Is there any way to zoom in or out? I seem to only be able to use one level.

There is only one zoom level, you can use the jump map to jump to a different area of the map or scroll the map

Hi Peter,

Speaking of the jump map, .. should it be persistent?

As soon as I click on it, .. the map will scroll, .. but the jump map disappears ..

Cheers
Tom

It was programmed that way, so the jump map is not in our way anymore once you use it.

Hi toddtreadway, I have not seen the game yet so I cannot comment on how different zoom levels look, but just a suggestion, when I looked at the tutorials I used my windows seven magnifier, and it worked fine at different levels.

The Windows magnifier is fine if you are playing in Windowed mode, but I can't play in Windowed mode because Windows 10 won't let me modify the config.ini file.

Regardless, in-game zoom levels really are an option that should be explored. I'm surprised it wasn't implemented on release. Honestly, almost all wargames have multiple zoom levels.

FYI, I am having a lot of fun with the game so far. It is so nice to be able to play ASL again (or at least the closest) thing I've seen to it in a computer game!)

I agree about more zoom levels of you think it would befit the eyesight
Do not know about windows 10, it was just a suggestion.

Absolutely agree - the Zoom Levels really should have been there initially. I know the game was getting torched by some YouTubers for its "DOS-like graphics" (as I think one of them said).

That didn't bother me at all; as a tactical boardgame wargamer, I bought if for the play, not the counter art.

But not including things that even the first initial - relatively successful - attempts at porting board wargames to desktop/laptop had (Tiller's games, for instance) - like zoom levels, options for NATO symbols on the counters, options for seeing a bit more number-crunching details under the hood (a huge reason that keeps ASLers and their ilk from playing PC games) - was troubling to me.

I bought the game in spite of those - hoping later patches may bring some of those along - and so, far am glad I did. But something like Zoom levels beyond just the Jump Map seems like a "Need To Have" rather than a "Nice To Have" for game like this to me.

Still putting it through its paces though - we'll see if this is less an issue as time goes on. Or, gets trumped by bigger ones.

Install the game in c:\matrixgames or some such (e.g., not in program files) and you'll be able to edit the ini file. I tried it earlier and it worked fine.

Windows 10 magnifier works great in full screen.
