If you could make it so that key bindings could be easily changed I'd be massively grateful.

That's a hell of a good idea, sounds like a bunch of work, too.

Also, I really dig the way the icon looks on my Desktop. Cool.

thanks m8 for the great tool,

how about adding a "Go" button which starts the game (pointing to bf3.exe) ?

I registered here to say I appreciate this utility. :toast:

Question though, can you explain the FOV function? What's different between this and the FOV function in the game's menu screen? I'm not quite understanding the Horizontal FOV, independent FOV, the calculate vertical FOV. Also, is your program a solution to the locked FOV in Single Player?

Thanks again for the utility, I recommend the next update have a help box or possibly be able to hover over things to get an ALT-TEXTish explanation.
Thanks for Registering here at TPU! The community here is kickass!

Now about the FoV (Field of View), when monitors where only 4:3 the uses of FoV in game wasn't needed, but when wide screen monitors (16:9, and 16:10) came along the need for FoV in game was born (example: a 22" monitor with 1680x1050 is a 16:10 monitor. You can set your 16:10 monitor to out put 16:9, but you will have black lines in the top, and the bottom of your screen). Now back to about the settings I use.. (Sorry this is long, but I don't know any other way to explain it)

In my Utility I'm using the formula Rich aka Rulesy uses for BFBC2 (hFoV = 2 * atan(tan(vFoV/2) * width/height)). Anytime you are allowed to change FOV in a game it's based on the vFoV (Vertical Field of View), but you need a hFoV (Horizontal Field of View) to complete the Formula, which most players use 90, 100, 110 hFoV to complete the formula (I've seen some users that use 16:9 use 120 hFoV). You can go over to WSGF (widescreengamingforum) and get great help with FoV. I've found that most users use 110 hFoV, but lately i've seen a lot of people just tell everyone to use 90 vFoV and to do that you would need to use 115.5 hFoV.. and I say that's incorrect, but I guess it's not enough difference to the eye from 84 vFoV to the users. I hope that helps and wasn't confusing.. :toast:

Oh, and i plain to add call outs to each setting to help the player understand what the setting does. :toast:


If you could make it so that key bindings could be easily changed I'd be massively grateful.
I'm working on that now! :toast:

That's a hell of a good idea, sounds like a bunch of work, too.

Thanks! I was worried that players with think the icon was to busy. :toast:

Thanks that's a great idea i'll try and add that on the next build. :toast:

New! BF3 Config Utility v1.3

Change Log v1.3
  1. New 5.1 setting!
  2. Added call outs to settings.
  3. Changed both Profile config and Config File display text to richtext format. Now you can see the settings easier. I plain to turn the Config File Text display into a Real Text Editor, and not just a crappy notepad viewer. This new display will send the return carriage, and not show it.
  4. New screen shots of the General Tab and Config File tab have been added to the OP.

Version v1.2 got 233 downloads! :toast: Thanks everyone! :toast:

As you are working on key bindings is it at all possible to make our HAT buttons work on the joystick without having to press another button for free look mode?

Kinda need:

Freelook + HAT UP
Freelook + HAT DOWN
Freelook + HAT LEFT
Freelook + HAT RIGHT

binded together if you know what I mean?

Thanks for the great tool!

About time you showed up! :p :toast:

@everybody
I'll have a new update tomorrow! I've added, "Mouse Sensitivity" and will be in the next update. :toast: I want to add a few more things before I release it. I thought about just releasing a new update tonight, but I don't know if it's a big enough change to put out an update?.. So, I'd like to know what you all think? Would everyone like for me to put it out big or small? or Just wait till I add a few things then release it?

One more question? What do you guys think about me adding something to check if I've put an update out? Like an auto check when you start the program or a button for you to click that will check whenever you want to see if one is out? Let me know gamers! All suggestions are welcome! Thanks for supporting this project! :toast:

I, too, registered here just to say thanks.

I also have a request for you. Can you post a donations link, if it's OK with this forum, so we can donate to you for creating a utility that helps out the community this much?

You are updating this thing enough to where I would like to shoot you 10 bucks from our clan as a thank you.

Now my alterior motive:

#1. Is it possible that you can allow additions to the config tab instead of ONLY the settings currently in our configs? I tried adding lines and hitting save but then the config tab removed those lines and went back to what it was before. I'm not sure it saved... but I think it just removed them.

#2. I think adding binds to actions would be fantastic as well.

#3. Thanks again for the handy-dandy utility. You did a wonderful job and I hope you keep making it better.

I, too, registered here just to say thanks.

I also have a request for you. Can you post a donations link, if it's OK with this forum, so we can donate to you for creating a utility that helps out the community this much?

You are updating this thing enough to where I would like to shoot you 10 bucks from our clan as a thank you.

Now my alterior motive:

#1. Is it possible that you can allow additions to the config tab instead of ONLY the settings currently in our configs? I tried adding lines and hitting save but then the config tab removed those lines and went back to what it was before. I'm not sure it saved... but I think it just removed them.

#2. I think adding binds to actions would be fantastic as well.

#3. Thanks again for the handy-dandy utility. You did a wonderful job and I hope you keep making it better.

Thanks! I think donations would be great. I could use that to make the config utility better (like hosting for a auto-update or update alert function). Now about the config tab. Yes, right now you can't make changes directly in that tab, but I am working to make that tab a text editor to allow those changes. Hopefully i'll be able to add that to an update soon. Thanks for the support! :toast:

Like that other guy, I too have registered just to say thanks a million for this, it sounds and looks awesome and I shall definitely be trying this out when I get home from work.
It is exactly what I need, as my game crashes if I click on the video tab...up until now I haven't even seen what my settings are, let alone change them.
I like the sound of a keybind config too, as parts of the original one are broken, mainly binding gamepads.
Awesome job!

p.s. an auto update would be a great addition too.

Hey guys, I linked this up over on Reddit. So prepare for an influx of downloads.
It's also linked over on HardForum.

Thanks for the awesome program, Mindweaver.

I had a concern, the changelog says "Now when you disable Anti-aliasing will auto disable "Anti-aliasing Post".
There should definitely be an option to set Deffered and Post AA separately, just like you can in-game.

Thanks WhiteZero! More suggestions and testing would be great from others.

Now about your concern. I was hesitant to make that change. I guess, i was trying to help the gamer. I figured if you where disabling AA then you would disable AA post. Does AA Post do anything once you've disabled AA? I don't really know myself.. I can open that up on next update. That wouldn't be a problem. :toast:

Yes, Post AA is Post-Processing AA, such as nVidia's FXAA or AMD's MLAA (I'm not sure if BF3 is using one or the either or both)

Personally, I've found that turning off Deferred AA and only using Post AA provides excellent image quality with a lower performance hit than normal AA (Deferred AA in BF3).

Awesome! Thanks for the info! I'll correct this issue on the next build! I should have one up tonight. Thanks again! :toast:
