    I couldn't work out what that one was there for either.

    Just keep going :)

    Yeah, I can get to where he sees me & starts waving, jumping up & down & saying 'over here, over here' but an invisible wall prevents me from getting onto the rocks

    From what I've read, it's just an easter egg - he doesn't actually do anything. Those who have figured out a way to get over to the green Claptrap haven't managed to talk/interact with it in any way.

    Has anyone else had issues getting the field of view to change?

    I've tried editing the ini file as shown in the link of the original post......but I get no difference in game. Tried many different times in a range from 60degrees to 180degrees!! No change in game. :(

    I'm starting to feel sick! :(

    I had the same trouble.

    I had to delete the lines I added to the ini file (just for the fov) then go ingame and reset to default settings. Then go back into the ini and add the fov lines. After that, it worked for me.

    Thanks for the advice, but I think the initial instructions on the Steam forum are actually wrong:
    It instructs you to place the new bindings below [Engine.PlayerInput] whereas someone further down the thread suggests putting them under [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput].
    I tried the second option and it works fine for me now and looks SOOOooooo much better! :)

    I'll have to try this tonight - I haven't had much of a problem with the FOV so far, but an improvement is an improvement :)

    This fix is correct, I followed it and the FOV is now much improved, although running looks a bit silly.

    Makes it look like you're running really really fast...it distorts the actual view. If you recall playing Aliens vs Predator - the view you got when you were an alien running along...same thing.

    I think it looks like looking through a fish eye lens and being on a roller coaster.. shorter distances seem like they are much further away than they actually are.. ending up with me plonking myself right in front of a couple of badasses without actually trying to

    There have been a few additions to the Page MB linked on pg 1...
    Zee do you want to add this to your list on page 2



    To view your FPS (frames per second):

    -----------------------------
    Within WillowInput.ini:

    Search for [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput]. Below the chunk of bindings, add the following:
    Quote:
    Bindings=(Name="F12",Command="stat fps",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTrigg er=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgn oreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
    Hitting F12 will show you a readout for your current FPS. It also displays your ping in MS, but I'm unsure if it is accurate.

    I'm not sure if this has been posted up yet but they've made a pc utility to make an interface for a lot of these settings, here's the thread about it.
