Is there an easy way to not have the scope surrounded by black when you zoom into a weapons optics?
For example the M4A1 ACOG does it properly but is it also possible to modify it so you can do the same for the M107, M24 and other sniper systems?
The m24 is fired with several inches of eye relief, not right up into the scope with black all around as it is currently in the game.
A way has not been found yet. The zoom level is set in the config, and the reason that it's black everywhere else is because the surrounding areas are also zoomed. This is to prevent an unfair advantage.
This is an excellent idea, if it could be worked out. The Aimpoint scope is a good example except it isn't magnified...
Guess there isn't a way to magnify a selected area and leave the area around it less magnified?
The M4A1 GL ACOG doesn't use the scope though, it uses it's ironsights on the top of the ACOG.
I think there was a discussion similar to this a while ago relating to the half life 2 insurgency mod, in which the weapon optics are outstanding.
Is this what you are looking for?
