<SOLVED> Increase FOV range in Bioshock Infinite

Post by ZeitPolizei »

Running Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon, installed Bioshock Infinite via Steam. The game itself runs fine, but I would like to increase the FOV. Various guides online say to edit an entry in the XUserOptions.ini file. This file doesn't appear to exist. DefaultUserOptions.ini exists and has the entry that is supposed to be edited, but changing it appears to have no effect.

Where are you looking for XUserOptions.ini? I see references to:

.local/share/irrationalgames/bioshockinfinite/GameDocuments/My Games/BioShock Infinite/XGame/Config/XUserOptions.ini

I don't have the game installed on Linux, so I don't know if that's correct.
Distro: (back to) Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa, Kernel: 4.4.0-51-generic x86_64 (64 bit), Desktop: Cinnamon 2.8.8

Ooohhh I feel dumb now. I was going via "Browse Local Files" in Steam, which landed me in .local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Bioshock Infinite.

The location you indicated works out. Thank you!
