problem with camera definition

Recommended Posts

Since Prepar 3d 3 ( now I use the fourth release) I receive this advise from simulator:

"Camera definitions need to have a valid category ( File--camera:\C:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects\Airplanes\Carenado Aero_Commander_500S\aircraft--CameraDefintion.XXX).....

what does it mean? How can I solve it?

In the file aircraft.cfg you'll find the camera definitions. In the spoiler, you find the ones in my file for this aircraft. They should be there by default. Maybe you see the one, not correct and may change it. Otherwise I recommend to just reinstall the aircraft.

Hi Dan and thanks for your fast answer. Strange thing that the problem is only from 4 to 8 camera definitions. I will compare your file with my file. Thanks yet for your help.
