    Default Free Camera - inklusive Program - including video

    Important: This isn't tested yet due to the fact, that S2 is not out yet. Also note, that we wont take over any guarantee.

    A small, but very powerful feature is the "free camera".

    Standart is a restricted camera, which dont go too high in the air. The free camera lets you go up as high you want. It gives you a huge advantage over people who dont use it.

    Most experienced player use it and you should do it too.


    There are 2 ways to get it done:

    1. the comfortable way with a little program written by <Blutzeit> His profile you can find here: https://forums.totalwar.org/vb/member.php?6468-Blutzeit

    The program just changes a little number in your "script file": It looks like this:
    default_camera_type 2; # default_battle_camera <card32>, default battle camera: 0-totalwar 1-rts 2-debug #

    The default_camera_type is standard "0"

    You can download it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ope...a.exe/download


    2. You can do manually by editing the "preferences.script.txt" file in notepad and chaging the line:
    default_camera_type 2; # default_battle_camera <card32>, default battle camera: 0-totalwar 1-rts 2-debug #


    If you dont want to use the program, its easy done manually, you can change it back anytime.

    Here's a screenshot of the app:



    Some additional notes:
    - The utility should work with all steam-based TWs (ETW/NTW/TWS2)
    - Editing preferences from within TW will overwrite camera settings.

    Hello Jevanko and welcome to the Org.

    Alas, I didn't even know such a "free camera" existed, so I can't be of help with that. Is the problem that the camera isn't "free" after installing/making the change, or is something else happening?

    The problem is that i use the program, change from normal to unrestricted in the program, but then when i go ingame, nothing changed and i can't scroll out further then I used to be able to..

    Well, its pretty good explained in the first post. I cant add much more than this. The program is easy to use and you dont need to know anything.
    Use it, activate it, done.

    If you install the game, the standard camera is restricted. In the video you can see what a restricted camera looks like and also how the "free" camera is working.
    Everyone playing with restricted camera is doomed! It is a huge advance to have free camera and all you have to chance is a number.

    The preferences.script.txt doesn't exist on my system, the downloadable programm can't find it, so it can't be customized

    is there anyone out there with the same problem?

    I WANT THAT FREE CAMERA :D


    Please help! :(
