I can zoom out by holding the "eye" button with L & R, but can't seem to find any combination of buttons that zooms in.
Can't seem to find a copy of the instruction manual online, my only option if someone can't provide this info (if I must have the answer) is to buy the game on eBay so I can read how to zoom back in after zooming out. So far I've found no mention of how to zoom in on the PS1 version of the game. The PC version is 2D instead of 3D and apparently crashes about halfway through the game (not sure if still true).
My other option is to not zoom out, because the game slows down a lot when zoomed out (hardware limitations), but it would be nice to not have to make that compromise (the slowdown could be advantageous, giving you more time to give orders, but suck when you don't want it slow, or want to see things closer; can be hard to hunt for magic items [located on a subtle sparkle, seen every 3 seconds or so on different battlefields] zoomed out too).
There's only this forum and one other where it seems like it might be reasonable to request this. I will wait for replies here before I post the same topic on the other forum.
Thank you for reading.
