View Full Version : How to get correct magnification
Aug 6 2009, 20:14
I'am working on a couple of additional optics/scopes and looking for a way to find the correct values for the
opticsZoomMin and max values for diffrent magnifications is there a way to simply calculate them?
Eg: the min and max values for a scope with 20-60 magnication
Thanx in advance
The method remains the same as for Armed Assault, that is by dividing a basic value. From the OpticsZoomMin and OpticsZoommAX values it is clear that unlike Armed Assault where the magnification was the basic value of 0.25 divided by the number of the desired magnification it is now a slightly lower value that is used for the division, possibly to reflect different stances when holding the weapon normally and then shouldering it to look through the scope, generally bringing the eye slightly forward. The formula can be derived from the config in the weapons.pbo, for example the M16A4 mounting an ACOG with 4x magnification has the following values:
opticsZoomMin = 0.0623;
opticsZoomMax = 0.0623;
whereas the M24 with 10x scope has:
opticsZoomMin = 0.0249;
opticsZoomMax = 0.0249;
This indicates that a value of 0.249-0.2492 rather than 0.25 is to be used as the basic value.

seems to work fine
