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)

Unsure about anisotropic filtering, but Advanced OpenGL is always enabled now, since basically every graphics card that can handle playing Minecraft now supports all the features needed for it. Theprismaticvoid (talk) 16:00, 17 June 2020 (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.
