Beginner who needs help =)
« on: September 05, 2020, 08:24:13 AM »

I'm trying to revive this good old warcraft 2 with this great warcraft 2 combat which already allowed me to filter textures with xbrz freescale.
(I use the boxed BNE version).

I only play solo with the main campaigns.

I manage to switch the resolution to the native resolution of my screen (wqhd).

But I come to you for two problems that I cannot solve.

When I move the mouse cursor to view the map (not the mini map but the game map), the animation is a bit jerky (it's not smooth) and it's very unpleasant in games.

I have the impression that in windowed mode the problem partially disappears.

The second concern concerns the possibility of zooming as in any recent rts.

Warcraft 2 was probably not designed to be able to zoom, but suddenly the camera is very close to the terrain, which is quite inconvenient.

These two elements spoil the gameplay a bit and I saw on the main screen of the warcraft 2 combat site a screenshot in aerial view where the units appear from a distance and suddenly much finer too ..: p

How did you manage to achieve this result? (the image is very sharp)

I searched for patches and on the site but I can't find it.

Do you have to modify the ini file. or the ddraw file to allow zoom?

Unless the solution is to download a patch of maps of the main campaigns?

Thanks a lot for your help.
