Swingcam problem

Discussion in 'rFactor' started by James Capper, Feb 9, 2011.

  1. Does anybody know how to stop the swingcam in chase view moving so much...the problem I'm having is it swings too far left and right when your turning a corner, and it's annoying because your brain is telling you it's about to loose control, you then automaticly try to make adjustments then over compensate and boom bang bob's your aunty....your picking your bloodstained and broken body out of the wreckage.........lol. :confused:
     
  2. There will be something in the .cam file for that car you are using. You just need to play about with it in till you get it to do what you want. Please remember to back up your files before you change them so as if it goes all wrong you can put it back.
     
  3. Cheers Wayne.....By The way Car skiner should be Skinner......just thought I'de point that out little faux pas :redface:lol
     
  4. swingman problem solved

    Any body who likes chase view in rfactor...but without the swingy chase cam try pasting the code below into the appropriate vehicle .cam file, (making sure to back up the file in question.. just in case).

    LocalCam=SWINGMAN
    {
    Fov=(82.50000, 70.00000)
    Clear=TRUE
    Color=(164, 218, 249)
    ClipPlanes=(1.000000, 2500.000000)
    LODMultiplier=(1.005508)
    Size=(1.000000, 1.000000)
    Center=(0.500000, 0.500000)
    MipmapLODBias=(0.000000)
    Flags1=(0)
    Flags2=(0)
    RadiusLimits=(2.000000, 51.000000)
    OrientationRate=(1.50000, 5.75000, 0.000000)
    PositionOffset=(0.000000, 0.0500000, 0.05) // left - right, height, length (positive equals more to the rear)
    OrientationOffset=(-0.3000, 0.000000, -2.0000) // rake, roll, yaw
    Radius=(4.50)
    }


    Copy it all Including the brackets.
     
  5. Your most welcome mate glad to help.

    P.S thank's for the Skinner thing :)
     
  6. Fixed Swingman version 2

    This version locks the position better than the first one.:cool:


    LocalCam=SWINGMAN
    {
    Fov=(82.5000, 70.00000)
    Clear=TRUE
    Color=(164, 218, 249)
    ClipPlanes=(1.000000, 2500.000000)
    LODMultiplier=(1.005508)
    Size=(1.000000, 1.000000)
    Center=(0.500000, 0.500000)
    MipmapLODBias=(0.000000)
    Flags1=(0)
    Flags2=(0)
    RadiusLimits=(2.000000, 51.000000)
    OrientationRate=(1.50000, 5.75000, 0.000000)
    PositionOffset=(0.000000, 0.3500000, 0.40) // left - right, height, length (positive equals more to the rear)
    OrientationOffset=(-0.1000, 0.000000, -1.0000) // rake, roll, yaw
    Radius=(4.50)
    }
