May I suggest an fov slider

Post by King MagnaRool »

You can change the fov in the console so it's not a necessary feature, just one for convenience, but it would be nice regardless.

I think FOV in Doom is more or less considered a cheat, and cheats (in most cases, anyway, there are exceptions) generally don't appear on the menu. But this is merely conjecture, not a statement of fact or opinion or a stance.

A slider would be more useful if the FOV setting would persist between game sessions. Since it's a thing that tends to get tweaked based on display configurations (ultrawide monitor users will tend to want wider FOVs for it to look natural, for example), it seems like the sort of thing that'd need attention from a UX point of view.

FOV settings do persist. I made the necessary changes a while ago that makes your FOV saved to the INI.
