Note (Please Read)
- Adjusted "Dash-Cam" position can't be saved because it is not supported officially as default.
- This Mod expands (maximizes) the range of the "Seat Adjustment" and makes the enhanced camera control possible.
< Seat Adjustment (Camera Control) - Range >
- Enabled "Seat Adjustment" & "Adjustable FOV" (not only for Head-Cam but also) for Dash-Cam.
- 4 FOV packages.
FOV 25.0-35.0 (mainly for Triple-Screen)
FOV 35.0-45.0 (mainly for Triple-Screen)
FOV 45.5-55.5 (optimized for 16:9 aspect ratio Single Monitor)
FOV 55.0-70.0 (optimized for 16:9 aspect ratio Single Monitor)
In each package, every driving camera (except "Chase Cameras") has the same FOV range.
So, once you have set the FOV in "Preferences" menu, you can use the same FOV for all driving cameras.
- The camera control range of each car is optimized for FOV 25.0 - 70.0.
- 3 lateral positions
Semi-Center (FOV 45.5-55.5 only)
- Enabled the "Driver's Head" for "Center & Semi-Center Cameras".
The Driver's Helmet can be displayed. This makes it possible to play with "On-board" style camera or "Over-the-Shoulder" style camera.
You can enable/disable the Driver's Helmet (Cockpit Driver) in "Preferences" menu (as described above).
- I could play the "Online Events" with this Mod and record my time on the Leaderboard.
This Mod does not affect the physics at all, so it seems to be ok to play online with this Mod.

Sample: Adjusted Cameras
Codemasters added "Seat Adjustment" in their official "Modern Masters Update". And it makes what I wanted to do with Camera Mod possible. (Thanks to Codemasters for their support!)
Here are several examples.
<Dash-Cam: adjusted to "Driver's view with HUD Dial">
<Center Cam: adjusted to "TV On-board style view">
<Semi-Center: adjusted to "Over-the-Shoulder view">
<Center Cam: adjusted to "Center Dash-Cam">
(Suggested by Vangelis pargiNOS. Thank you, pargiNOS! )
<Center Cam: adjusted to "Roof Cam with Tilt-Down">
<Dash-Cam: Now it's possible to adjust the fore-aft position of the Bonnet-Cam when changed the FOV>
DiRT Rally - Enhanced Camera Control Mod 4.2
Enhanced Camera Control Mod (formerly known as Alternative Camera Pack) for "DiRT Rally"
Excellent rating for excellent work! Especially with this 4.0 update it is just what I am looking for with obvious care in design/execution. I appreciate the great documentation and previews/references included in the package, too.
Thanks to the author and everyone who helped him get this must-have resource to the point it is today.
As a man who constantly edit some cams, in this or that game, I really appreciate this. I know how much work is put into this. For all us sake.
Btw... except this really "must-have" mod, I must say that your description here is also a top-notch! :D
A perfect example what one read me should look like. So informative and so.... tidy. :D
