Camera Zoom Out Command Still Work?

Can anyone confirm if the console command to zoom out further than the normal slider allows still works? I have seen it in various boss kill videos from this tier yet it does not work for me and it is quite frustrating..

If anyone can confirm that it works can you also post the command that works for you?

Thanks a ton!

The script is /console cameradistancemaxfactor 5.

It does but it resets whenever you log out. I have it as a macro.

This will make it permanent.

/script SetCVar ("cameraDistancemax" ,50)

Run these 2 commands and see if it helps. 50 is the farthest BTW

/script SetCVar ("cameraDistanceMaxFactor" ,1)
/script SetCVar ("cameraDistancemax" ,50)

Is your machine capable of handling it? Perhaps the system is preventing you from using this feature simply because it sees your computer can't handle the load.

Thanks a million, this worked for me! :D mine was all bugged up, everytime I went to zoom out it would put me in first person view, so annoying and thanks again.

Wow... I'll never have to use my max distance macro ever again. Worked like a charm, thank you BG.

Edit: I didn't know this was a necro'd thread

Hey guys, I am having the same issue with my camera distance. I can't zoom out. I have tried all the macros posted and nothing is helping. What are my options?
