View Distance - Not correct/working

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys. 

So I received several reports from my users that they cannot see anything beyond 700m, although view distance in profile is set to 3800 as below: 

viewDistance=3800;
preferredObjectViewDistance=3200;

Anybody else stumbled upon this? Or have ideas why this happens?

I haven't encountered it myself, as I barely ever use rangefinders, snipers etc.

And wd is locked at 1600 in multiplayers

Ahh thanks, not too long ago I aqquired infiSTAR, so I'm not that known with it yet ;) and the 1600 vd for MP, well not sure what to say here, because I've seen greater than 1600 for sure, otherwise you wouldn't be able to make 2k kills, if it was capped at 1600, it's a bit unclear on that since some say they can, and others cant, of course it also has to do a lot with client vd settings (Most of the time actually when people are complaining they can resolve it themselves by adjusting their own vd.)

Yeah I just checked their wiki, it does say 1600m that's not true. I've seen KoH servers with 3000m, so that data isn't correct, wouldn't know if you'd have to work-around some stuff to bypass a 1600m limit, but it seems possible. It's wierd that infiSTAR is set to 1000m default. 

Thanks for the heads up, I've adjusted accordingly now ;)

EDIT: That being said it should be 2100m to match the scope that goes to 2100, Arma you're wierd...

Added 2100m quote.

simply exec

setviewdistance 1000;

for a view distance of 1000 etc etc

That only works if they are not using infistar. If using infistar it should be located in the infistar servermod
