Default More zoom?

Would love to be able to zoom out more to be able to see more of the area. Prolly has some play balance implications b/c ranged characters can shoot farther.

You can change zoomMax in default.cfg.

Thumbs up

Even better! Thanks again! I'm loving the game, but I'm loving the tech support here every bit as much :-)

Hi,

I tried to change some setting, but it seems ingame it's not effective.

I suppose it's related to these numbers, so i changed them at random several times "just to see".

Code:
r_fov			85.0		Save
r_viewCloseDist		400.0		Save
r_viewCloseZ		0.7		Save
r_viewFarDist		1700.0		Save
r_viewFarZ		2.4		Save

r_drawTiles		1
r_CullTiles		2

r_windowPosX		0		Save
r_windowPosY		0		Save

r_firstTime		1		Save

r_postponeTextureUpload	1		Save
r_desktopFullscreen	0		Save VidRestart
r_fog			1		Save
r_fogHardware		0

r_useVbos		1		Save

r_checkGlErrors		1		Save

monitorSync		1		Save
zoom			4.5		Save
zoomMin			0.01
zoomMax			8.5
showSkel		0
showTags		0
drawModel		1
maxFps			45		Save
The default file was like this :

Code:
r_fov			60.0		Save
r_viewCloseDist		400.0		Save
r_viewCloseZ		0.7		Save
r_viewFarDist		700.0		Save
r_viewFarZ		1.4		Save

r_drawTiles		1
r_CullTiles		2

r_windowPosX		0		Save
r_windowPosY		0		Save

r_firstTime		1		Save

r_postponeTextureUpload	1		Save
r_desktopFullscreen	0		Save VidRestart
r_fog			1		Save
r_fogHardware		0

r_useVbos		1		Save

r_checkGlErrors		1		Save

monitorSync		1		Save
zoom			1.3		Save
zoomMin			0.4
zoomMax			1.3
showSkel		0
showTags		0
drawModel		1
maxFps			0		Save
What am i doing wrong ?

Thanks

I'm not at a good place to test this, myself, but maybe the game's using another copy of that cfg file? Maybe somewhere in your documents/data folder?

Maybe one of the numbers your tried is strange enough for the game to stop reading the config and use defaults?

This game's written for Windows and Linux; any chance the line endings were changed when you saved the file?

It's been a while since I changed anything with any of these. Looks like changing the zoom stuff isn't very useful. You can increase r_viewFarDist a little to get more zoom though.
