Hi, welcome to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Destroy the Duty company page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Uberfuzzy (Talk) 10:07, 27 May 2009


Trying to update an image..

I was trying to update the image for the Browning High Power with a render that I made of the actual model, but it keeps breaking the page layout whenever I do.

I have reverted back to the previous file for the time being.

Have you uploaded the actual image file? Also please sign your posts, makes it easier for me to identify who's posting. SHIELD unit 22:05, May 24, 2010 (UTC)


I apologize, I'm kinda new to wiki-ing.

I did upload, and when I did I chose to overwrite the old image, and even though it had asked me what size it would like to limit it to in an article, it seemed to completely ignore that and display the full size one. Nige111 06:50, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Ok I've gotten around that, your image has been re-uploaded SHIELD unit 07:05, May 25, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing the image. :) Nige111 16:04, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding 'real-world' weapon pictures

Hi! In my opinion there is no need for uploading pictures of 'real-world' guns. In-game screenshots of weapons should suffice. And by the way, don't forget to tag every uploaded screenshot taken from game with correct license template: in this case it should be {{fairuse}}. It saves a lot of work. Octurion 08:04, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Pointing out:

I came up with a theory for Clear Sky's fate after CS. I know it's particularly not something to put in the Wiki but here's the possibility: Clear Sky faction is much similar to the Marked Ones sent out by the Monolith faction and C-C. After have failing their job of killing Strelok, Monolith soldiers or other factions start to turn heavily aggressive to Clear Sky, ripping it to shreds and having Lebedev dissappear (noting the similarities of voice and form of the C-C hologram, It must be Lebedev.) The only survivors either assimilate into other factions, or escaped the Zone.

User:LonerDeacon - I do think that's the most likely fate of Clear Sky - without Scar's combat ability and Lebedev's leadership, I imagine they were forced to pull out due to encroaching Renegades and Bandits.

The fact Nimble's aware of a UN Observer force operating in the zone (and procures weaponry from the observers, like the FN2000 in Call of Pripyat) - and the suggestion from NPCs in Clear Sky that the faction had outside support may mean that the UN tried an aggressive approach (suppported by CS's relatively peaceful mandate and emphasis on blue uniforms, as well as multi-national weapons), and after the epic failure are sitting on the sidelines as observers. It's entirely possible chaps like Cold, Beanpoleov, and others who did not follow the mobilised forces into Limansk may be alive on the fringe of the Zone, if they weren't slain by vengeful Duty/Freedom/Bandits en route.

User:Tidus93 - Yes. However, I think Clear Sky was an indirect helper of C-Consiousness.Mayhap part of it, without knowing.


Hey gais

Is it me or is it that some of the recently uploaded images are somehow disappearing....by that I mean the file name exists but there is no image. SHIELD unit 05:25, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Some servers were probably down. Octurion 14:47, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Uploads

Few general tips how to improve the quality of your uploads:

  • Capturing images:
    • Turn off rs_stats (rs_stats off or rs_stats 0) feature in your console. That should remove that awful (and definitively not needed) info about your in-game coordinates.
    • Disable "Crosshair target distance" feature. (Main Menu -> Options -> Game)
    • Disable NPC Name Identification (Main Menu -> Options -> Game)
  • Uploading:
    • Do not upload pictures depicting modded content. (Like this)
    • Crop your pictures.
    • Choose appropriate name: Descriptive, not too long or too short, unique.
    • Tag every uploaded screen with correct licence template. {{Fairuse}} should be sufficient for screenshots taken from games.
    • Provide categories.
    • Provide source. From where was the picture taken (game/website/etc...)

Here is the formatting:

== Summary ==
Short description. ([[Source game]])
== Licensing: ==
{{LicTemplate))

[[Category:Category #1]]

I think it is high time to discuss some rules and policies.

If you need some help, ask. Octurion 14:47, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Why change the Yanov entry?

You don't have to give the Fine Tools to Nitro specifically, so why mention him in the entry?

