I like to zoom out when i am playing ArmA as it gives me a wider feild of view than the default viewing position but with weapons with ACOG scopes or sniper rifles i cannot, why is this? and is there a fix for it?

Well, not all scopes and sights can zoom in and out, so why would they be made so they can? :O_o

predator887:

It wouldn't be a fix if they're not meant to zoom in and out. ;)
Yes, it can be done. It mght be considered cheating though. It would require to create a replacement config of weapons. Altering the the lines "maxzoomin[]=""" and "minzoomin[]=""" if I am correct.

i dont mean with the scopes, i mean when your weapon is at the low ready position you can zoom out and increase peripheral vision, ill post up some pics to illustrate when i get the chance

Then you mean Field Of View (FOV). No need to quote everything I said, I know exactly what you're replying to. ;)

Some topics and mods.
Also might be useful.

I use UNA 1.08. I also reccomend TrueMods FOV.

Yes, there has already been a discussion about being able to see through your scope so you are only partly zoomed in.

Found it.
Now, if this was initially an addon request you should have posted in the addon request thread.

thanks for the reply, ill check them out and sorry for posting in the wrong section of the forums

-----------------------

none of the mods seem to fix my problem

i want to toggle zoom out with a weapon that has an ACOG scope but i cannot, i can zoom out but cannot toggle it so that it is permanently zoomed out

in other words i want to be able to toggle zoom out like i can with weapons with standard aimpoints or ironsights

am i wrong do these mods solve the problem or are there others that do

[mod edit]
Please don't double post, edit your previous instead.

Did you check the 'found it' link? Is that what you want?

Well, if that's what you want, then it's not possible in ArmA, at least not yet.

no, that is not what i want, i have created a video to show you, hopefully it will be more clear after that.

EDIT
right just some clarification, there is a feature in Armed Assault where you can zoom out to give a wider view of surrounding terrain. Now there are 2 ways of doing this, either shift zoom where you must hold the selected key to remain zoomed out otherwise it returns to the default view and toggle zoom out where you simply press the key once and after you let go of the button it remains in the zoomed out mode. my problem is that with weapons with scopes such as ACOGs for example the toggle zoom out feature does not work

here is the video:

as you can see at the end i am trying to toggle zoom out but i cannot, its pretty annoying, i hope that makes things a little clearer
