Wide screen only game

There needs to be a way to zoom out by scrolling. Non-wide screen gamers can't see the sides of the map.

There is a way to zoom out--just hit the minus sign! Apparently I need to put the zoom functions in a more accessible spot because you're not the first to complain about this. I haven't assigedn it to the mouse because my mouse doesn't register the scroll wheel in-game. Maybe I ought to allow both the scroll wheel and the + and - buttons to zoom.

Thanks!

How about mouse scroll down to do it? It's just a standard.

Yeah, the more I think about it the more I agree. I'll go ahead and work on using the mouse scroll to adjust zoom.

I'm sorry to say that after conducting some research, it is indeed impossible to move the zoom functionality to the mouse scroll wheel. Apparently (and this is after looking at every thread on SC2mapster that includes the term "scroll wheel" in it) there is no way to directly detect when the mouse scroll wheel is used. Games that let you modify the zoom by using the scroll wheel are actually using the in-game standard zoom detection and then modifying the zoom using that information. Because StarDodgeBall uses a fixed camera, it cannot detect this type of event.

Long story short, I can't make the scroll wheel the command to change the zoom. That's kind of disappointing.

Hmm I see. How about a button or some kind of UI that says "zoom" on the label because it's somewhat of a clutter to say there is a zoom function in instructions.