AnomalousStalker 12:48, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Thx for the pic edit on the Colonel Petrenko page.

Userboxes

Hi. I've imported Userbar template from the en.wiki. You can find the template here - [1] Octurion 11:00, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

I see, thanks SHIELD unit 12:56, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

Stop removing useful edits please

I am very displeased to find that two of my edits have been undone with no real reason behind removing them. Both of these edits were totally relevant to the topic and served to provide accurate information on the topics. The pages were the MP5 and Browning Hi-Power. If the edits provide useful information and serve to make the articles more satisfying and interesting to read. Most articles on this wikia are stubs, and reverting them back to stubs after a user adds relevant and useful information, as well as beefing up the article, is neither nice or productive. At least provide a reason. Gesz 23:52, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

We only need a short summary for weapons since this isn't a full-time gunpedia. We don't need that much fluff in weapons.

SHIELD unit 00:11, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

While I do agree with you Shield, I think you should have just trimmed Gesz's edits down a bit and offered your objection to their length in the edit summary, rather than revert them without a word as if they were vandalism. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 11:47, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki color scheme

Hey man, congrats on the promotion to bureaucrat! I've been meaning to discuss with you the wiki's current color scheme. While I do like the fact that it's distinctive, I find light colored text on a dark background to be very harsh on the eyes (especially during prolonged editing) and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. I think a new color scheme is in order. Are you open to the idea? --MattyDienhoff «talk» 11:47, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Well thanks and about the color scheme, I haven't really thought about it much as I'm contented with it but we're open for suggestions. Though I'm still mastering how to use monaco and HTML so I'm not the one for the job just yet. Ask Octurion, he knows more than me about these things. SHIELD unit 12:33, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

I'll start the work on the new skin soon. Octurion 10:39, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

Is it possible to upload pictures without putting them in a page?

Hello people, i just want to ask if its possible to upload a large amount of weapon pictures without putting them in a page? I currently have very little time to upload and place every picture one by one on the exact page, but i do have all of the weapons pictures.

Yes, you can. Just upload the images and leave it at that, I'm sure we'll find uses for them. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 02:35, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
Thats the problem, how do i do it?
Click on the "Upload a new image" link in the menu on the left. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 08:10, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

RE: image reverting

Oh, so thats what you want... At least because the ingame images are lower-quality and turned... For example, SVD. Also, the only way to take a picture of some gun without any upgrades is to make in-game snapshot. If you open a model, it will be "fully-upgraded" gun. The Call of Pripyat repair icons are lower-quality and with not all addons removed. I just want to make the encyclopedia better and original... Besides, Boredgunner thanked me for the images and said that they are "exactly what we need" when i started uploading them.

User:lafoxxx 13:57, May 28 2010 (UTC)

While we do appreciate your images, it's kinda better to show the actual thing as seen in the game rather than a real-world picture of the gun. But if we don't have the in-game model, the real world shot is still preferable. SHIELD unit 14:58, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Greetings

hey bro, thx for the welcome message,
i did have 1 particular question for you while i made my post about vorpals stash yesterday , i was planning on adding a picture by picture walkthrough to make it easier for people but for some reason when i uploaded the image i had trouble adding it to the page
i chose one of the layouts , uploaded the pic, but when i added it to the page all i saw was 2 horizontal lines ( maybe this is where the image shouldve been loaded/pasted to ) and no picture ( which was about 140kbs) , it was small so i know the problem didnt come from incorrect size/res or delay from uploading.
if possible, please let me know if this has been a common error/problem with other people and i can try to solve it myself without inconveniencing you further.

Martha

hi just wanting to know if there is a missing iron sight on the Martha in SoC

thanks

From the few times I used the Martha in SoC, it has a pair of Iron sights. SHIELD unit 02:29, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Confirmed, try a reload or a save from before you use it , that should fix it. patched to 1.0005 ? or 06 ?

Thank you!

