Issue with outside views

Recommended Posts

I'm using the FSlabs a320 and have been using chaseplane since it came out. I'm on v0.1.627 alpha and when I click the "outside" tab the view just looks at the sky and I can't find the plane. I've not had this issue before.

Hi Evan,

 

Do you have an "Aircraft Misconfigured" error after loading the aircraft?

I've experienced this as well. Like Keven said, restart the simulator after ChasePlane reconfigured the aircraft. If it still happens, I double-tap the shortcut key for the wing view. It'll first show the "empty" screen, and then the actual wing view.

here also: in cinematic mode the sim did not switch trough the "outside-gate" so the cockpit mode is on at outside view.

I published an update correcting the issue.
Thanks everyone for their reports & feedback!

Keven

I had the same problem, not only with FSlabs A320, also with the Piper (and i guess with any aircraft) and its been solved by the 0.1636 update, after a restart.

Thanks Keven!

For the static view issue it has never worked for me I don't know why ?

For the external view issue I've tried as said reinstalling, removing camera.cfg, restarting sim, then closing and starting chase plane then sim as indicated and nothing worked :mellow: Now the only thing working are cockpit views but they are zoomed in and I can't zoom out anymore since update so cockpit views aren't really working either :/

Can you generate a report from CP's preferences and post it here?

Relaunch ChasePlane to fix your cameras.cfg file. It seems from the report that your sim generated the file a few minutes before the report was generated.
