Summary0002134: set-fov SEXP at beginning of mission has no effect
DescriptionIf a set-fov SEXP is used at the beginning of a mission, it will not change the mission's FOV.
Additional InformationIt consistently does this with ( true ), ( has-time-elapsed 0 ), ( has-arrived-delay 0 "Alpha 1" ), basically anything that puts it at the beginning of the mission.
TagsNo tags attached.

I suspect that this might have to do with the default FOV being set AFTER the first round of SEXP evaluations.

Not a solution but it might be a workaround and confirm if that is the problem. Try setting a player entry delay if it's single player and using the has-arrived-delay alpha 1.

Just tested it, and this is still present in r7768. FUBAR's suggestion has no effect, the FOV is still not set.

With true and has-time-elapsed 0, this now works. I tracked it to sexp_set_fov() getting a NULL camera pointer (because the game runs sexp evaluation code before it does rendering setup stuff, as explained by The_E, so there's no camera for it to use). A quick fix by The_E solved this issue. Still no luck with has-arrived-delay on the player, as in that case sexp_set_fov() never actually gets called.
