    No longer can zoom out super far

    I know the macro for increasing zoom distance but recently, power went out and my comp got shut off. This caused all my interface options and WoW related personal settings to reset because WoW was running when it happened.

    I got the macro and now I zoom out further, but not as far as I could before. Anyone know whats up?

    from memory the macro contains something along the lines of set maximum distance.
    there's an addon that does the same thing via curse. i still am able to go max distance.

    There's a mechanism in windows that allows you to restore your system, settings etc (wow included) to previous day when everything was fine. Dont have time to look it up now since I'm at work and posting on phone but you should find it pretty easily wit google. Same thing happened to me once and that's how I got it fixed.

    Macro
    Code:
    /run print("cameraDistanceMaxis currently at: "..GetCVar("cameraDistanceMax").." Factor: "..GetCVar("cameraDistanceMaxFactor"))
    /script SetCVar("cameraDistanceMax",50)
    /script SetCVar("cameraDistanceMaxFactor",5)
    Make sure to zoom in first.

    Make sure to zoom in first. Try numbers between 5 and 50.

    Well 5 is maximum so 5000 is a bit of an overkill. nice to see it still works

    Set distance max to 50 and the factor to 5. You should see a difference.

    Code:
    /run print("cameraDistanceMaxis currently at: "..GetCVar("cameraDistanceMax").." Factor: "..GetCVar("cameraDistanceMaxFactor"))
    /script SetCVar("cameraDistanceMax",50)
    /script SetCVar("cameraDistanceMaxFactor",5)
