Strange Zoom problem

Recommended Posts

Hi Today i had to reinstall my 737. It only crashed to desktop with "A fatal error occured" upon loading aircraft, didn't matter how i loaded it. So i tried uninstalling it and dowloaded a new setyp with the hotfix 3 patch and installed it with liveries. But now my zoom looks really strange.. Zoom 1.0 now looks like zoom 3.0 (see attachment) and if i zoom out the most to 0.3 it feels like 0.7 zoom was before Any idea of what happened?

You know, that's actually the most realistic zoom level. Normally we set it to lower zoom levels so that we see more, but technically speaking, through a window the size of your computer screen, that is what you would see in the real cockpit. It is equivalent as changing the lens of a reflex camera. With a 50mm lens, everything looks just as it looks with your naked eye, yet photographed subjects will not fit full body in the frame, and you would have to walk back a lot. Instead of that, you can change to a wider lens (what we normally do in FS). More things will fit in frame, but the perspective will change. 1:1 zoom feels like "being there"... but it sucks on 1 monitor.
