Field of view (FOV)[edit]

This hack requires bypassing the EasyAntiCheat protection; it's recommended to play in offline mode in Steam and Uplay to avoid being banned.

  1. Disable EasyAntiCheat for the game.
  2. Download FC5 Unlock FOV.
  3. Copy Unlock_FOV.exe to <path-to-game>\bin\.
  4. Run Unlock_FOV.exe and apply patch to FC_m64.dll. It's recommended to backup FC_m64.dll before patching.

Disable EasyAntiCheat[edit]

Online functionality might be affected. Play offline to prevent the risk of an account ban.
Also skips the intro videos of the game.

The embedded EasyAntiCheat component of the game prevents unknown third-party tools from injecting themselves in the game. This protection can be disabled, which allows the use of said tools.

Use modified EasyAntiCheat_x64.dll[2]
  1. Download the latest version of the EAC bypass.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\bin and rename EACLaunch.exe to EACLaunch.exe.bak.
  3. Go to <path-to-game>\bin\EasyAntiCheat and rename EasyAntiCheat_x64.dll to EasyAntiCheat_x64.dll.bak.
  4. Extract the downloaded archive to <path-to-game>\bin\EasyAntiCheat.
  5. Third-party stuff will now be able to properly hook or inject into the game.
Disable EAC in FC_m64.dll[3]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\bin\.
  2. Open FC_m64.dll with a hex editor such as HxD.
  3. Find bytes 40 55 53 56 57 41 56 48 8D AC 24 B0 FD FF FF.
  4. Change to B0 01 C3 56 57 41 56 48 8D AC 24 B0 FD FF FF.

Issues unresolved[edit]

DualShock 4 not working[edit]

Controller workaround
  1. If using a DualShock 4 through Bluetooth, the game will not recognise it. A temporary workaround is to connect it straight to your PC through USB.
  2. You can get partial controller support by launching the game through Steam with Steam's XInput emulator however your dpad and left trigger will not work correctly.

Issues resolved[edit]

99% GPU utilization even on low details, low FPS[edit]

Use Reshade and Rinput injectors together
In case of game error of injecting see
In case of FPS drops after using map, disable Reshade (bind the key in injector menu, settings - by default, beginning from 4.x version accessing by "home" key.
Game now suppose to be perfectly playable on low details with 30-37 FPS on C2Q and HD 7870/R9 270.
