Zoom Issue (Again)

I decided to jump back into this game after awhile away and I do enjoy what changes I've seen so far, especially the fact I no longer have two Toothlesses and a cloned Groncicle. However, I noticed that when I use the PC program, I can no longer zoom out. I'm permanently zoomed all the way in and that's frankly annoying, especially since it did used to work.

I bebop on over to the web version, but in addition to that issue the initial loading screen (where it's a grey background) simply crawls along even though everything is up to date. (I use Firefox on Windows 7.) After it eventually loads, the rest of the loading moves along fine. Again, though, fully zoomed in and can't zoom out.

Is there any fix for this? I've tried using the End button and the mouse scroll and neither work, or rather, they work for a split second before the full zoom in returns.

Did you use the "pgup (page up)" button? if you have 1? Or page down?

I don't play the game anymore. If I'm online, it means I'm just fool'n around :)




I have graduated the School of Dragons to join a ravenous war within a divided kingdom. With the knowledge I've gained in the school, I was able to tame dragons faster than many of my peers. The very same dragons whom I have lost in coming skirmishes by enemy dragoneers. My hope nearly withered away after countless defeats and empty victories. I grew weary of the sight of my peers' bodies spread across the meadows during the aftermath of such battles. However, I hence remembered the reason I've joined the Windguard is to protect the very land that is threatened by humans and dragons alike.

Meeting Skaldi

In the cicil war, we commonly fight dragon riders of the opposing force. But sometimes, we deal with neutral bandits which rarely have used such mounts. Occasionally, I get dispatched to different regions to help catch thieving bandits or deliver supplies to towns that got recently raided. I've met a lone Ironwing during an investigation to a small village in the Aldrün Desert. He was a wild Scorched Frontier dragon that carried a piece of armor in his mouth that helped identify which tribe of bandits that have raided.

Normal dragon training techniques I've learned at the school doesn't usually work with the dragons here, but not only did it manage to have the dragon drop the armor, but convinced the lonely dragon to help find and catch the bandits.


*Disclaimer: Basically, I quit playing SoD to play Century: Age of Ashes. This bio is completely imaginary and therefore comepletely non-canon to the lore of Century and SoD, but based on the experience I had with the gameplay in kind of a joking manner. Yes, I have created C:AoA lore with my character mixed with SoD for fun, no you cannot judge me.

Just tried that and it's the same issue on the number pad, while PgUp/PgDown doesn't work at all. =/


It just seems with this game if it's not one issue it's another. I know it's common with these kinds of games and it's not game-breaking, but it does get frustrating.

Unrelated to the zoom issue.

Hey! I've been gone a while, too. I remember when you'd get a new Toothless for every membership you buy, and getting a duplicate Groncicle egg. Except, after all this time, I still have two Toothless clones and the extra Groncicle egg.

Personally, I don't mind. I just find it interesting that I still have it like this.


I have not experienced a zoom issue lately. I hope your problem gets resolved.

I sent a message to the admins detailing that issue for them to pass on the dev team or whoever to fix it. I'm not sure when it was fixed, but I think I sent the message in November so sometime between then and two days ago it was fixed. I had had sent a message months earlier, too, which I figured just got lost in the deluge of messages they get daily. 


I was honestly surprised I got to keep Toothless at all, since I'm not a member any more and was grandfathered in because I had been a member before the change to not keeping Toothless. It would've sucked to have lost him, but I would have understood. The same with the double Groncicle, if I had to lose both, so be it. I'm really glad I didn't, though. My main issue was that I'd get accused of cheating with having the second Toothless, plus the him and the other Groncicle taking up space in my stables.