Thanks for the welcome! I hope i won't get into trouble and exceed the community's expectations :) Chikubi 04:05, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Well it's an automated response but sure, welcome aboard. SHIELD unit 04:22, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

hi ,

a quick Q, i had the idea of leaving pic's that contain mission info on some pages , would it be okay to post those screenshots ? and if yes then where ? i have a few hundred screenshots with usefull info that would be a nice add for the site.


have a nice day , Dabur 23:43, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Sure, just put them up properly on said pages. SHIELD unit 02:31, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

okay with that said, how about a tab on the top right just for pics ? is it possible ?


Yeah just list "|right" on the image tab. SHIELD unit 02:57, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

http://stalker.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Animals top right you have two tabs ' category ' and ' discussion ' how about a third one thats for pics ? Dabur 03:15, June 8, 2010 (UTC)


oh yes the white and blue works fine , only on some of the weapons info cards on the right side of the screen the darkblue letters are hard to be seen on the blue background.
I'll keep that in mind SHIELD unit 02:57, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

for the rest the white and blue works fine one several screens, wide or not , high def or not, nice contrast but not painfull ( cause its blue ) for the eyes, nice idea ! Dabur 03:15, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

animal section

the animal section only has the crow in it

http://stalker.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Animals what do you think of expanding it ?

have a nice day

Can't really expand it since the Crow is the only animal in the zone who isn't mutated. SHIELD unit 02:24, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

it just struck me after i saw it again, mistook it for ' mutants ' , @@@##


Making of STALKER Clear Sky

Hello SHIELD UNIT, I wanted to ask you if we can use information from these videos about how the developers created Clear Sky

Or put them somewhere on the wiki where everyone could see them.Charcharo Explorer 05:17, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I'll get on that. SHIELD unit 10:02, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

SEREG

Hi SHIELD UNIT please remove this article and maybe also ban IP that maded that article,there is nothing written in that artictle.

I've banned him for the appropriate offenses but I'm not going to edit-protect the entire wiki. I don't want to hassle any anon contributors with good intentions. SHIELD unit 09:12, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Indeed others would pay for the actions of one, ...

I was thinking, is it easy to undo what such people do ? is there a back up ? Thanks for fixing it ! Dabur 09:47, June 20, 2010 (UTC)


Be it media wiki or wikia, all changes are cached and can be reverted anytime in the history section of the page so vandalism is really pointless here. SHIELD unit 10:04, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

PS , i dont care for the flaming, but the work of several people that gets deleted and replaced with the word - p..p - i take offense to that !


Yeah, vandals with enough sense of humor to make me laugh are in short supply these days. SHIELD unit 10:04, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

I can imagine that, .... if you do a search on the IP it seems it has been banned a few times on the internet , ....

By the way do you check your email ?

Questions...

Heya, could i get clarification on the points raised at Talk:Artifacts and Talk:List of artifacts ?


Much obliged Chikubi 06:47, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


You want to revise the artifact list by re-ordering them by effectiveness? SHIELD unit 09:57, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


Yup, but only for the 'by side effect' section, while keeping the 'by game' section alphabetical.

Also, some artifacts exist in all three games, but the order in which the games are listed varies from artie to artie. Could the community come to a concensus whether they want them listed by chronological (i.e. CS, SoC, CoP) or date of release (i.e. SoC, CS, CoP?)?

I personally favour the date of release list, since that way the evolution of stats is clearly visible from game to game. A great example is the Kolobok (Artifact) whos stats were changed from SoC to CS and continued into CoP. Chikubi 15:49, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, your suggestions are real nice ones. The chronological order is probably better. SHIELD unit 00:05, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

other animals

hi ,

one can hear an owl and crickets , should they be included as animals ?

have a nice day !


On one hand we can hear them but on the other we can't actually see them........I'll ponder on this. SHIELD unit 23:47, June 26, 2010 (UTC)


hmmm , well the lab rat is included , so why not ? its part of the game so it should be included if you want a complete breakown af all the things of the game , ....

include a soundfile ??

