Improve Your View of the Battlefield

Use this hack to alter your field of view.

The Field of View (FoV) is the angle of your perspective in the game. By default, Halo 2 presents a 70-degree FoV. However, using a hex editor [Hack #54] , it is possible to alter this value.

Halo 2 .MAP files store the FoV value in radians—70 radians equals the value 1.221730471. To alter the default FoV value, open up your map file in a hex editor. Search for the number 1.221730471 and replace it with a different value. In this example, you will use 1.6 (i.e., 90 degrees).

Tip

When you use the find feature in the hex editor, you will need to select the float type. The easiest way to change the value is to use the Replace All option (see Figure 10-7). However, if some other value that happened to match the FoV number, it would also be replaced. In other words, be careful with Replace All.
