Zoom in 2-D and VC

Recommended Posts

I have tried to make the zoom of the view out of the forward window of the 2-D cockpit and VC both 0.70. I changed the values in the two camera.cfg files, but only the VC-zoom changed. The 2-D stays at 1.0 zoom. Does anyone knows how to change this???

Wish i could figure out how to do that in fs9. There is no .40 setting when hitting the minus key to reduce zoom so i always have to go in the menu in view settings and change it there every time...real pain.

The only one remaining is this one:VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=4.800, 0.000, 0.000All others are ignored, such as this one:VIEW_FORWARD_ZOOM=0.700 :-bang However, you CAN quite easily add a custom camera definition for any aircraft in the aircraft.cfg file which will override the "global default" settings:{CameraDefinition.001} //replace with square brackets in the aircraft.cfg fileTitle = CockpitGuid = {B1386D92-4782-4682-A137-738E25D1BAB5}Description = This is the description of the cockpit viewOrigin = CockpitShowPanel = YesSnapPbhAdjust = OrdinalSnapPbhReturn = TruePanPbhAdjust = OrdinalPanPbhReturn = TrueTrack = NoneShowAxis = FrontOnlyAllowZoom = TRUEInitialZoom = 0.70SmoothZoomTime = 2.0ShowWeather = YesXyzAdjust = TRUEShowLensFlare=FALSECategory = CockpitHotKeySelect=2

You have to do it every time with the old - and = keys. They do work a little better in FSX than FS9.

Have you tried loading the default flight, making the changes you wantand then saving the flight as a new default flight?Thats how I changed the spot view zoom. I wasn't able to get any ofthe changes to cameras.cfg to have any affect. there are two versionsof the config file and I changed both but still nothing and so I changed itin the default flight. That worked. didn't try it on 2d zoom though.

I copied the camera-definition which Bill Leaming described to my C172 aircraft.cfg file. But nothing changed, still 2D-zoom 1.0.Then I changed the zoom with the wheelmouse and saved it as the default flight. I opened the FLT-file of this flight and did what is described in the post onhttp://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?...e_cameras_views, chapter "Change the aircraft.cfg camera definition". Copied over the translation and rotation to InitialXyz and InitialPbh.I also copied the VC cameradefinition of the camera.cfg file to the C172 aircraft.cfg file, start the flight, adjust the look on the panel, saved it as the default flight and the rest as above.At last I got what I want!!!
