PostSubject: What FOV you are using ?   Mon Jan 28, 2013 1:41 am

I'm ill so i have planty of time to read forums Wink
I read tons of articles about correct FOV. I was running around 80-90 and lower it to 65. Just like Juho once said it's easier to nail brake point, turn in... But in the race conditions i have hard times to drive in crowd :S I have 36" TV around 65 cm away from my head. iRacing suggest that i should use 55 if i remember correctly but with soo low FOV maybe i can drive, but not race Smile

I'm running 45 fov, because the calculator gives me that value. I also have hard time when racing in a pack and I would like to get a 3-monitor system to give me bigger fov. Smile

But running with calculated fov there are so many advantages because everything looks like they would when driving a real car. You just have a smaller window to it. For me the advantages > disadvantages so I run with the calculated value. I don't blame anyone for running a bigger fov when racing with one monitor though. Smile

By the way, I'm writing my master's thesis about the field of view in racing simulators, I'll tell you the results of my study when it's done!

Yeah, triple monitors will solved that easily for me too, but i don't have enough free space to mount 3 monitors. Also i'm a little worried what kind of PC monster do i need to have normal FPS with 3 monitors if i found free space after all. Some says you need SLI or Crossfire to have good FPS with 3 monitors.

I'm very interested what will you found out in your master's thesis. Maybe you will convince me to go triple after all Wink
