Ah yes, you’re forgetting the “increased minimap size” mods i just remembered haha. In all seriousness I use an old 27" tv as my monitor and it’s max res is only 1600x900 so I supersample using the regular windows resolution settings to get a larger view of the battlefield for the 300 pop lag fests i prefer playing. I do somewhat agree that no matter what your resolution is, you should be able to zoom in and out to the same limits, but I’m content doing it this way because I prefer the resolution overall on everything, even if i’m losing some performance and also some crispness, but this also has the hidden bonus of being anti aliasing for free and supersampling as it is called is actually often used by games for this purpose, and is also configurable in the nvidia control panel.
Oh and as a small challenge to you guys I suggest occasionally disabling ALL mods you are using and play the game the way it comes out of the box from time to time just as a way to humble and maybe cultivate some ideas-fixes-suggestions so the devs dont feel like they’re playing “5 dimensional chess with multiverse time travel” when trying to make the the “correct” changes everyone is asking for.
Why isn’t it an issue? Most would consider a player playing at 480p zoom level vs 1080p zoom level an unfair fight. Why don’t we give same consideration to 1080p zoom level and 1440p(or something else) zoom level?
Other games where you have to micro units and see minimap don’t allow different levels of zoom for different resolution. Are they wrong?
We have this feature for years in the game. It was already part of Voobly. I never really heard higher level players claiming that different zoom levels are really an issue. If it really was an issue, then i expect many higher rated players speaking about this issue. In reality i dont really see many complaints at all.
Yeah, that’s an awesome trick, breeminator! Thanks for sharing. Only down side is I only want it to be like that while playing AoE… so it’s a bit of manual work to switch between that and regular 1080HD that I want for everything else
