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?

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.

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.


On DOTA maps I found a book icon around buttons where you can buyback your hero when he/she dies (your hero reserved location near foundation). If you click on the book you'll see buttons to zoom in and zoom out plus other settings for mouse right click deny support and auto attack and ...

  • Custom maps implement zoom commands at their discretion, and there is no standard syntax. Only a small subset of maps bother to implement one.
