How can i zoom out in Generals (not zerohour) ?

Recommended Posts

Hi generals, it's my first post.


1) I've managed to zoom out in Zero Hour (editing the .ini in the data folder (gamedata.ini).

2) I've managed to set the optimum resolution for my screen (1366x768) for both generals and zerohour

3) But I can't zoom out in Generals (it doesn;t have an ini folder in data folder like zh)


What am I doing wrong? I have the ultimate collection running in windows 8.1 Has anybody managed zooming out in generals?

Did you even run Generals first?


GenTool gives better widescreen support and a more zoomed-out (actually adapted) view for both Generals and Zero Hour, give it a try. http://www.cncnz.com/features/gentool-for-cc-generals-and-zero-hour/


Here is a sample screenshot:

OK i found the way, i am looking for it since yesterday. Of course I've ran the game first.

The solution: http://modsreloaded.com/camera-zoom download from the link the .zip and paste the .ini file in the ini folder that you have to make in the data folder (because there is no ini folder in generals). It works perfect


I haven't tried GenTool because i found that it gives you the control of the zoom level only during replays and not live in the mission.

It does adapt the view and zoom ingame to actual 16:9/16:10 if you choose such a resolution.
