    Icon2 zooming of view

    Every once in a while my "camera" view zooms all the way in or all the way out. This is especially irritating when in a battle. I am unknowingly pressing a combination of keys, but I can't figure out which ones. (BTW, I have Vista.)

    Is there a feature where you can change the zoom? I had a zoom feature for this for a short time, but x'd it out and haven't seen it since, and can't figure out how to get it back. That same day I also was able to view my collections in a more organized way (not just alpha).

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

    You can scroll up or down. Alternatively, you can press esc, then click on options, click on game options, and enable the navigation panel / window option. (I don't have the game on this computer and I'm at school so I can't check what it says exactly.)

    Also your name bothers me. Does it bother anyone else?

    Sometimes, if you are near an obstruction, the camera will react a certain way because the wall is in the way of the camera.

    Oh yes. Forgot to mention that. The camera usually doesn't like looking at you through something. If you back up against a wall, the camera will zoom all the way in. If there is a pole between the camera and your character, it will zoom in so that its just in front of the pole.

    That doesn't explain why it zooms out all the way randomly though. Are you accidentally moving your scroll wheel?

    The name doesn't 'stand' for anything, just a name. As for the instructions, they were helpful. I've been in the "exit" screen (as I call it), but I haven't looked at any of the new options for a while. Thanks for the nudge to explore.
