Brief description of how to edit your games config file to gain access to additional options

Posted by on

Operation Flashpoint saves its configuration in an XML file location in My Documents\My Games\OFDR\HardwareSettings\

The important file here is Hardware_Settings_Config.XML. This can be opened in any text editor such as Notepad.

Getting more FOV, or playing in the cinematic mode my videos are in

Unfortunately the FOV in OFDR is fixed and so far, it hasn't been cracked. To work around this, I have added several non-standard aspect ratio's to the game that allow you to get a bit more FOV out of the game than you could before, or, for the ultimate setup, play in Cinematic mode

Available Aspect Ratios : 1.33333, 1.6666, 1.7777, 1.8, 1.9, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.35, 2.4 and 4.8 (triple screen)

At 1920x1080 the correct aspect ratio is 1.6666, however I have found 1.8 or even 1.9 will give a good boost to your FOV without degrading the shape of objects too heavily.

Cinematic Mode simply puts the game into the same resolution and aspect ratio used by the cinema, which is 1920x817 at an aspect ratio of 2.35. This gives a solid aspect correct FOV of about 78 degrees.
If you wish to try this, you can replace your config with this :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<hardware_settings_config version="8">
		<resolution width="1920" height="817" aspect="2.35" fullscreen="false" vsync="0" oldWidth="1920" oldHeight="1080">
			<refreshRate rate="60" />
		<gamma level="0.500000" />
		<msaa type="off" />
	<graphics_detail level="custom" />
	<coverage tolerance="0.500000" />
	<ground_cover lodScale="1.350000" tilesPerLOD="64" />
	<shadows enabled="true" size="2048" maskQuality="2" />
	<bulk_trees tiles="13" />
	<animation quality="2" />
	<particles quality="2" />
	<textures quality="0" filtering="3" anisoLevel="3" />
