Palworld Player Figures Out Method To Unofficially Fix FOV For Ultrawide Monitors

Following four easy steps can allow for a much wider horizontal view.

Story Highlights

  • A Palworld player has discovered the method to fix FOV for ultrawide monitors unofficially.
  • The setup only needs four easy steps and some tinkering with the title to make the process work nicely.
  • The fix finally lets users with ultrawide monitors have a much larger view of in-game surroundings.

Palworld is booming with a large number of players with a community spanning across platforms. Players using ultrawide monitors are in a bit of a pickle, however. The title apparently scales with the verticle FOV on ultrawide monitors, making the overall in-game FOV look quite narrow and clumsy. But, the Redditor u/SirTytan has worked out a fix for the issue that causes the title to appear more natural and pleasing to the eyes.

Steps For Fixing Ultrawide FOV

First, you need to enter “%LocalAppData%\Pal\Saved\Config\Windows\Engine.ini” after opening the “Run” window by pressing the Windows + R keys. This is the location of the config file for Palworld. For GamePass users, it is expected to be at “AppData\Local\Pal\Saved\Config\WinGDK.” After opening the config file, add “[/script/engine.localplayer] AspectRatioAxisConstraint=AspectRatio_MaintainYFOV” at the bottom.

SirTytan explains that players need to set the file to read-only in the properties of Engine.ini after saving so that Palworld does not try to revert the settings again. It is also advised to relaunch the game two times after making the edit. The in-game FOV slider does not increase the horizontal view, so the community has thanked the player for figuring out a much-needed solution.

Meanwhile, others in the scene are busy figuring out the wildest bugs in the action-adventure title, like glitching the water using a Pal to build underwater bases.
