    Just loaded quake 4 and started playing some on-line shoot-abouts...

    Now, with Quake 3 Arena I used to play using g_fov = 100 (or was it cg_fov in q3a?) and it feels just a tad better setting my FOV to 100 when playing with sabot dudes on a self-created server.


    Is it considered cheating should I play like that competitively?

    Also, what are you guys and gals favorite value for the Field of Vision (FOV) setting?

    No it's not cheating :) I play Q4 1v1 too :) And I use g_fov 100 too :)
    Look at all the pro's, they all use a higher fov, and it's not considered as cheating :)

    well just look at his Av, is that a face you can trust? and dont forget hes dutch, and you know what they say about the dutch right?

    j/k

    on topic, i suspect im playing at a higher FoV too, since i run widescreen, and IIRC this fov tweaking has been around since the Q2 days, if the community considered it cheating, i doubt Raven would still have put it in Q4 as an accesible option

    Increasing FoV isn't that big deal but when you decrease it (zoom in) it's a problem in some games.

    Excessively high FOV's make aiming much easier in my experience.... that is why was wondering...

    On the dutch... I have family that emigrated to Brussels and as a Afrikaans speaking individual I can follow most dutch dialects with some concentrating! I thought the dutch (in belgium anyway, was only in Amsterdam a few hours so cannot really vouch for the Netherlands) were quite cool so I think they can be trusted!
