    Free camera mod by tanx

    Post by panzerfront on Thu Nov 06, 2014 3:34 pm

    I'm trying the free camera mod by tanx.   It has been enabled in mod enabler and I changed the SF42 key combination to something that will activate it.   In game I go to F9 external view and then activate the free camera.  It works and I can move the view around the battlefield and zoom in and out, but only from a top down (birds eye) perspective. The effect of the key commands on the number pad for the free camera seem to correspond to those for the map view rather than external camera.  Cannot get camera to shift to the horizontal to actually look at terrain and objects from the side.   Is this how it works?   Or am I missing something?

    Is this mod supposed to allow you to zoom around the battlefield after the battle is finished?

    LSM, you are the man. Ctrl+5 brings the camera to the ground and horizontal. Now I can use the number pad keys to tour the battlefield. Tanker, you can zoom around during a battle if your want.

    Thanks panzerfront.  How do you activate the free camera once you go to external view (F9)?

    I can't seem to make this mod work. In external view (F9) I press shift F11 to activate the debug camera or I press control-5 and nothing happens. I'm still tethered to the user's tank.

    I'm sure it's impossible to use mouse to navigate camera.

    Hi guys!

    I'm getting no luck at all with getting the Free Camera into "horizontal mode" with Ctrl-Numpad 5, Ctrl-5 or any other key i can find?  The mod works fine in normal mode and all the NP keys do what they're supposed to but i can not get it into horizontal mode which is really what i need for making videos as i don't just want footage of one side?  I need to be able to move to the enemy lines and capture what they are doing too?

    Ctrl-5 or Ctrl-NP5 just wont work for me!  Any suggestions?  I've tried on S STA 3.1.

    Thanks.

    Where did you know about "horizontal mode"?

    Doesn't work for me though so must be something to do with all 3 of my installs?

    But what i will say is from checking out a LOT of Steel Fury vids on You Tube i can see absolutely NO evidence that it does exist or has been used in making YT videos. Which is the only reason i am interested in it. As it stand you can only record the action by your own side, not what the enemy is doing or record ambient events and remote views etc.

    Real pity, but maybe someone will come forward with how to fix this or a way to implement it in the future possibly?

    You should enable free camera. Press combination of the keys and 4,6 to rotate, 7,9 up/down.

    Er? I already enabled Free Camera! A long time ago?

    Its mapped to Shift-F9 in my Controls set up.

    The point i've been trying to make is that you or i it seems can only get a vertical, top down, overhead view using the Free Camera.

    What i'm looking for and according to other posts on this forum is possible, is the ability to get a horizontal, oblique, RTS-style view the same as you get when you press F9 from your own vehicle?

    NOT a view that is like looking at the Map etc?

    What i'm looking for is this:



    Not this:



    Basically i want to know if you can get an F9 External View Camera using the Free Camera Mod.

    Like an F9 View that can go anywhere on the map/battlefield?

    Its so i can get close up footage of enemy vehicles when making You Tube videos?

    Thanks.

    If you can move camera left, right, up, down it works. Angled camera is available Ctr+8 or 2.
    That's something strange with horizont mode.

    Mate i want to thank you for that last reply!!

    You know what i never thought to try the Right Ctrl key and the NUMPAD buttons!!!!!

    Was just banging away on the left one and getting more and more frustrated?  Couldn't see the wood for the trees i guess?

    Thanks very much, works like a dream!!

    I feel a Cross of Iron movie moment coming on?
