Watch replay of a saved track from external camera


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I searched the web a lot and I can only find answers for old versions of DCS.

 

I would like to watch a track I recorded from an external camera or different POV, specifically to watch my landings.

 

But no matter what, I can't switch POV with F1...F4 and I am stuck with the exact POV I was using during the gameplay being recorded.

 

I tried to save the track then open it in the editor and enable (force) external cameras in the options, but I got the same outcome.

 

On the internet I see a lot of cool videos edited with external cameras, how do you do that?

 

I am using TacView as well, but I would like to see my track in engine.

 

Thanks

(Best practice make a copy of your trk and work on the copy )

 

Open your trk file with 7zip

Drag drop options file to notepad++

Check Settings like

  • ["spectatorExternalViews"] = true,
  • ["externalViews"] = true,

(there might be others)

Save

Retry trk in DCS

Those values were already set to true inside the options file of my track and still I cannot change view during the track replay.

Any other suggestion?

Ok now I can watch the track but my airplane crash into the sea instead of doing the same actions I did. I read it's another common issue in DCS?

I am recording and watching with the exact same settings

 

This is my replay track https://www.dropbox.com/s/2iwzz956acijvhp/F-14B%20tutorial%20Shore-based%20Landing.miz_20112020_19-30.trk?dl=0

And this is my TacView track https://www.dropbox.com/s/th9cbp4c3mepb08/Tacview-20201120-191921-DCS-F-14B%20tutorial%20Shore-based%20Landing.zip.acmi?dl=0

 

I completed 2 landings here, correctly seen in TacView, but in replay the airplane crash into the water at the beginning

Fair enough - trk files take on the current settings you have when recording so if you need to change them after the fact thats how you can do it

 

Unfortunately the reply function is a petulant child, dont expect it to do exactly what you did perfectly as you did it - always expect the unexpected on track files! :(
