PC AC general questions...

    Hi guys...

    Although I`ve raced a bit in AC I`ve not tried to take screens for while so was just wondering what`s the best way to take them? What controls are used? Can keys be assigned for certain purposes? How do I get good angles etc?

    Plus one more thing. Can I set the AI to race themselves? IE player not driving a car, just having the AI race themselves. I ask that as sometimes it`s not easy for me to set up my wheel etc but could still get some screens that way.

    Sorry for all the questions. Thanks for any replies/help.

    I think you can hit F12 or F11 to get steam to take screen shots.
  3. I don't think you can launch a race without being in it, but you can always go to the pits and switch to the cameras on other cars.
    OR you could just load up a replay and start filming.

    Thanks for the replies guys... what about the controls for taking screens as in moving round the car to get the best angle etc? Up/down/left/right/zoom in-out etc?

    Iirc there used to be a "Photo Mode" or something similar but that doesn`t seem to be there now.
  5. enable dev apps

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\system\cfg

    open assetto_corsa.ini and put 1 on enable dev apps.

    Thanks Radu. What does this do? Enable the Photo Mode? I know it`ll enable dev apps but does this include PM?

    The f keys are your different cameras. F5 - F8 (I'm not exactly sure) switch to free roam camera, cycle through the car cameras (Go Pro like positions), or an external camera that rotates around the car.

    Photomode can now be called up from the replay screen, I don't think you need to enable dev apps anymore.

    Ok cheers for that info. How do I switch to free roam cam? Plus one other thing, what keys let you zoom in/out to get closer to the car etc?

    Sorry for all the noob questions guys but as I say, it`s a while since I screened in AC. :)

    Just go through the F keys, I can't remember which do which but all of them from F1 up to F8 (I think) do a different camera.

    Zoom is done through the mouse wheel. Moving is done with the arrow keys.

    Ok cheers Turk. It`s all starting to come back to me now. :cool:

    Al I have to find out now is how to make the camera go up/down (up - further away from the track. Down - closer to the track.)

    Is there a list of keys/functions for AC anywhere?

    I'm not sure, I've wanted to get into the photo/video making thing but never got around to it. I think to go up and down you just have to look up or down with the mouse and use the arrow keys to go forward back. I don't think there is an elevation key. I could be wrong though.

    Moving the mouse up/down seems to act like a "tilt" more than actually move the camera up/down. I can`t find an elevation type key either. :(

    There must be a way of going up/down though as I`ve done it in the past:

    the only way I can find of moving the camera up is to tilt the camera up and move forward.

    The big problem is there's no fine adjustment.

    Well I`m sure the cams can be moved up/down somehow. I`ll keep experimenting. :)
