Zoom: Preference

Postby Bolgo The Madd » Thu Oct 02, 2008 2:48 am

Is it just me, or does anyone else wish they could zoom out just a little bit more? Really, just itty bitty bit... ugh town seems so far away.

Great game!

I would like an option to zoom out more as well.

Why stop at just a little bit. I want to be able to zoom from the current distance up to the one you have in your town view.

Tilt would be good too indeed. That way we could run in the right direction with zqsd (wasd). My mind isn't very clear after a day's work to deal with the 45° turned map :D

I obviously agree to the zooming part. It would make playing a ranged character more sensible too.

I just wrote a thread about this, but I see it's not just me. The game is unplayable to me with this level of zoom. I find my character being struck by arrows but no enemy in sight.

If I had to guess, I'd say it's broken and a bug and just needs to have a patch put out so that we can have a decent amount of zoom level, because as I said, to me, this level of closeup zoom is unplayable and really to be honest, looks pretty bad on a 22" screen, even Diablo II Lord of Destruction at 1024x768 looks as good on my screen unfortunately.

Please patch in the zoom levels that really should be here or tell us it's not gonna happen so that I can try to get a refund from steam as it's neigh unplayable at this zoom level.

On the note of range, it's clear the range of the ranged weapons is larger than the screen view

So when my character is wielding a bow, and Im being hit by arrows from the enemy, I can't even target them to hit them unless I move my character around in hopes of finding them on the screen. It needs repair in my opinion.

I've adapted to be pretty savvy with the REGION button, but the ranged comments have me thinking. Maybe the view is supposed to be wider?

As a heads up I've figured out a way to add zoom into the game. I'm finalizing the best way to explain how to do this. It will probably be posted by the weekend.

Ohh yes, zoom would be awesome. I kind of got used to it but regardless it'd be great. Rotation, too!
