Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Default FOV is locked at 60° for multi-monitor resolutions and when using ladders. Follow the steps below to fix.
This hack requires bypassing the EasyAntiCheat protection; it's recommended to play in offline mode in Steam and Uplay to avoid being banned.

  1. Download FC5 Unlock FOV v4.7z.
  2. Replace EasyAntiCheat_x64.dll in <path-to-game>\bin\EasyAntiCheat\ with the downloaded one.
  3. Rename EACLaunch.exe to 123.exe in <path-to-game>\bin\.
  4. Copy Unlock_FOV.exe to <path-to-game>\bin\.
  5. Run Unlock_FOV.exe and apply patch to FC_m64.dll. It's recommended to backup FC_m64.dll before patching.
  6. Run the game and setup your desired FOV in the game menu.

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.

Launch the game without EAC[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.
