Joycam 0.3.1

Controller input for AC's free cameras

  1. Stereo
    This is an app to allow you to control the free camera in Assetto Corsa like a drone. You can use it with any XInput controller, typically XBox 360 or newer.

    Default controls are:
    Left stick - move forward and yaw
    Right stick - move sideways and pitch
    Triggers - move up and down
    Dpad - roll
    You can adjust this in config.ini

    INSTALLATION:
    Extract contents of 7z to the folder assettocorsa\apps\python\stereo_joycam. Typically the full path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\apps\python\stereo_joycam\ but depends on your Steam install.
    In the 'General' tab in Assetto Corsa, enable the app.

    USAGE:
    Enable the free camera in system/cfg/assetto_corsa.ini by setting ALLOW_FREE_CAMERA=1
    Hit F7 in game to switch to the free camera, or push Activate in the app.

    To adjust settings, find 'stereo_joycam' on the app pane (far right) and click to open the app.

    CONFIG.INI (in app folder):
    Controls -
    available options are
    l_thumb_x, l_thumb_y - x and y of left thumb stick
    r_thumb_x, r_thumb_y - x and y of right thumb stick
    triggers - combined trigger input (right is positive)
    dpad_x, dpad_y - x and y of d pad (left/up are positive)
    rblb - shoulder buttons (left is positive)
    none - don't map to this control
    Direction -
    Can be used to invert axes, just switch from 1 to -1.
    Speed -

    Awesome idea. Is it possible to add a boost for the drone which you can activate with an extra button?

    Some guys including me from ACRL (Assetto Corsa Racing League) are doing some Best-OF Videos after each race, I'm currently working with your mod, such a huge camera improvement!

    Great job, awesome app. When i was using this app, i got small idea... Is it possible to record "drone" path to example .csv file and then use it as replay camera spline? ;)

      Good question... I think it's possible but couldn't be very userfriendly, cause the app doesn't know the initial direction the camera's facing. So you'd have no way to line it up with the track.

      If you just want generic ones like "5m up" that Kunos makes those are more doable, you could just disable the yaw/pitch/roll controls and log the changes in position. I'm not actually sure what the timestep between lines in the spline is though.

    Thanks so much for making this app. This is going to open up so many opportunities for content creators, i'm sure that with this app Assetto Corsa will turn into a much bigger creative outlet!

    Love it! Amazing as usual, Stereo.

    Is it possible to have the pitch just control the pitch of the camera, but not have the camera path follow it? e.g like a drone view straight down 90 degrees but while moving forward, not down?

      Author's Response
      Python interface is a bit limited so I can't tell what the current pitch of the camera is, and the controls are actually slightly weird - there's move forward/backward in camera space, move sideways in camera space, but move up in world space.

      One thing this means is that when the camera's pointing straight down there's no way to move it forward in world space - moving it forward goes down, moving it up goes up.
