    Subject: HELP with zoom.

    Alright, I got age of empiers 3 - the warchiefs.

     I play it a lot and I love it. yesterday I played aswell and when I started an online game, the zoom was on near, tho it has always been on very far!

     

    When I checked my options it said that it was on very far.... I couldnt zoom out eiter with the scrollwheel.

     Can anyone help me with this? How can I get it back normal...

    You can delete your folder under My Documents\ My Games \ Age of Empires III.  However you will loose all of your save games.

    Make sure it was not a custom map or that you where playing on a map that was close to the camera view also.

    Solus, I have the same problem.

     

    I play TAD in two computers, my parentes is a 15" screen and the far zoom is great. My computer is more powerfull and the screen is 19" LCD. And, unbelievable, the far zoom isn't so... far.

     When I start the Japanese Campain, for instance, the zoom are closet at 2 guys, so, when it zoom out everything are still big and my options is already seted "very far".

     

    I tried you strategy of deleting the folder, no way, the zoom was the same. 

    Downloaded the latest video drive (geforce 7600GT)... nothing.

    And more, I tried WTC , its zoom was good before instal TAD, now is the same.

     

    Before posting, I looked for the same doubt but they didn't say how they got it, if they did.

    Someone know how do I solve it? I will go to my parents house just in tow weeks and want to play TAD NOW! =)

    Got it!

     

    I found these options in a ancient post:

     

    Open the folder Age of Empires III >> Startup >> gamey.cfg (open it and you will find the options)

     

    I put these like the guy wrote:

    limitPitch=35
    maxZoom=225
    normalZoom=200
    minZoom=10
    extraZoomPercent=0.35
    zoomSpeed=0.5
    zoomWheelDivisor=30.0

     

    Good luck for who have the problem yet!  Big Smile
