Skyrim FoV = Ugh
I've tried the available fixes, i.e. the console and the .ini tweak, and neither is sticking. Every time I load up the game I have to change the FoV else I get a headache within a very short period of time.
Is there really any way to permanently fix the FoV?

I'm also having this issue. Worst is i keep forgetting about it and after ten minuets of playing I end up thinking "Am i playing Skyrim drunk again??! oh no its just the FOV...." Would love a fix to this.

Curious, fixing it in the .ini file worked here and it stuck after restart. Are you editing the file in your save folder?
" \username\Documents\My Games\Skyrim " or in the install folder? The one you want is the former.
in Skyrim.ini, under the [General] add
fdefaultfov=85 (or any # you like)All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.

I'll try that, DSX. I read to put it under Display (or I thought I did), so I could have just put it in the wrong place. I'll try it in General and report back.

I tried that again DSX, moving it to the right place, saving it and restarting my PC. It looks to have fixed it, so thank you!

I've had the same problem with the "set timescale to X" command resetting, where would I go about putting that in the .ini to make it permanent?

It should stick with the game if you've made a save after entering the command. If you start a new game or load a save where the command has not been entered, it will have the default timesacale value. Type in "show timescale" to check.

@Bristoff, same with Maurish - I just typed it in console, did a save, and it stuck. Beware though, some things that are time dependent (like turning into a vampire for example) may not work in the time they are supposed to - but do eventually complete. My game is set for 1/2 normal so I typed in console

I wonder - would running Steam/Skyrim as administrator help it to stick? Perhaps that's why the FoV thing didn't stick for me.

Are you doing a steam verify files thing where it rewrites everything back to default? Maybe making the change and then setting read-only attribute?All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.
