*********************************************
EDIT
*updated directions*

I changed the two keybinds to be out of the way now. Both binds should work 100% as intended now no issues. I set the "end" key for 100 FOV and right above it the "home" key to default back to 60 if you wish to compare.



Change your FOV seriously. It helps you see much more of the environment and much more behind you. It also gives you higher FPS!

Note: I kept the camera in the exact same spot. I did not move it at all or change the zoom

60 FOV

100 FOV

No changing your FOV is not illegal

How da fook do I do this?

Navigate to C:\Users\Public\Games\TERA\Client\S1Game\Config or where ever you installed it.

open up the file "S1Input.ini"

underneath the line "bEnableMouseSmoothing=true add the line below. Make sure it's on its own line.

Bindings=(Name="end",Command="fov 100")
and
Bindings=(Name="home",Command="fov 60")

make sure there is no ; at the start of the line like there are with the lines under it.

and save. After that you should right click on the S1Input.ini go to properties and check the box read-only and hit ok

When you're in game, pressing "end" will change the fov to your desired value.
Pressing "home" will change the fov back to default.

An attempt to kind of retard proof it for people.




Still don't understand? Ill try to make this as simple as possible then

Download the .ini file
https://rapidshare.com/files/2807938969/S1Input.ini

and simply put it here
C:\Users\Public\Games\TERA\Client\S1Game\Config

Move and Replace. Launch the game and when you can actually play your character just hit the "end" key

Default. Can't see the environment above me or much


Moded FOV..... I can see way more and I am still close to my character and not "Far away"

Hey, thanks. I applied the changes myself but it's nice that someone went through the trouble to explain it for everyone.
Wish I could +rep you.

Thanks mate, awesome suggestion.

I put two lines in my S1Input file so that I could change between the FOV in game:

Bindings=(Name="x",Command="fov 100")
Bindings=(Name="c",Command="fov 60")

Works like a treat.

Hey I downloaded your file and replaced it. I pressed X in game once and it worked, the difference is amazing. I seen another line of code in there that seemed like you needed to press \ to return it back to 60? When I do press that nothing is happening, also pressing x multiple times does nothing as well.

Is this working as intended?


No, it wasn't working as intended. I had a small error on the line to return it back to 60. I fixed it you can redownload the file and hit X to change the FOV to 100 and \ to change it back to 60 to compare


You only need to hit X once hitting it multiple times won't change anything unless you hit the \ to change the FOV again back to default. I fixed it now.

Awesome. Now my only concern is getting banned for some reason editing my game files. One of my friends told me about this, is this true?

"Just for the sake of clarification, you won't get banned for changing a line in a .ini file"

Just so people are aware, when you do this your server selection screen will end up with a weird bordered box and when flying on Pegasus, the background is not rendered correctly. This may cause other issues, but those are the only things I have noticed and it has been an issue since K-TERA.

Sometimes the close up view if you have smaller screen. I would suggest this option only if you have a nice sized screen, 23"+. Otherwise you'll just feel to far from your character. The designers of Tera have the FOV set like that for a reason and it is that the current FOV will feel right for just about any player.
