View Full Version : zoom in zoom out

15th Jul 2002, 22:51
I've been scratching my head over this. I hear there is a zoom in and a zoom out function in this game. In my manual it says the + and - keys are used to zoom in and out. Well i hit those keys and nothing happens. I was wondering how you do this? thanks in advance.

Use those on a numeric keypad (the grey ones on the right)

admittedly, i'm partly responsible for this, but since starting his career as moderator x's hair has turned grey. since he was born with grey eyes, he now looks in the mirror and sees everything in shades of grey. so 1shot, let the poor aging x say that all numeric keypads are grey. it will make him feel better...

And make sure "num lock" is off

That won't make any difference.

correct. if Num Lock is off, the grey numeric keypad doesn't produce ASCII code for numbers. thus, it has no effect on the grey + or - keys.

Yeah it dont matter if numlock is on or off. I feel stupid a bit for not checking the + - on the keypad. I guess i'm used to doing the + - at the top of the keyboard. cheers

Also, the asterisk * in the numeric keypad returns the screen to the "proper" setting.
