Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Use DLL injection with Cheat Engine[citation needed]
  1. Download Hattiwatti's DLL - works with patch 1.2[5] (exe v1.75.0.7) and patch 1.3 (exe v1.75.0.12).
  2. Download and install Cheat Engine.
  3. Once you have started the game, use the button at the left top in the Cheat Engine window to open the process selector and choose "Dishonored2.exe".
  4. Open the "Memory View" window with the button on the left.
  5. Select "Inject DLL" in the menu "Tools", then select the DLL file you unpacked from the ZIP. Confirm "Execute?" with yes.
  6. You can close Cheat Engine. Mind that you have to inject the DLL whenever you run the game, if you want the FOV features.
  7. In the game, use PageUp and PageDown to change the FOV. You can also press Home to toggle HUD objective locators without having to go through the menus.
