Field of View Scrolling

Scroll through your Field of View with your mouse. Hold down Mouse4 in the process.

Mouse4 + Mwheelup = "-10 FOV" (+Zoom)
Mouse4 + Mwheeldown = "+10 FOV" (-Zoom)

Script:
Code:
//===============================================================================

alias 	"Fnone" 	""
alias 	"F80" 		"default_fov 80; alias FOVUp Fnone; alias FOVDown F90"
alias 	"F90" 		"default_fov 90; alias FOVUp F80; alias FOVDown F100"
alias 	"F100" 		"default_fov 100; alias FOVUp F90; alias FOVDown F110"
alias 	"F110" 		"default_fov 110; alias FOVUp F100; alias FOVDown F120"
alias 	"F120" 		"default_fov 120; alias FOVUp F110; alias FOVDown Fnone"

alias 	"+FOVSwitch" 	"bind mwheelup FOVUp; bind mwheeldown FOVDown"
alias 	"-FOVSwitch" 	"bind mwheelup InvNext; bind mwheeldown InvPrev"
bind 	"mouse4" 	"+FOVSwitch"
F90

//===============================================================================
Insert in your autoexec.

If you would like for your FOV to be different than 90 on startup, change the last line (F90) to one of the commands below.

F80 = 80 Field of View
F90 = 90 Field of View
F100 = 100 Field of View
F110 = 110 Field of View
F120 = 120 Field of View




I'm sorry if there is a mistake; I don't have the time tonight to test it out. Please inform me of an error and I'll fix it ASAP.

Code:
alias "+FOVSwitch" "bind mwheelup multvar default_fov 80 120 .9;bind mwheeldown multvar default_fov 80 120 1.1"
alias "-FOVSwitch" "bind mwheelup invprev;bind mwheeldown invnext"
bind "mouse4" "+FOVSwitch"
Same script, but smaller and reassigns the wheel to weapon switching. Also, you can change the .9 or 1.1 to the amount you would like to multiply the FOV to instead of all those aliases.

Jolly good. But..

Question: What was the intention? A fov cycler or a zoomer?
It's just that as a zoom the fov changes are so small that it barely qualify as a zoom. Best 120 straight to 80.

I like having Q3 style zoom.

I agree, going from one FOV to another instantly will be more useful than having to scroll. Like Hl2's suit zoom.

BTW, did anybody ever wonder how you could zoom in, even though the suit only goes to your neck? Haxor glasses maybe?

I didn't make this script for ZOOMING. I just made it so you can modify your FOV easier.

Also I forgot to add in the weapon switch that I was intending to do, so I'mma fix that right now.

If you have your default_fov set from 110 or 120, it can be harder to see further distances. My script has the ability to zoom in quickly, but it's not the best since it was not my intention for it to zoom. Again, it was made just so you can modify your field of view to a comfortable level anytime you want to change it.

Neat, but I think it would mess with my game play style.
