By default Day Z has a pretty narrow field of view that is not simple to change. However wildcard_ over at reddit has posted a good guide on how to increase your FOV.

**1)** Go to My Documents/ArmA 2/ and open up USERNAME.ArmA2OAProfile in notepad. Scroll to the very bottom and you’ll see two values, fovTop and fovLeft.

**2)** Calculate what vertical FoV corresponds to your desired horizontal FoV using this calculator. Make sure the “resolution” information is correct!

**3)** Take that number, go to Google, and search “X degrees in radians” to convert it. It should be a small number, between .5 and 1.5 in all likelihood. Round it off at the hundredths – I hear ArmA will chop off any digits after that anyway.

**4)** Enter that value as fovTop in notepad.

**5)** Using a calculator, divide that number by the second number in your aspect ratio – in my case, 16:10, so I divide it by 10. Then multiply it by the first number, in my case 16. Now enter that number for fovLeft, and round it the same way (leaving only 2 digits after the decimal point).

For the lazy people here are some values you can just copy paste.

#### 1920 x 1080 at 90 FOV =

fovTop=1.03;

fovLeft=1.83;

#### 1680 x 1050 at 90 FOV =

fovTop=1.13;

fovLeft=1.80;

**2560×1600 at 90 FOV =**

fovTop=1.13;

fovLeft=1.76;

Thanks to wildcard_ for the guide. Thanks also to munkey505 and LeFunkwagen for the values.
