Forums - PC Discussion - Black Ops II FoV locked @ 80...and more

Tagged games:

 

 

Remember Treyarch’s promises about an unlocked FOV for Black Ops 2 and unlimited FPS? Well, it seems that won’t be the case as Treyarch’s PC Community Manager has just revealed that the max FOV will be 80 and there won’t be any option to further raise it. According to the CM, Treyarch experienced technical issues and that’s why they could not offer a higher FOV. Guess the move to the DX11 renderer was not as ideal as they were hoping to, right? It’s also ironic that Treyarch talks about technical limitations, as it’s proven that a FOV change can be easily achieved even by third-party, fan made tools. 

 

Treyarch’s Community Manager has also revealed that there will be an FPS cap (probably of 120) on ranked dedicated server matches. This comes as a shock, as Treyarch had previously stated that the PC version would not be plagued by such a thing.

 

PC gamers told Treyarch’s Community Manager that a cap of a 120fps cound introduce tearing to the game, who then said that gamers with an 120Hz monitor should ‘set vsync on and run at exactly 120Hz with no tearing‘. However, and as we all know, vsync introduces input lag.

 

Treyarch’s Community Manager responded to that issue and said:

 

 

“You have to choose what to QQ about. Input lag, server lag, tearing, or FPS, or you can make some reasonable concessions and solve some problems for everyone in the game.”
So there you have it everyone. FOV cap, FPS lock on ranked dedicated server matches, and a possible input lag due to Vsync. Lovely stuff, right?
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is currently planned for a November 13th release on PC, X360 and PS3!

Once you can tweak the FoV, you never look back (especially if it was initially promised). Treyarch is about to let a lot of folks down!



                                                                                                                                                           

Breaking news: PC gamers getting screwed by developers.
In other news, the sky is blue, and the sun came up this morning.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Not really news. Just letting those who didn't know, know. ;)



                                                                                                                                                           

FoV = 80 is pretty high I thought. I think I only have BF3 at 75 or so

Yeah that isn't too bad. I didn't expect this game to allow FOV changing anyways...

Eh, I prefer at least 90. Console games are locked at 75, so 80 doesn't really feel like a major step up. Hard Reset made me a believeer in 90+

Or maybe I'm just expecting too damn much!

I know, just being a smartarse. ;)

I'm not a PC gamer myself, (I played a little COD1 on my PC back in my first year of university, and some educational games as a kid, but that's about it) but from what I hear from friends who are, PC gamers very often get the short end of the stick.

I have BL2 at 110 and I really don't want to go back.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.
