rFov

Version: 001
by: zork [More]


Intro
Small mod to edit the field of view of your character.

How
Dawn found a solution on how to create a viewport that is actual a viewport and no overlay. Ego-shooter gamers know this as fov (field of view).
I took his idea out of oUF_viv and made a standalone mod from it. So props to him for finding this.

What
This mod does the field of view only. To bad it's not possible to give the WorldFrame a negative margin. So this works best for those who actually use a black border at top/bottom.
Nevertheless...do you want to have a Quake-like fov? This is the mod for you.

Config
You will find a small config at the top of rFov.lua where you can edit your top,left,right,bottom and scale values.

You can test your values ingame with:

Code:
/run change_worldframe_setpoints(20,20,0,0,1)


Code:
--function change_worldframe_setpoints(t,b,l,r,s)
--top
--bottom
--left
--right
--scale

I'm curious what you mean by this statement:
Dawn found a solution on how to create a viewport that is actual a viewport and no overlay.
All viewport mods create an "actual" viewport (changing the size/anchor points of the world frame) and don't just make a black box to overlay the screen.

I'm not understanding it entirely. It seems to 'shrink' the field of view and not cut into it like most viewports. Is that the intention?

**Edit: Nevermind, I stared at all the pics again and got a better feel for it's possible uses.**

Not a bad little mod you got here, I might start utilizing it.

Viewport mods (like CT, Sunn, etc) don't "cut into it" though. This was taken a few minutes ago with CT_Viewport, set to as small as the settings allow you to go.

Hence my confusion on the statement in the description.

What exactly does the "scale" option in the lua control?

I recently threw some kind of "guide" together to show what a viewport can do for your interface. For those interested, it's over here.

If my monitor is 1920x1080, and my viewport resolution is 1200x740, does that mean the game acctualy runs in this lower resolution, thus i am gettin more frames per second because of the lower resolution ?

It seems
/run change_worldframe_setpoints(20,20,0,0,1)

does not cut exactly 20 pixels from top and bottom, but it cuts 28.

Any ideeas why ?

Border Color Changes

Seems to be a Dx11 issue.

Brill's inn causes it to become purple. AV starting cave turns it brown. Dalaran Arena is also brown.

Minor really just wondering what may be causing it.
