HOW TO: Fix FOV, Tweak Graphics, and use an Auto-Exec

1. Make an autoexec.cfg in your 'Crysis 2' directory.
You can do this simply by copying one of the already existing *.cfg files in the folder and renaming it.

It should look like "../Crysis 2/autoexec.cfg"


2. Open the autoexec.cfg with your favorite text editor, and clear it out.

3. To fix FOV, you need to add two lines.
-cl_fov <#>
-pl_movement.power_sprint_targetFov <#>

These numbers should match, otherwise your FOV will toggle when you sprint.


4. To tweak graphics more than 3 presets, you may individually fine-tune with the following lines:
-sys_spec_gameeffects <1-3>
-sys_spec_objectdetail <1-3>
-sys_spec_particles <1-3>
-sys_spec_postprocessing <1-3>
-sys_spec_shading <1-3>
-sys_spec_shadows <1-3>
-sys_spec_sound <1-3>
-sys_spec_texture <1-3>
-sys_spec_volumetriceffects <1-3>
-sys_spec_water <1-3>

5. Enjoy!

As a sample, here is my autoexec.cfg:

g_skipintro 1

cl_fov 75
pl_movement.power_sprint_targetFov 75

i_mouse_accel 0

sys_spec_gameeffects 1
sys_spec_objectdetail 3
sys_spec_particles 1
sys_spec_postprocessing 1
sys_spec_shading 1
sys_spec_shadows 1
sys_spec_sound 1
sys_spec_texture 3
sys_spec_volumetriceffects 1
sys_spec_water 1

Nice tips, but you dont need to make an autoexec.cfg

you just need to put the tweaks in system.cfg....

can u even count 30 in 1 second? no, u can't. so u can't tell difference between 30fps and 60fps. stupid. ~ -Shinobier-

If I set my settings to "Extreme" does it make everything 3? And why the hell can't I configure AA and AF?

How do you make crouch holdable?

I just read on the mycrysis forums, autoexec unlocks the commands that were not working before. "like motion blur". Give it a shot.

autoexec worked for me. Nice. Too bad we have to config this manually. What were they thinking? You don't need to dumb it down for pc gamers. Anyways, thanks TC.

r_drawnearfov doesn't seem to stick. keeps reverting back to r_drawnearfov=55 when releading checkpoints and using binoculars .
is there a command i can use to bind "r_drawnearfov=65" to same key that switches weapons (Y on my 360pad)?
