Been a long while since I played then I play sporadically.  After a long time off I played again today and my viewpoint had changed.  I played one game where all I could see is the reticle with no zoom, no good idea about my facing etc.  Another game and I could see the top half of the tank so at least I had an idea about facing, but no zoom. These views are nothing that I had ever used before.  How do you change them?  Can it be changed before you get into a game?  I tried using a couple buttons I thought would do something but no, nothing happened. It was mid game and I didn't want to sit there messing around without knowing for sure what was going to happen.  I'd appreciate any help or being pointed in the right direction.

You used them, you just don't remember them.

 

Assuming we're talking about the PC version of the game ...

 

Mouse Wheel or Left Shift toggles between Gunner and TC view.

 

Mouse wheel gives you variable zoom, L-Shift is snap-to-zoom.

The beer sounds good...geez hate to reinstall.  I just downloaded a slew of updates...then played and seemed a few things had changed.  I know about the mouse wheel and right and left mouse, etc which is why I posted the question.  Maybe it's a technical issue....geez I hate having to uninstall and reinstall.

I did play with the mouse wheel, nothing.  On One game everything worked fine, then nothing.

Loose USB connection?

 

Dead mouse-bat ?

 

When you hit ESC in your Garage, it will bring-up a menu, on which you will find a Settings selection.

 

Paddle around in there awhile and get familiar with it.

 

Play low-tiers until you have a grip on all your settings - alot has changed.
