#5 How to Adjust FOV in Lost Planet 3
If you aren’t contented with the default FOV value of Lost Planet 3, there is a way to customize it.

  • First, navigate to the config folder location (Documents\My Games\LostPlanetGame\LostPlanetGame\Config\).
  • Now open the file named KeyMappings.INI using notepad.
  • You need to enter the following command line at the end of this file:

=FOV xxx,yyy,,False,False,False,False

XXX are the letters you need to replace with the desired FOV value. yyy stand for the key you will use to activate it.

This customization however, may cause your game to crash so make sure that you make a backup of your original config file before making any changes.

  • Find the line that says: bSmoothFrameRate=True.
  • You need to change the “True” value to False.
  • Save the changes and mark the file to “Read Only” to make it work.
