Default Anyway to increase View Distance?

I'm sick of only being able to see about 200-300 yards

Yes. Might be 400-500 yards, but that still ain't very far

Yes, you can increase your view distance dramatically.

The problem is, your system will hog.

I'm running on:

3ghz P4
1gig DDR memory
ATI 9600 pro 256MB

I tried turning view distance to an incredible amount. When I did this, I could see the MEC main base from the US carrier on Gulf of Oman.

The problem is I was getting 4fps on the lowest settings

If you do this, you won't be able to play online because you will get kicked by PB or BF2 won't allow you to join.

It is possible, but would have to be done just for your singleplayer needs or if its done for a mod altogether.

Artnez, although thats true, thats a bit over the top anyway. Make it so you can just see the first outposts on the land or something.

How do you adjust the fog? Its seperate from view distance but I have no idea what to change.

Well, I really hate to refer to something like this, but there are a set of cheats out there, and no, I won't mention where, because cheaters ruin the game, but from screenies I've seen, it allows you to see forever and remove the fog. If people are playing "successfully" (I use that term loosely due to the fact they are cheating) without the fog, and with seemingly infinite view distances, why couldn't it really be increased?

You would be stupid to use those cheats because, like Artnez said, you would have and incredibaly low FPS, even on low settings.

I agree 100%. I don't even see the point in playing a multi player online game if you're not going to do it without cheating. It takes no skill to cheat.

It is awsome on 1942 because you have a huge view distance and i was picking people off with an M1-garand at the range that you use would use a sniper for on BF2because it is the only way to cut through that fog.
