This function sets the field of view of the dynamic camera - this is the field of view of the non-fixed camera - yes, the camera that the user can control whilst on foot or in a vehicle. The higher the field of view angle, the more you will be able to see to your sides.

[[{{{image}}}|link=|]] Note: setCameraFieldOfView overrides the user game option in Settings->Video->FOV
[[{{{image}}}|link=|]] Note: setCameraFieldOfView does not affect the FOV for the following camera modes: 1) Player aiming 2) Vehicle front bumper camera 3) Fixed camera


bool setCameraFieldOfView ( string cameraMode, float fieldOfView )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: Camera.setFieldOfView(...)
Counterpart: getCameraFieldOfView

Note: after 100, some unexpected things may happen to the camera, particularly in vehicles, use carefully!

    • "player": whilst walking/running
    • "vehicle": whilst in vehicle
    • "vehicle_max": the max the field of view can go to when the vehicle is moving at a high speed (must be higher than "vehicle")
