Dead Island Discussion
There have been people claiming to have a FOV fix that involves hex editing some *.dll files which is a big no-no for VAC, which can result in you being banned, there is a much easier way to edit the CameraDefaultFOV cvar located in Data0.pak/Data/Skills/default_levels.xml
To do so, simply extract the file, locate your Dead Island folder in your user's documents folder, where your audio and video settings are already saved, and create a "Data" folder, a "Skills" subfolder, and place the default_levels.xml in the skills sub folder. Open the file, edit away.

To be clear, your DeadIsland folder should have this structure:
The file that you extract has many other useful things like inventory size, stamina, health, weapon dmg etc. Looks very interesting
Ive managed to edit my skill for logan, higher chance of finding better loot, no durabiltiy loss, no stamina loss, higher chance of retrieving thwon weapons. Theres lots of stuff to do. You can even increase the chance certain items will drop in certain areas

I think I figured it out, it does not change the tooltip in game though right? Thanks for the small FAQ. Small but spot on great!

Since I cant start my game anymore.
Edit: Yeah, I don't know what to edit I guess, since all it does is break my game.

Edit2: It breaks still even if i reset the values back to the original.

Edit: Yes, it does work.
