setting driving view

Discussion in 'Richard Burns Rally' started by Arwyn Jones, Feb 9, 2013.

  1. Im sure theres a way to set the view to the bonnet view

    im currently using camhack but its a pain setting the view at the start of every stage

    anyone know how?

    thanks
     
  2. You can save a preset with CamHack. Move the camera where you want it, and press Ctrl and 1. Then next time, simply press 1 when in game, and it will load that view.
     
  3. yes but can i save that view to the original file so i do not have to use camhack?

    thanks

    I don't think so.

    Try changing the key to enable camhack to "enter", and then it will enable anytime you go into a stage, that way you only need to push the preset button. See if you can't map a button on your wheel to the preset number, then it won't be too much of a hassle at all.

    It's not as eloquent as it simply being that view everytime, but it's not too bad either, and better to have a view you like than not.
     
  5. I believe RSRBR car files are overwritten every time you start RSRBR. You probably could change the view in a file, but that file would probably get overwritten before you can even drive.
     
  6. thats a good idea to set the enable button as 'enter'
    the main reason for not wanting to use camhack is because i have a problem
    after every stage i like to look at the results menu and scroll down to see how everyone is getting on .

    now if i dont click back on the other menu 'where it says what stage, what car etc.etc
    when i go into the next stage the force feedback on my wheel moves the camera

    so im flat out in 6th gear , over a jump and on the hard landing ,,,,lots of force feedback and bang my camera turns to the left ,, now i cant see where im going ha ha then crash:)

    but if i dont look at the results everything is fine , very odd???

    How bizarre, check what button you have assigned to "look left" in your Camhack. Try assigning something else to it.

    Force feedback is sent from the PC to the wheel, so it's utterly bizarre that it should cause an issue like that. Computers are strange. :O_o:

    It is possible to set the driving-view in the ini-file of the car, yes. I prefer to do that as I have never really bothered with the camhack.

    What I essentially do is go in the Lancer Evo 65.ini and copy one of the values there (I never remember which one - make a backup before you start) and paste it in the same named-field in the ini of the car you wat to use. Test-drive, and adjust the values correspondingly to fine-tune the driving-view to how you like it.
    Then copy the ini-file to a secure place, as it seems like the RSRBR-program restore the
    default ini-file from time to time.

    It might be a bit time-consuming, but that is the way I have gone about it :)

    I do not run any team over there, I have been drafted in to PoR by the guys over at www.cmsracing.com. I think there might be room in the sister team, though, head over and check it out :)
     
  12. thanks i have tried and tried to change the view through the files but i cannot get it to where i want it,

    i want a bonnet view for the 207 s2000 and ds3 RRC

    If you have some spare time could you give it a go and then give me the numbers to save to my ini. file,
    would be much appreciated

    Had a play around and figured out what to change. Here's for the DS3:

    Code:
    [Cam_bonnet2]
    FOV=1.308997
    Near=0.037100
    Pos=0.000000 0.974777 -2.426424
    Target=0.000000 0.624589 -5.879622
    Up=0.000000 0.052750 0.998608
    
    I'll let you do the 207 though.

    So the line we want to change is the "Pos" line. Which is the camera position. Imagine you are sitting in the middle of the car, facing forwards.
    The first number after Pos is how far left or right you are sitting. A positive number, is more left.
    The second number is how far up you are sitting, with a positive number being higher.
    The third number is how far forwards you are sitting. A greater negative number is more forwards.

    You should be able to get away with just raising the default bonnet cam until the bonnet is in view. Also, you might want to offset the view if that's your preference, I personally favor a driver side bonnet view.

    No problem! Glad I could help. :thumbsup:
     
  16. Well, I still do not understand why you guys go the hard way.

    Using the pacenote plugin's ("The Beast") builtin camera editor you would not have to fiddle with those ini files and could wysiwig edit your cams positions.

    At least you could take the values from there and put them in a save place where rsrbr does not overwrite them, if appropriate.
     
  17. Its all sorted now anyway, i no longer have to use camhack
