Extreme zoom with GUI scale

Postby TC42 » Sun May 08, 2011 4:54 pm

This is not for beginners, so if your are not familiar with any of the terms used, don't even attempt this.

Open the console.

Type in gui.scale=0.05. This will scale your gui down until it is slightly bigger than your mouse cursor.

Then try to zoom in/out. You get an extreme zoom range--you can zoom out so much that you can see all four of the killer planes at once, and you can zoom in enough to create an object that is less than one meter across! :lol: I dunno if this is a bug or not, but it may be useful... just remember to type gui.scale=1 into the console when you're done... I am not responsible for anything that may happen as a result of this, and you should proceed at your own risk.

Hmm... Tiny gui.scale allows you to zoom way out, but not very far in. But, you can't really do anything.
Huge gui.scale means that the menus eat up the whole screen so you really can't do anything.

Interesting...

But why is this in Suggestions? :wtf:

That's because you are using a newer version of algodoo. This easter-egg is only present in 1.8.5 and older.
