NGX - Setup Camera Definitions in Aircraft.cfg

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Spent now 2 hours searching, but can't find the answer, so here I am asking the question myself :rolleyes:

 

In aircraft.cfg CameraDefinition are present for a lot of views, but not Captains seat view and FMC view to name two important ones.

 

What are the steps that I need to do to add these views myself...or does anyone out there have these added views to share for the broad community...and me? ^_^

 

All the best

 

Daniel

Any reason why you do not have the brilliant EZCA software ?

 

It gives you a hole cinematic experience including your own cockpit views ,aircraft and world cameras with an easy interface to setup.

 

A must have add-on in my opinion.

Thanks for your reply Michael.

 

The reason is 27 Euro. The NGX was the must have. When I can add the views for captain seat and FMC view - which I think is technically possible - then that satisfies my needs... for the time being.

 

Hope someone will have the data to copy into aircraft.cfg for this.. :rolleyes:

 

rgds,

Hi,

this is because the captain seat view is set in the camera.cfg found in %AppData%\Microsoft\FSX

It is the normal virtual camera view you get with F9 on your keyboard.

The FMC is a 2D-Subpanel which can not be coded in the aircraft.cfg.

 

But you are free to add your own camera views by copying on section, paste it with a new header.

You must alter the GUID entry, to get this to work.

A free GUID generator could be found here: http://www.guidgenerator.com/online-guid-generator.aspx

Generate this code with braces {}

 

To get a deep view into this take a look here:

Thank you Roland,

 

I will look at this and see if I can get it to work.

This is definately going to work. Thanks.

 

1) Would there be a way to set that after panning in a first view, then switching to a second view, then back to the first view, it will re-set the positions of the first view to original (e.f. captain face forward)? Did not see a switch for that in the docs or did not understand.

2) Is there an option in FSX that will display the current xyzpbh?

 

regards,

 

Daniel
