DX:IW - Custom Resolutions and FOV changing

Postby James » Thu Apr 14, 11 12:29 am

Deus Ex: Invisible War - Custom screen resolution

  • Go to your My Documents\DeusEx - Invisible War folder
  • Make a backup of the user.ini file and open the original
  • Search for:
      FullscreenViewportY=yyyy
      FullscreenViewportX=xxxx
    Change it to the resolution you desire to use.

Deus Ex: Invisible War - Field of view editing

If you feel that you can't stand the default 4:3 field of view settings then please follow this guide. You will need a hexadecimal editor, please click here to download a freeware program which does the job and does not require an installation.
  • Go to your installation's \system folder
  • Make a backup of the Engine.d2u file, open the original with the hexadecimal editor
  • Search for instances of AA 42 (there should be 3 in total) and replace with the following depending on your ratio:

      16:9 - Change to F0 42 to obtain a FOV of 120

      16:10 - Change to D8 42 to obtain a FOV of 108


Once done save changes to Engine.d2u and see if the game launches correctly with the FOV change.

Awkward game to tweak isn't it.
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Thank you sir. I wish I seen this link, I was using a very bad guide on STEAM forums which was incorrect so I made these threads to make up for it. This seems to be more up to standard. :)

Yes very awkward, was laughing when you had to use a hexadecimal editor.

Yeah. Perhaps somebody more skilled than myself could make a patch, shouldn't be TOO hard I don't think?

Not that this game is particularly popular lol.
