Cockpit pilot head position


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I've messed up my cockpit view point in DCS while playing with TrackIR. I've tried moving the position of the pilot's head view point, but it's still weird. Can anyone help me with the original file that sets the default cockpit pilot head view position?

I have these settings for my F-16, on the /saved games/config/view/server.lua file:

 

ViewSettings["F-16C_50"] = {
    Cockpit = {
    [1] = {-- player slot 1
        CameraViewAngleLimits  = {20.000000,140.000000},
        CockpitLocalPoint      = {3.259,0.796,0.0},
        CameraAngleRestriction = {false,90.000000,0.500000},
        CameraAngleLimits      = {200,-90.000000,90.000000},
        EyePoint               = {0.05000,0.100000,0.000000},
        ShoulderSize           = 0.25,
        Allow360rotation       = false,
        -- limits_6DOF            = {x = {-0.13,0.30},y ={-0.06,0.16},z = {-0.18,0.18},roll = 90.000000},
        limits_6DOF            = {x = {-0.17,0.45},y ={-0.30,0.10},z = {-0.22,0.22},roll = 90.000000},
    },
    }, -- Cockpit 
    Chase = {
        LocalPoint      = {-5.0,1.0,3.0},
        AnglesDefault   = {0.000000,0.000000},
    }, -- Chase 
    Arcade = {
        LocalPoint      = {-21.500000,5.618000,0.000000},
        AnglesDefault   = {0.000000,-8.000000},
    }, -- Arcade 
}

You could just delete (or better rename to maybe "snapviews.lua.bak", this file saves view angles for ALL modules you got) the snapviews.lua file found in C:\Users\YourUsername\Saved Games\DCS(.openbeta)\Config\view.

On next startup, DCS should generate a new one with default settings. Poke me if im wrong, didn't work with the snapview file for quite a while.

Thank you all for your replies. I deleted the files as Desert Fox suggested (it was the easiest to do) then I selected 'repair DCS' and I launched the sim. Now it works ok.
