Bug notice concerning CameraPositionX and Global Cameras

Recommended Posts

Hello @ll,

the latest version 1.22 of CameraPosition X has developed an unfortunate bug:

Creating or editing GLOBAL cameras will disable the built-in AI traffic camera ([CameraDefinition.010] in cameras.cfg).

Aircraft cameras are not affected.

A hotfix is on its way.

Work around:

If this happens to you, you will notice that you can no longer switch to an AI aircraft with the in-sim view menu. The camera will always look back at your own aircraft.

There are two ways to remedy this:

1. Revert back to your original cameras.cfg:
In C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX || C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v... there is a file called "cameras.cfg_orig". This is your     original cameras.cfg as it was before you used CameraPositionX on it. Delete or rename "cameras.cfg" and rename the "cameras.cfg_orig" back to "cameras.cfg".

or

2. Correct the affected parameter
In your cameras.cfg there is the [CameraDefinition.010]. Inside this definition change
"TargetCategory = None"
to
"TargetCategory = Container"

To repeat: aircraft cameras are not affected, even if you revert the cameras.cfg back to its original state. Aircraft cameras are saved in the individual aicraft.cfg files.

Sorry about the inconvenience. 

Best regards
