Field of View[edit]

I added the new FOV setting to the table, but I'm wondering what the values 70 to 110 actually mean. I can't be the only one, so it'd be useful to have the information on this page. Could someone provide an explanation, either here or in the article? LTK 70 20:43, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

The number in the field of view slider obviously means the angle from the left hand side of the screen to the right. So 70 means I would have a view of 70 degrees in front of me (35 degrees either side of where I am facing) while a field of view of 360 would mean I would be able to see every direction around me (the whole screen would "loop" around and it would look rather trippy) --HexZyle 21:51, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Ah, of course. I should have thought of that, really. Added a ° to the article. LTK 70 15:42, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Sprinting adds 20. Flying adds 10 or 20 (I'm not sure which). Potions of speed add some and swimming decreases it. I have also heard that if you take a hacked high level speed potion, your view will be upside-down (probably because the FOV is over 180). Should there be a Field of View article?

I'd love a FOV article. Maybe showing the differences and any problems with higher FOV settings such as distortion. I'm not adept at optics in video games or I'd attempt it. Slacko 21:55, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

What the Hell?[edit]

Why does the "Render Distance" go to a new page? Surley it isn`t that hard to explain.166.127.1.227 19:32, 22 May 2012 (UTC)psycodragons

Not sure if bug[edit]

Setting GUI scale to small also makes everything in the Main Screen really small. Is this a bug? 'Cause there ain't no difference between big and normal.--62.242.64.212 11:19, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Intended. The Main Screen is also the GUI. Also, there is a difference between large and normal, enlarge the Minecraft window or use a bigger screen. Setting mine to Auto on fullscreen is actually bigger than the large setting. Kanegasi C 05:17, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Super Secret Settings?[edit]

Alright, so I found this button labeled "Super Secret Settings." A random sound effect plays, and Steve starts getting a bit tipsy. Why is this not in the article?

What happened to anisotropic filtering and advanced OpenGL?[edit]

I probably missed something back during 1.8's development, but was there any explanation given as to why those settings were removed? --BombChu16 (talk) 17:02, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Voice Slider[edit]

In the sound menu there is a "Voice/Speech" slider. What is it used for? It does not seems to affect the narrator. Cracraft31 (talk) 09:29, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

It's for custom maps. Mapmakers can add custom sounds with "voice" tag and its volume can be changed using the Voice/Speech slider.
