    Did you update the ini file if you have not a g27 & a xbox360 controller?

    Did you press the A button to activate the drone commands?

    This looks awesome! Thank you so much!!!! I love when I'm online and just watching others live at all sorts of beautiful vantage points around the track as if I was actually at the track myself and seeing all sorts of differences of driving styles and seeing all sorts of trackside objects and beautiful vantage points that I never knew existed. And I also LOVE far-away cameras (with ability to zoom in) and this plugin is just made for that, thank you so much!!

    Question though, other than being able to use a gamepad, what sort of benefits/differences does this have compared to just using the keyboard and mouse to control everything??

    Now I'm just thinking out loud...

    Could you include some sort of position/orientation -export ? This would work pretty nicely as a CAM editor then, for finding all the best spots :)

    I don't have any information about position, angle, etc... I just send incremental infomation each frame to move the camera. So it is impossible to mark checkpoint, replay camera movement, etc...

    v1.4 Available

    - Add the possibility to show/hide a crosshair (new ini section -> DroneCamera.ToggleCrosshair)

    Example:
    Code:
    [DroneCamera.ToggleCrosshair]
    IsAxis=0
    Controller=2
    Button=1

    Great work Gerald it's a great plugin. Just wondering if it's possible to edit swingman cams in rF2, can't seem to work it out? Mainly for slowing them down

    The problem with swingman is that the camera will be shaken as soon as you go far from the car (angular effect as the camera is considered by the game as attached to the car, so it follow the car movement/shake), there is nothing to do with it unfortunatly.

    Hi Gerald, I'm trying to use this plugin with the latest build and it keeps crashing back to the launcher. If I take the files back out, all is well again? Worked fine previously, any ideas?

    not working for me either. Added my control to the ini file. The log shows it's recognized. doesn't seem to do a thing, though.
