Is it possible to make low resolution tank sights? I play the mod with 800x600 resolution with all the graphics as low as possible (except view distance) and i can't play with tanks at all, because the tank sigths are so lousy! they're big, pixelated and can't be used to aim. they're only in the way and blocking my view. i'd rather try to shoot blindly than to try to aim with the tank sights.

(please, no idiotic comments like "get a better pc" or "change resolution" etc. I'm only intrested about the dev comments.)

Edit your "Videodefault.con" -file in your settings directory: add there a line:

renderer.mipmapbias -3

(Zero is the default, the more negative value, the sharper textures. -6 was the maximum IIRC)

Wow that helps :)

I think this must be in the next readme, because there are more people who want to know this.

hmm doesnt that increase the quality of all textures? thereby kinda undoing the lower graphic quality settings ingame? :uhm: The only solution would be to somehow prevent the aim sides from being reduced in quality even when the geaphic settings are set to theor lowests.

I tried it with 20% quality for textures, and the game looks bad as you suspect, but the ironsight of the tank was fine. So i don't think it increase all textures.

Damn it man, why didn't you post stuff like that earlier? When I actually had BF and FH on my system? :bawl: God only knows how many more times I would have survived, and even more tanks I could have knocked out with my precious Panther G/A!
