Trouble with camera definition

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to modify the initial zoom setting for the left wing camera view in the default Baron. What is wrong with this line? (other than the lack of square brackets) I want the zoom to be .6 - same as the right wing view (which works).CameraDefinition.1Title = "Left Wing"Guid = {3A09FD6C-D406-4d8f-A5CD-FA4F5E0C12ED}Description = View from the left wing looking at the cockpitOrigin = CenterSnapPbhAdjust = SwivelSnapPbhReturn = FALSEPanPbhAdjust = SwivelPanPbhReturn = FALSETrack = NoneShowAxis = FALSEAllowZoom = TRUEInitialZoom = 0.6

SDK documentation says allowed values are 0.0 to 512.0 ... so my guess is that 1.0 would be OK, 2.0 would be OK, and 512.0 would be OK ... but that 0.6 might not be acceptable.The default is 1.0. You may not be able to specify a value less than 1.0 (even though the documentation suggests that you can).

The 0.6 should definitely work. I changed it to 0.6 in my .cfg and it works perfectly fine. Mine looks like this:[CameraDefinition.1]Title = "Left Wing"Guid = {3A09FD6C-D406-4d8f-A5CD-FA4F5E0C12ED}Description = View from the left wing looking at the cockpitOrigin = CenterSnapPbhAdjust = SwivelSnapPbhReturn = FALSEPanPbhAdjust = SwivelPanPbhReturn = FALSETrack = NoneShowAxis = FALSEAllowZoom = TRUEInitialZoom = 0.6ShowWeather = YesInitialXyz = -11.5, 0.6, -0.2InitialPbh = 5, 0, 85XyzAdjust = TRUECategory=AircraftClipMode=Minimum

Ryan.as noted, you should be able to set to your choice within the specified limits.Keep in mind, however, that the "initial zoom" is the value that will be used when you RESET with the {backspace} key.A saved flight starts with the saved (previous) zoom and a created flight should start with the zoom of the DEFAULT flight.If the default flight does not have a particular camera, I would expect that only in that case would it load with the "initial zoom" found in the definition.So, how did it come out?Loyd

My cfg is all funky, wordwrap isn't on or something. Anyway, I put your line in - its all fixed thank you.
