.
