Call of Juarez: Gunslinger patch adds FOV fix

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger patch adds FOV fixCall of Juarez Gunslinger

Call of Juarez Gunslinger

was the latest in a string of titles to release on PC with a narrow default Field of View (FOV) and no option to alter it. This was causing some players to suffer from motion sickness, and others to suffer from aesthetic sickness.

All credit to Techland, then, for pushing out a patch that allows players to change the default FOV and remove the (previously mandatory) black borders that surround the in-game screen at all times.

Applying them is a bit complication, but it seems like you need to find a “video.scr” file, most likely at the following location – c:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\techland\cojgunslinger\out\Settings\ Open it up in notepad and add the following options at the bottom:

ForcedHorzFov(95) – you can choose values between 80 and 110
DisableScreenBorder() – don’t bother with this one unless you want to remove the borders, obviously

Update 1.01 should apply itself to Gunslinger through Steam and makes the following changes:

Changes:
– hit indicator is now disabled in True West difficulty mode
– new option to disable crosshair regardless of the difficulty mode
– new option to adjust mouse sensitivity on duels
– new settings available in video.scr file
– additional checks before posting scores to the leaderboards
– additional credits

Fixes:
– fixed problems with audio on 7.1 output configurations
– fixed crashes related to using 7.1 audio configurations
– fixed potential crash when using long Steam nicknames with non-latin characters
– leaderboards now correctly display nicks with non-latin characters
– patched up heavy stuttering when using certain keyboard and mouse models
– workaround for blocks when booting the game on systems that have problems with video playback
– tweaked enemy behavior on duels to avoid duels with no conclusion
– fixed HUD gadget in Arcade mode sometimes not displaying “versus” friend’s name
– fixed navigation and centering in My Score and Friends leaderboards
– tweaks and fixes in the Japanese localization
