editing .cam file has no effect?

Discussion in 'RACE 07 Mods' started by Matt Geddes, Oct 31, 2009.

  1. Hi all, I wanted to somehow change the seating position in the cockpit view of GTR evo to be further forward than most cars allow.

    After some searching on the forum I think I understand how to edit the .CAM file to affect the changes I want, but after editing it, there seems to be no change in game...

    BTW; I'm trying to edit the .cam files for the GTR2forGTRevo addon. the location of the file I've been editing is:
    c:programfiles/steam/steamapps/race07/gamedata/teams/gtr2/gt/ferrari 575/ferrari_575.cam

    here is the section that i believe controls the cockpit cam:

    LocalCam=COCKPIT // Cockpit cam - Karsten Borchers 2007
    Fov=(82.500000, 70.000000)
    Color=(164, 218, 249)
    ClipPlanes=(0.1000, 1500.000000)
    Size=(1.000000, 1.000000)
    Center=(0.500000, 0.500000)
    RadiusLimits=(0.000000, 0.000000)
    OrientationRate=(999.000000, 999.000000, 999.000000)
    PositionOffset=(0.000000, 0.000000, -0.550000)
    OrientationOffset=(-0.100000, 0.000000, 0.000000)

    I changed the last value in the"positionoffset" line to be -0.55 instead of 0.000000, and the position of the camera in cockpit view hasn't changed at all. anyone know why this might be?
    am I editing the wrong place? doing it incorrectly? - or maybe there is a way to increase the adjustability of the "seat position"?

    any help would be great, thanks a million guys

    Use your mousebuttons (click left or right) and move your mouse back and forth when you are in the game and you don't need to edit any files :)
  4. please see you other post if moving the view with mouse doesn't get you the right result. You can also turn off real seat positions too...
