Crysis 2 FOV, Mouse Accel & Motion Blur Fix

Please note that this post is over a year old and may contain outdated information.
This is a followup to my post about the Crysis 2 demo fix. "Fixing" some in-game settings can make or break your experience with this game. I recommend looking over these fixes and applying those that you desire before even starting the campaign.

Note that increasing the FOV too much can cause minor graphical anomalies in the game, such as seeing the missing sides of your arms during some in-game scripted motions, or being able to see through surfaces when up against them and looking at the right angle. I have found that these minor glitches are a small price to pay for the higher FOV.

Just like Crysis 1, Crysis 2 supports an autoexec.cfg file. This file, which doesn't exist by default, should be created in your Crysis 2 root folder. Any commands in this file will be automatically executed when the game starts. Here is an example autoexec.cfg file that makes some popular modifications:

Download Autoexec.zip

This stops most of the start-up movies from playing, including the Cryengine 3 and Nvidia movies.

cl_fov, pl_movement.power_sprint_targetFov
These should match each other, and are your field of view settings. You may want to try 80 or 85 and see what you like best. The default is 60 I believe, and feels too confined.

i_mouse_accel=0, i_mouse_smooth=0
These affect your aiming and I prefer to have them both off. If you want to try it with them on, remove the two lines from the file.

cl_zoomToggle=1, cl_crouchtoggle=1
These are just preferences of mine. The default game settings are crouch toggle, hold to zoom. Changing the values to 0 would make it so you have to hold the button to remain zoomed or crouched.

This is motion blur and I find it much easier to aim without it on.

r_UseEdgeAA=0, r_PostMSAA=0
These control anti-aliasing and edge anti-aliasing/blurring. I prefer to turn them off entirely, but if you want to keep them you can remove those lines.

If you don't want to edit the settings like this, you can download the Advanced Graphics Options tool, which generates an autoexec.cfg file for you automatically and gives you even more control over graphics options. I recommend it for those that want to make specific graphics tweaks.
