Call of Duty: Ghosts PC FOV fix taken down following Activision threats
An unofficial Field of View (FOV) fix for Call of Duty: Ghosts provided by the Fovely community has been taken down following the threat of legal action from Activision. The FOV is locked at 65 on PC, which is obviously a bit rubbish, and has created demand for the ability to change it.
The fix only allowed an alteration of the FOV in multiplayer mode, but that was still better than nothing. Where the download link had been, there is now the message “link removed due to a friendly threat from everyone’s favorite publishing firm.” The top of the page has a couple of paragraphs detailing the ongoing legal issues with Activision over hosting unofficial “fix” files like this.
However, if you still want to download the unofficial FOV fix you don’t have to look very far in the same Fovely thread to find it. It is of course a file that you use at your own risk; though it’s worth noting that Infinity Ward have previously stated that they don’t care about people using FOV mods. That should still be the case for Call of Duty: Ghosts but without confirmation it’s hard to be one hundred percent sure. Running unofficial files of this type through some sort of virus checker would probably still be good idea though.
There are also said to be work-arounds ‘out there’ for the hard-lock on the 6GB RAM check.
