Camera issue - Tech Annihilation

Post by otyugh »

Hey,
I'm usually a player of BA, and tried this night Tech Annihilation 2.38.8 using the 100.0 engine.
Well : the default camera is obviously "free camera" which is kind of imposible to play with, and I wasn't able to switch smashing all the kind of keys to change the mode (I have a plugin to change camera mode on ctrl+middclick too which did not perform his duty).

Also even in free camera mode, every bit of wheel (up or down) make the camera to reset in a strange position, always the same, watching the bright sky. From there it's simple : I can't play :'(

I'm a linux player and had a few shortcut problems I fixed (for using groups), maybe it's something of this sort ? I had no trouble of this sort with nor Zero-k nor BA.

Try:
Press F11, disable the "camera remember" widget

Press ctrl+F2 to switch to normal overhead camera

Xfce already bind this to switch workspace.
Is there a work around this sort of thing without changing one or either default bindings?

Now I looked around and it seems already fixed.

So in techa versions following v2.38.8 it should not happen anymore..
until then (or forever) disable the "remember camera" widget
