View Full Version : How To Restore Front and Side Views in Virtual Cockpit & Spot
03-12-2006, 02:34 PM
I recently downloaded the Active Camera demo for the Seattle area and ever since my forward, aft and side views in Virtual Cockpit and Spot have been disabled. All number keys except 1 and 3 are functional. Cockpit view is fine, ie I can pan in all directions. I deleted the contents of the Active Camera folder hoping that would bring back the defaults...nada.
Does anyone know how to restore these functions?
Thanks for the advice.

Check your settings in Options\Controls\Assigments to make sure the affected view commands are there. Sometimes FS loses settings and you have to re-enter them. You can find the default ones listed on the kneeboard.
As for Active Camera it shouldn't disable your view settings. It may be possible that some of the Active Camera commands are the same as your view commands but those can easily be changed in the Active Camera Keys setup. Keep in mind that with Active Camera you can use the mouse to look around in the VC as well as the Spot view. The only view controls I still even have active are left and right programmed to one of my joystick buttons for a quick look and Pan reset, otherwise I use the mouse.
To completely remove/deactivate Active Camera you need to remove the ActiveCamera2004.dll file from your FS9\Modules folder. If you are removing Active Camera you also want to remove the *.acv files in your FS9 root folder.
