    field of view is what allows you to see more around you

    render ahead limit is frames rendered ahead it can offer smoother visuals in terms of frame rate but its the gpus guessing so i set frames render ahead to 0 to give me a better hit detection

    Render Ahead Limit

    it depends on the persons PC and there settings for some its helpful to change it for others its not but it can give a performance boost or fix sluggishness etc

    I already have the number Im just not sure if the degree of 90 is a good number or not. You know how you have to input the desired horizontal FOV. Well, it is set at 90. I am not sure if it is good or not as it is default.

    Whats good is all how you see it. I personally enjoy 85 on 16:9, any higher than that and I see fish bowling. If you aren't noticing fish bowling, keep pushing the number up till your heart is content.

    I personally suggest getting the tweaking tool I got in the OP. It allows you to do these things without entering the ini (which isn't that complicated). But it also allows you to do things you can't do in the ini, like set your mouse movement speed for vehicles, flying, and on foot all to different values. Without this mod tool, I would be lost, I got sick of adjusting my mouse DPI when using vehicles.

    I had one up almost 6 months ago but only a few played on it. I closed it down after a month as there was not enough traffic on it. When BF3 goes up, I will get one for BF3 though. I'll rent it for a year probably.

    I thought it was farther back than that, I know yours was the most recent, but even that I thought was up around sept of 2010.

    eh, I could be wrong. It was a while ago. If I knew there a lot of people who would play between now and BF3 beta, I would rent for a month or so.
