In my game the stuff near the edges are being stretched. I don''t want this to happen. What might be causeing this. I think it''s something to do with my perspective calculations.

stab in the dark: your fov is ridiculously large and now you get the usual fish eye effect

##### Share on other sites
hmm possibly what should the fov be?

##### Share on other sites
Use a fov of 45.f

That''s the fov on how humans percieve the world.

I actually think it''s more like 35.0f for humans, but the 45.0 is working well enough for me.

Actually a human eye has a FOV of about 120, but you''re usually only paying attention to stuff near the center. A FOV of 90 usually works well for first person games.

I was meaning horizontal, but I assume the other numbers were angle from center of view to edge (and therefore half the size), whereas I usually assume FOV to be the entire angle visible.
