High On Life | How to Change FOV
It’s quite common for games in this day in age to offer a range of accessibility options. The more there are, the better the players can accommodate the game’s setting’s to their preference for the best experience possible. FOV scaling may seem like a standard setting for many games, but it’s not one of the options included in High On Life. Instead, Squanch Games locked their first title at 70 FOV. So, if you want to change the FOV in High On Life, you’ll have to go the extra mile. Here’s what you need to do.
How to Change FOV in High On Life
To change the FOV in High On Life, you’ll need to download Universal Unreal Unlocker (UUU). Unfortunately, this software is only available on PC, which means you can’t change the FOV on High On Life on Xbox. Once you’ve downloaded the software, open it and navigate to the general tab to select High On Life. Select the game and inject the DLL. You will then see a message appear on the top left corner of your screen saying the game is unlocked.
Now you can start High On Life and once in the game press the “~” key to open the console. You’ll see a small chat window at the bottom of your screen. Here you can type “fov##” to change it to your desired FOV, such as “fov90” or “fov120” for example. Unfortunately, the game will notice its locked settings are changing and will revert back to the normal FOV after some time. So, now we need lock in your new FOV.
To do that, you need to download Cheat Engine. If you’ve never used Cheat Engine before, make sure you only launch it with single-player games. As you could get flagged in multiplayer games for potentially “cheating”, which we obviously don’t advocate. Once you’ve downloaded Cheat Engine, go ahead and open High On Life. Now, Alt+Tab out and go to your Cheat Engine software. Go to the process list and select “Oregon-WinGDK-Shipping.exe” and “Open”.
Now under the “Memory Scan Options” uncheck “Writable” and check off “Executable”. Next, you’ll want to change the Scan Type option to “Search For This Array” and the Value Type to “Array of Byte”. Now, copy and paste this code into the Array of Byte search box: “CC CC CC CC CC CC CC CC CC F3 0F 11 89 3C 02 00 00 C3 CC CC CC CC CC CC CC”. Click “First Scan” and double-click the text that appears in the window to the left.
Now double-click the value selection that pops up in the bottom window. A pop-up window will appear and ask what value you what to change it to, paste this: “CC CC CC CC CC CC CC CC CC 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 C3 CC CC CC CC CC CC CC” and select Okay. Now, when you load High On Life and type in your desired FOV using the “~” command it will stay locked.
You’ll have to do this process every time you load the game. However, if it means you can enjoy High On Life without getting motion sickness then it’s definitely worth it!
