Why, Volition? Why? Why can't I change my FOV?

For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, FOV stands for Field Of View, which basically means the amount of shit you can see on your screen while playing the game. This mod increases it to work nicely on higher resolution monitors- the camera won't be focused so closely on your character, allowing you to get a much better view.

Just look at the pictures:

To install:

Please report any bugs if you find 'em. Enjoy!

Thanls, SF.. I was just looking at doing this for myself..
Did you change all 375 different FOVs or just freeroam?

I'll check it out.
Always the essential mod.

One minor beef though is that when you stop sprinting the FOV snaps back abruptly. Any way you could increase the sprinting FOV a little so it's not so jarring when you stop? I don't suppose smoothing the transition is a viable option yet.
All of them.
Did you just increase each value by x or set them all the same?

I suppose I could check it with winmerge, but I'm at work right now and can't.