You do have a point there. Yeah it should be done. SHIELD unit 23:57, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

ok . i have some other thoughts as well , do you check your email ?

Not very often but yeah
SHIELD unit 03:23, June 27, 2010 (UTC)


btw , since more and more sites are going down that have info lets all work together and make the wiki stalker THE place to be for info , ...


That's what we're trying to aim for SHIELD unit 03:23, June 27, 2010 (UTC)


and there is some not so good feeback on the gsc site for the wiki , many people simply still dont know this site , get it know , .....

Kinda strange since there's virtually a wikia for every almost video game and TV show on this planet. About publicity, I'll figure out something. SHIELD unit 03:23, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

ever since i put the link at the bottom of game related emails and in live messenger talks more and more get to know it in the las few months from people that i know , now if people play stalker for 2 or more years and they have not heard or visited the site i ask why , most say simply that they dont know about it ,..... there are plenty of good russian sites , but on english there is nothing left , since this site is more then above average why not make it top level ? even posters with 2500 posts on the gsc forums dont know it , ..... ( ! )

since i speak several languages , how about a french version ? just a thought , french , german , spanish would be the main languages , in spain stalker was released very late , only know players get to know the game there , .... and we are mid 2010 !!

oh yes , the rats , check out this thread , it was included in very early builds , but thats it

problems ?

hi ,

i noticed this weekend no mails are sent , problems ? yep followed pages that had changes and logged out at that time also , ....

loading is strange also , when in the middle of the night , 2-5 am local in europe no one else should be online or just a few and the pages sometimes takes minutes to load , ....

vdsl con and its great , since the site worked fine this week, what gives ?

have a nice evening Dabur 21:00, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki layout

Is the new layout your doing? I dig the theme, but there's a GIGANTIC problem, namely the fixed width format. Right now I have this huge blank space (okay, an image from Build 1935, but still) on either side of my screen and a really, really tiny space in which to read articles. It's pretty maddening.

Weapon names

Heya, I read the discussion on the main page about this, but there seems to be no conclusion there. Why on earth was the M203 given the wrong image and name?

GSC never did make an official documentation on how they modeled the in-game gear so I'm gonna guess an oversight on their part.

SHIELD unit 04:58, July 7, 2010 (UTC)


I thought this was a video game page, not a 'gunpedia' as you said, why don't we give artifacts names that we think are correct as well? "Manufactured by Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft, the Gewehraufsatz 97 (incorrectly named in-game as an M203 grenade launcher)"

Then I realized that it would be hypocritical of me since I'm responsible for much of the weapon related fluff here. What I'm implying is that weapon descriptions shouldn't be too fluffy. A proper way would be to include only a short bio of the gun, a small part of it's history and throw in a bit of trivia that pertains to it's unique features. Like the AN-94 article, that's a good example. A gunpedia style description would contain too much unnecessary information pertaining to the gun and not really that relevant to the game like it's complete history, a textbook description about it's real life stats and kinda like what you'd find in a real firearm article.

SHIELD unit 06:42, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

I saw you cleared out Gesz's contribution to the wiki entirely due to it being fluff, does this not count as fluff as well?

I didn't clear it out, I re-did it by removing some of the excess fluff....well at first IO cleared it out then I re-did it after thinking what to do after the complaint.

SHIELD unit 04:58, July 7, 2010 (UTC)


Kolobok would be the first to be turned into 'anomalous object named after a fairy tale character who was spherical and made of dough' Is there any way of getting a vote going or something?

Adding some trivia on artifacts is good or anything for that matter is good just as long as it's true.

SHIELD unit 06:34, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Its a little presumptuous to think that the developers wanted to name their nato grenade launchers Gewehraufsatz 97 instead of m203 but due to a slip of the hand ended up with m203.

That or GSC is a little off with how they replicate ther guns that they unknowingly cross-over features. Look at the SiG SG-550 for example, it has a 30 round mag in-game but it's model is only for a 20 round mag.

