    I am running triple 32" sitting 67cm from ctr screen and the screen angles are about 52deg

    I did my setup based on this TUTORIAL: FOV, Triple Screens & Immersion and this is my Triplescreensetting.xml file:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <Reflection>
    <class name="BRTTIRefCount" base="root class" />
    <class name="BPersistent" base="BRTTIRefCount">
    <prop name="Name" type="String" />
    </class>
    <class name="TripleScreenConfigData" base="BPersistent">
    <prop name="Build" type="U32" />
    <prop name="ForceTripleScreen" type="Bool" />
    <prop name="AllowTripleScreen" type="Bool" />
    <prop name="LeftScreen" type="Fct" />
    <prop name="RightScreen" type="Fct" />
    <prop name="CentreScreen" type="Fct" />
    </class>
    <data class="TripleScreenConfigData" id="0x42405880">
    <prop name="Name" data="" />
    <prop name="Build" data="1242" />
    <prop name="ForceTripleScreen" data="false" />
    <prop name="AllowTripleScreen" data="true" />
    <prop name="LeftScreen" physicalHeight="39.500000" physicalWidth="70.000000" bezelLeft="0.500000" bezelRight="0.500000" angleFromForward="50.000000" distanceToEye="70.261353" verticalOffset="0.000000" pixelWidth="2560" pixelHeight="1440" />
    <prop name="RightScreen" physicalHeight="39.500000" physicalWidth="70.000000" bezelLeft="0.500000" bezelRight="0.500000" angleFromForward="50.000000" distanceToEye="70.261353" verticalOffset="0.000000" pixelWidth="2560" pixelHeight="1440" />
    <prop name="CentreScreen" physicalHeight="39.500000" physicalWidth="70.000000" bezelLeft="0.500000" bezelRight="0.500000" angleFromForward="0.000000" distanceToEye="67.000000" verticalOffset="0.000000" pixelWidth="2560" pixelHeight="1440" />
    </data>
    </Reflection>



    To me it just looks like the car has been squeezed

    Maybe just stop looking at FOV Guides and FOV calculators and just set it the way it feels and looks best for you. I have set my FOV once, when I started the game for the first time, and havn't touched it since. I couldn't even tell you my FOV number because I never looked at it. But it looks and feels great in every car I use :p

    Did you calculate for Vertical FOV or Horizontal FOV? S/b horizontal. I got a setting of 62 from my calculation (7680x1440, 32", 67cm).

    Don't worry about what I'm showing here, just look at the fov! It's all mathematically correct and correct height.

    What is a good FOV calculator to use for a single screen user?
