Changelogs
NOTE:
RTX Raytracing is now supported


NOTE 2:
This mod MUST be installed the traditional way through Paks folder (and not through in game mod manager)




Description:
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





Features:
 - 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)


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