Issues with the Zoom

I'm having a lot of fun with Pike and Shot, but the thing that bothers me most is the zoom function. I simply cannot get close enough to the action. I don't mind if the graphics break down or look blocky, I simply cannot stand to have the camera so high in the air. The top down view seems to zoom a little closer, but it's not much better, and I don't like viewing the battle top-down.

Congratulations on producing another great title, and please let me know if there's any fix for this zoom issue.

Went looking to see if there were any new scenarios, and wound up finding my answer!

I think 100 is a little too much on the zoomin level, and I didn't up the zoomout level, but otherwise this fixes everything.

I'd close/delete the thread if I could, but I think other users might like to know about this feature.

Hello grumblefish,

As I said further below in that thread, the settings I now prefer are:
ZOOMLIMIT 550
ZOOMINLIMIT 200
Zoom In is better this way IMO, not too close, not too far away; the increased Zoom Out alows a better overview of the map. The stats in MAPVIEW.TXT can easily be edited, with a bit experimenting you'll find the settings that fit best to your needs.
