I have a 27" Cinema Display with Mac OS X 10.6.5 .

So I would really like to play Frozen Throne one my big screen but everything is soo big, it's really annoying :(

Is there any way to zoom out? Any hacks or some tools or tips, something?

Given that it's a game in the same genre produced by the same company, this question / answer might also account for this question:… – Raven Dreamer Dec 25 '10 at 0:41

Do the following:

  1. Open System Preferences > Displays and get your screen's resolution.
  2. Open Warcraft III and go to Options > Video and set the resolution to the same.
  3. Play the game fullscreen and enjoy.

If you want to effect camera zoom, you can use the vertical scrollwheel of the mouse or I think the + and - keys to zoom in and out.

A little bit of searching around seems to indicate that this might be possible with War3. Try this out, I have tried this on Windows (Registry Editing and all that) but this is with Mac

you can set your maps to be able to zoom in or zoom out. follow this tutorial:

Try this command after the game start (in game chat):

-cam 1.40

where 1.00 is normal(100%) distance and 1.40 in example is 40% zoomed out of normal distance.

I just tried this command in custom map Dota LOD Map 6.83 and it was working as expected. I'm not sure about other warcraft III maps.