SHIELD unit 04:58, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Chikubi 00:20, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

In that case should we go through all pages such as TRs 301 and replace every M203 Grenade Launcher link with SIG Gewehraufsatz 97 grenade launcher for consistency?

Chikubi

hi , if you ask 30 people if they have heard about the SIG Gewehraufsatz 97 grenade launcher none will answer they know it , .... but most will know the M203 , ....

just two cents Dabur 16:49, July 7, 2010 (UTC) have a nice one


Any luck on letting us know whether we should change the links for consistency?

Chikubi 02:16, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, change them for the sake of consistency. Just label them as Gewehraufsatz 97. SHIELD unit 02:23, July 10, 2010 (UTC)


And there I was, hoping that this final act of deviating from canon names would bring you back into game oriented mentality since the current name is so far from the intended one.
I still feel that the page names should be canon as well as all links within articles, except for a short reference to its inspiration at the start of each article. Is it possible to set up a poll on this issue?
I do see your point. In the scripts the 'nade launcher is designated as wpn_addon_grenade_launcher_m203 but took the change without thinking. Someone does need to point out why it's a 97 than an M203 but it's probably going to be listed on trivia.

SHIELD unit 03:55, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also, should this conversation be moved to somewhere more visible so that users who don't visit your userpage can also participate?

Well....yeah

SHIELD unit 03:55, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Since this wiki rejects information on game modification...

We do accept some game mod info. However to avoid contributors getting the idea that this place is a way to advertise mods: it's mostly confined to cut-content information or when the situation call for it.

SHIELD unit 03:55, July 10, 2010 (UTC)


...doesnt even accept images from modified games, why does it contain modified names for each gun? Chikubi 02:47, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Images from modified games are acceptable on a certain level (which needs to be written on a rule page of sorts). While modded images are discouraged, it is acceptable just as long as they don't heavily deviate from the original one like Different armor skins(Yes I'm responsible for Ara but I'm trying to find a replacement and I lost my copy of SoC.), weapons than don't remotely resemble the original one and more along those lines. Take Cpt. Petrenko for example, now he's using a modded Abakan and accessories(Guessing Rebirth Abakan and Attachments retextured respectively.) but it still does look the the vanilla Abakan(just having better detail) and our focus is on the character than the weapon. And yes I do sometimes upload images with modded weapons but as much as possible I try to shadow them out if they deviate significantly from the original one.

Remove all his missions from his page and put it right here with each mission in it's own article: List of optional missions in Shadow of Chernobyl. Copypasta should suffice for now.

SHIELD unit 02:05, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Latest issues

Hey SHIELD, two issues arose lately. One is the grenade launcher naming issue, one I hope I clarified on the talk page for the item: the texture name, world model and attachment system of the grenade launcher in SHOC, CS and COP are identical with the SIG Gewehraufsatz 97, and have little in common with the Colt Defense M203.

Well, you have proven everything about it not being an M203 launcher. So it goes, but it is still called an M203 when calling it by it's in-game name.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Second is a little more complex: Dabur has been spamming links to the Zone Survival Guide in every item article on the wiki. I've been consistently removing those that add nothing of value to the articles, leaving those that do (locations) intact. I've tried explaining the decision to Dabur, but he refuses to understand my point. In order to prevent edit warring, I was forced to block Dabur for 24h, until we can reach a concrete decision as to whether or not link spamming the ZSG is permitted.

I understand the decision. Hopefully he'll understand the action and realize why he was blocked. Also we have a Ban template.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I have nothing against ZSG, it's a great resource for the wiki and STALKER players, but I don't think it's necessary to link to it from every single page of the wiki, especially since we don't get any real benefit from it, as the Guide is not in any way affiliated with us (though it should be, in my opinion).

True, it is becoming more like advertisement than informing. And a joint-op is interesting.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Bottom line, we need a concrete policy on external links. Mine is "only link, if the target website expands the article, not repeats information already included".

