Default Periscope zoom level bug found and fixed !

Hi everybody, i'm mich73b , new here on subsim ,i've been playing sub command,dangerous waters, silent hunter 3 , and now i'm on Cold Waters...

i would like to share to everybody my first post , i'm pretty sure i found and solve a bug may be nobody notice:

currently periscope zoom magnification is up to x8 times max (i check on many submarines Seawolf,Permit,Han...),

i was playing a bit about possibility of modding the game , and when i take a look inside the code, there is a x16 times magnification level possible :




but there was a bug on how zoom incrementation level was coded,so it cannot reach case 3 (zoom x16), that i solved it by fixing one parameter from 2 to 3 :




so now the code is working and can go to case n°3 : zoom x16 ! , see screenshots below for comparison of zoom x8 and zoom x16

zoom x8


zoom x16



you can fix this bug easily if you know how to open a .dll with a NET debugger/assembly editor software , i don't know if i can share the fixed .dll here ?

hope you appreciate it !
