Some say it works, but so far I had no luck with it.

My friend Ape wrote a nice small tutorial for all those people who want to have FOV and cheats in singleplayer game.

Update: You need to do these changes each time you run the game since .cfg is reset. I will fix this today by writing a loader.

Update #2: Thanks epidema for pointing out that FOV doesn’t work unless you add set sv_cheats “1″.

Browse to your MW2/players/ directory

Note that it’s not MW2\players for all people. Search config.cfg in your c:\documents and settings folder, and you should find the config file.

Open config.cfg in wordpad and add the following lines:

set developer "1"
set sv_cheats "1"
set thereisacow "1337"
bind M "cg_fov 90"

Once ingame press M to increase your FOV.

Optionally, if you don’t want to have to remember to press M to set your FOV, locate the line ‘bind W “+forward”‘ and change it to:
bind W “+forward;cg_fov 90″
This will set your fov automatically as soon as you walk in each level.

Changing FOV in config_mp.cfg is untested, but it may work (no idea if this is detected by VAC).

If you would like cheats, also add:

bind O “god”
bind P “ufo”
bind N “notarget”
bind J “jump_height 150″
bind K “give all”
bind L “give ammo”

I get motion sickness with games with FOV's lower than 90. I got motion sickness in half life 2, fallout 3 and bioshock. Thankfully I solved the problem in all of them.

If the same happens with MW2 this may be handy.
