  1. Hi all,

    I'm working on a mod containing new viewing angles.It will take me several days to work on this mod. Download link will be available next week.

    Here are some pictures to wait .....

  2. Those look really cool. But i tried and tried to get a bunch of set to work and i simply couldn't get it to work. After spending over an hour trying to figure it out i gave up.

  5. Sebastien do you know how to change the "look left/right" cameras in cockpit view?
    Nice work on the cams btw ;)
     
  6. Hi maxel,
    Unfortunately,I don't know how to change this view.I tried to rotate the viewing angle from left to right without success.

  11. I've solution for ya! ;-)

    These are some screenshots of my Zakspeed Cockpit View
    1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg
    And here's a video of another angled cameracar on the Camaro GT3 (a bit tricky this one as I had to fiddle around with the X Axis rotation as well).


    If you want to rotate the camera you need to do a couple of calculations.
    1- Place your camera where you want (as you're doing it now)
    2- Select how much you want to rotate the camera (in degrees) and then transform that value in Radians (use google for this. Like "15 degrees to rads": google will return the value.
    Remember that if you want to rotate camera left you have to calculate the degrees by subtracting your rotation degrees from 360. In this case 360-15=345.
    3- Copy the Rads value and always in google calculate the Sin and Cos of that number (possibly open two windows for this): google will give you another value that might be either positive or negative.
    4- Go here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb206269(v=vs.85).aspx
    and scroll down to the point you see the paragraph that talks about ROTATION
    5- The formula on the Y-Axis rotation is what we'll need.
    6- Open your xml file. Time for copy-paste!
    7- You've to correct (basically to substitute) your current matrix values with the new ones you've calculated (Sin and Cos of the selected angle) following the "formula template" from the webpage (step 4). Remember to correct the "sign" of sin and cos values: - x + = - , - x - = + ;)
    8- Save and test what you've done!

    Good luck!

  12. Thx Emilio:)

    First test with an angle of 20 degree to the right.

    As against to the left side,I didn't really understand.

  13. Nice one!! To have a rotation of let's say 20 degrees to the left you have to do: 360-20= 340. Now you do 340 degrees in rads and you take it from there ;-)
