FOV - zoom etc
« on: July 15, 2015, 08:34:18 AM »
 :rocketleft:  I'm back to Quake II after around 14 years!  Was playing QII in 1998 - with my (then) handy new graphics card installed.  I've come back and enjoy everything about Q2 - shame I ever left!   :ubershock:

Anyway, I've binded 'q' to zoom_on and this seems to work well.  However, do you zoom into 40 and then out to 110, like me?  Is this what people tend to use?  What's your normal FOV for the Rails maps?

The CTF maps are mad fast - I've got ALT as my +hook, but to get a frag takes considerable effort - it's fast, fast, fast.  How do players manage to shoot across the map, a]spin around and then rail me so easily - just pracy?

Hey bean$ welcome back!

I don't think many CTF players use the zoom function? I could be wrong but as you said CTF especially railwarz CTF is very fast paced so not much time for zooming

Over the years I've played with 70 80 90 95 100 110 fov

10 or 15 years ago I used to always play with 120 fov

Of course the higher for you use the more you can see n faster everything appears but thing become small and hard to see.

Today
I really like 100 or 110 fov the best IMO as it seems to speed up and expand my vision just enough so +hook a wall or ceiling and spinning around to make a quick shot in mid air seems effortless

100 or 110 is still low enough that I can still see the players movement and never need to use a zoom bind.

This is all personal preference so try starting at 70 n go up increments of 10 until you hit 120 see what feels the best jumping spinning aiming hooking shooting

Occasionally I will switch up my fov 70-110 n play a few games on whatever I'm feeling like that day. I feel that changing the fov makes the game seem fresh and new to me and I concentrate better

Everyone in CTF has their own setup as far as what keys n fingers they use

I prefer to jump right mouse click
Shoot left click

+hook  and crouch left pinky

To each their own

Do you play as bean$ when connected to server?

Look forward to fragging with you

    ;)  OK, pretty much my set up now.  Was fov 120, but now go for 110.  In CTF - too quick to mess about with zoom - thought so   :lol:

My jump is righ click and ALT is +hook.  Might change +hook to 'q' key, as that's my zoom - and I hardly use it, even in dm.  In FOV 70 - it feels like running in honey!   :-[ 

Thanks for the reply - and frag yer soon ...  bean$    8)
