Increases Camera Zoom Speed

Slash Commands

Video by Azeroth Underachiever:

FAQ
  • I stopped using FasterCamera, but the camera speed feels strange now ..
    You can use this script to reset to the default speed (and max distance). It's the same as clicking FasterCamera's "Defaults" button:
Code:
/run for _, v in ipairs({"cameraDistanceMoveSpeed", "cameraDistanceMax", "cameraDistanceMaxFactor"}) do SetCVar(v, GetCVarDefault(v)) end

Sorry Psycedelic, I made an error while adding new variables to the SavedVars
Code:
local defaults = {
	increment = 5,
	speed = 20,
	distance = 50,
}

local function OnEvent(self, event, ...)
	if event == "ADDON_LOADED" and ... == "FasterCamera" then
		FasterCameraDB2 = FasterCameraDB2 or defaults
	end
end
As you can see, the new defaults wouldn't get loaded, since FasterCameraDB2 already previously existed :S
This is sloppy of me, and I need to find a "future proof" way to add new SavedVars variables in

This should be fixed in v0.9; Sorry for the trouble

You got a point there, Corveroth
The max camera distance only reaches to 50 max, and anything above is just theoretical and will be limited back to 50

I will look if I can maybe simplify it by keeping cameraDistanceMaxFactor at 1,
and just call cameraDistanceMax "Max Camera Distance" ..

I hope my config gui isn't too bad =)

No, I don't know of any API or CVars that return the camera position/distance
Sorry, Aprikot
