Dead Space 3
Submitted by: David K.
Use a text editor to edit the "system.txt" file in the "...[username]\AppData\Local\EA Games\Dead Space 3\"
directory. Look for the following line: "Window.FOVScale = 1.00000000". The default setting is 1.0 for a
field of view of 75 degrees. For a view similar to the original Dead Space, change it to "1.2". Changing it
to "1.5" will give you an even wider view. Note: Change the "Window.WideScreen" line to "True" if you are
using a 16:9 monitor.
Increasing frame rate:
Normally, Dead Space 3 defaults to 30 FPS, regardless of your monitor's refresh rate. However, you can
increase the frame rate to 60 FPS using the following steps. First, go to the in-game video settings menu,
disable Vsync, and then exit the game. Open your video card control panel, and enable Vsync (either
globally or for Dead Space 3 specifically). Then, start Dead Space 3 again, and the FPS should now be at
60 FPS instead of 30 FPS.
Note: If you do not enable Vsync in the video card control panel, you may have choppy frame rates, screen
tearing, and even video card overheating.

Defeating enemies more easily:
Whenever you exit through a doorway or stand inside or near an elevator, enemies will leave the area.
When enemies ambush you in a room accessed through an elevator or door, return to the elevator or door
and wait. All nearby enemies will instantly retreat, giving you plenty of time to reload and heal. Then,
slowly leave the elevator or door's range until the enemies return. Stay nearby, and you can easily step
back into range of the elevator or door to get them to retreat again. Additionally, try using Stasis on
a single enemy before standing near an elevator or door. The rest of the enemies will retreat, allowing
you to kill each enemy one at a time. Note: This trick does not work on ladders. This trick works on most
elevators and doors, but there maybe an elevator or door it does not work on. This trick can also sometimes
make enemies in some rooms freeze or begin to act as if Isaac cannot be seen.

* Reach the area near the end of Chapter 8 and look for a small building that must be entered by side-
stepping a corrugated metal fence. The correct building has a generator to the right, bunk beds to the
left, and an exit door ahead. Once inside, leave the room through the door ahead of the beds. After the
door closes, turn around and re-enter the room. A random item will appear near the beds. Exit the room
from the same door, wait for the door to close, then re-enter to repeat the process. The items are random,
and may be sold or crafted.
* Reach the end of Chapter 13 and defeat the Boss. An auto-save icon will appear while you move into a large
snowy field scattered with crates. Do not continue to the exit. Collect the tungsten and items from the crates.
Then, pause game play and select the "Save And Quit" option to return to the main menu. Next, select the
"Continue From Last Save" option to return to the start of the snowy field area. The items in the crates will
have respawned and can be collected again as many times as desired.

Easy "Payback" achievement:
In Chapter 10, while fighting the first wave of enemies at the beginning of the chapter, after going
outside a dropship, there will be some soldiers. Hide behind cover until they throw a grenade, which
will be glowing red. Use kinesis to pick up the grenade and throw it back at any soldier to get the
If you accidentally sell or lose the Plasma Cutter it is possible to craft another one by combining:
* Frame - Compact Standard Frame or Compact Elite Frame.
* Upper Tool- Plasma Engine.
* Lower Tool - Rotator Cuff Module.
When picking up an artifact, advance to the next location to go past a doorway. Once you have passed
the door, let it shut and reopen. Now return to the location where you found the artifact and in its
place you should find resources such as the semiconductors, tungsten, scrap metal, transoucer and health
packs. You can repeat this trick as often as you like.
Item Duplication (Cooperative Mode):
You can perform this cheat anywhere in the game, but it works best if you put it to use near a
checkpoint and bench. You'll need to be playing with a friend, preferably one who is equipped with
a headset so that you can communicate as needed. Start by giving your friend the items you wish to
duplicate. After the trade is completed, exit out to the main menu and then immediately have the
friend who received your loot save and quit from the pause menu. The trick only works if you follow
that precise order, and quickly. If you did it properly, both players should now have the desired
items in their inventory.