Yeah we do, along with an entire rulebook that needs doing. I should probably get on that.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I am aware a temp-block might be too harsh of a measure, but I think it was the best possible course of action, given the circumstances.

Well, once in a while we do have to use our weapons to enforce order.

7-19-10

You mind being a little more specific?
SHIELD unit 00:29, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

this is as specific as I can get,( Normally, access to the area is initially prohibited until the player completes Sidorovich's mission to retrieve the case from the Argoprom facility, but the requirement can be circumvented by exploiting a glitch. This can be achieved by simply pushing against the gate or shooting it open. Doing this, however, will cause the soldiers guarding the gate to become hostile, and shooting them will invoke the wrath of the Duty members within. The guards may be avoided, permitting access without having to make the trek to Agropom for the case.) he replaced my writing with this sh!t, on the rostok page

Odd, your edit isn't logged on Rostok's revision history or your contributions. In fact your last article edit was for the Chaser 13

Grenades article

Hey Shield, just wondering what you think should be done about the issue raised by Hyperion on Talk:Grenades.
Chikubi 09:42, July 24, 2010 (UTC)


"Grenade" is too much of a generic term since it can also include shells or other types of ammunition. I think it should be renamed as Hand Grenades.

stadium

hey man, this wiki says you can't explore the stadium in pripyat, but on my first time there I got in with no problem.

when you get to the entrence to the stadium, turn left and go up the steps. keep going left and you should be at the last gate into the stadium. It is closed but you can just slip between the bars that are farthest apart and you are in the stadium. there is so much cool stuff in the stadium that you could make a new page about it. there three monolith guys with rocket launchers, about 30 rodents, a pseudogiant, 5 snorks, and there is a Sh!tload of artifacts, and when you want out, you just slip back between the bars. oh and there

are so many springboards and vortex that if you do not have a lot of medics, you will probably die. the roads and the space by the downed helicopter are the only safe spots. but overall, its worth it. loyal-to-duty 7-25-10

Yes you can enter the stadium, just not through the main entrance. The edges of the stadium as well as the seats are perfectly safe, at least from anomalies. In the stadium you have the three Monolithians with rocket launchers as previously stated, a Preacher also watches the stadium and when you get near the exit, two Pseudogiants come out. There are plenty of Tushkano and artifacts, most notably Night Stars. Boredgunner 22:15, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

just saying , this wiki did not make that subject too clear, loyal-to-duty 7-25-10

IRC and IGN names

Thanks for logging in to see that it actually functions Shield, unfortunately i wasn't looking at my screen at the time that you joined i wasnt able to react. However, if you register a nickname with the freenode server, then i can give you operator capabilities. I was getting advice online from Tigernose and she/he was giving brilliant ideas on how to implement the IRC channels, specifically for debates and discussions. Check out their IRC wikia page to see how it would work. Granted, we have a smaller community than them, but give it time (and stalker 2)! P.S. you can get some genuinely good advice on there:


[[2010:08:19:20:53:24] <Tigernose> The wiki should be documenting things from an in-game perspective, as it is not Wikipedia. Therefore, you should always put the game first in article titles and bolded names in the article to keep as professional and accurate as possible


[[2010:08:19:20:54:24] <Tigernose> Often times, wikis that don't go the professional way are looked down towards and then this branch off into unofficial rules of editing that just catch on, which may potentially damage the article's accuracy


[[2010:08:19:20:54:31] <Tigernose> I've seen it happen before


[[2010:08:19:20:55:07] <Tigernose> So you want to keep as true to the game as possible, yet consider practically via redirects for example

So basically, enough of the ridiculous name changes... e.g. Sphere-08 tactical helmet

Rebind your quick access key in the game(F1,F2,F3,F4) and go to your Call of Pripyat user folder and find the user.LTX file located in either your user folder or public folder and paste this:
bind cam_1 kF1
bind cam_2 kF2
bind cam_3 kF3
bind cam_zoom_in kADD
bind cam_zoom_out kSUBTRACT

If you're using Win7: your CoP folder should be in Public documents.
