Disabling view change

Post by c1212354 » 17 Mar 2013, 01:46

Loving trackmania, but one thing is driving me insane - when maps change your view. Mostly its where the view is changed to 1st person for a loop etc you, then changed back to third person automatically. The problem is that I use first person normally, so all this does is change my view shortly after these points and fuck up my laps.

Is there a way to disable/stop tracks from automatically changing the view for you?

Or use the alternative method to chose the camera, use the numbers on the regular keyboard part and not of the numpad (since I assume your camera is also reset on map change).

In fact, the camera view is usually changed e.g. to the camera 3 by use of MediaTracker events on the replay, to ease driving through loopings. This camera change is a trigger which has a start and an end, so it would restore your original camera setting after the end.

Indeed some maps might use different camera settings, but it is mappers freedom who want you to see the map like they want it you to see ;)
