About this mod

Enhanced HUD for MW5 with a bunch of new features

Permissions and credits
RTX Raytracing is now supported

This mod MUST be installed the traditional way through Paks folder (and not through in game mod manager)

Enhanced HUD for MW5 with Advanced zoom

- Joystick and Gamepad Keybinds now should be supported (I have neither... so test it)
- Advance zoom toggle keybind now should take effect immediately during gameplay
- Major tweaks to the advanced zoom lighting adaptation (no more too dark or too bright)   
- Performance fix when a target is selected with advanced zoom active      
- Performance Improvements (close to no stutters caused by mouse wheel... note that enemy spawn events cause a stutter on its own)
- Overall pass on reticle offsets for pinpoint accuracy
- Mouse wheel down (or your custom zoom out key) always will switch off advanced zoom now. Even if it was brought up with the toggle key

 - Advanced Zoom (set on Left Alt as default. Configurable in options menu at the very end of the "controls" section) - CO-OP IS SUPPORTED

 - Advanced Zoom is also added as an optional zoom stage on top of normal zoom (change in options menu as shown below)

 - Fixed mouse sensitivity in normal zoom (now you can aim faster when in 2x zoom)

 - Proper orientation of the mech paper doll indicator for the player (Right on the paper doll corresponds to right side of your mech).

 - Minimap has been moved to the bottom center of the HUD along with heat, jumpjet and throttle bars

 - Parabolic effects.

 - Custom color set in the game options (including opacity setting)

 - New reticles

 - Mini heatbar on reticle

 - HTAL health bars for your mech
(cycle modes with F12 key)

 - There IS a 20% to 30% performance cost while the zoom window is active.
