Rebind Camera Zoom

#1 Post by brack » 21 Aug 2017 14:24

Is it possible to rebind the third person or "2" camera zoom from the mouse wheel to something else? I didn't see it listed in the key bindings page.

I like making my cruse control increase/decrease my mouse wheel so I would like to zoom my camera with a different input (perhaps + and -).

I don't test it now but ... wiki

Looking here http://modding.scssoft.com/wiki/Games/E ... amera_Data
I just want to make a game and mods better.

Thanks, but I'm not exactly sure what to do with this. I've never made a mod for ATS if that was your suggestion. Seems like overkill to simply rebind the key for zooming the camera.

Don't know if it will actually gonna work, but go to the controls.sii file inside the profiles folder "Documents\American Truck Simulator\profiles\different letters and numbers\controls.sii". Make a backup of it first.Then you can edit it with Notepad if you are on Windows or you can download Notepad++.
Go search for this lines, their numbering may vary so look carefully:

Code: Select all

 config_lines[115]: "mix camzoomin `mouse.wheel_up?0`"
 config_lines[116]: "mix camzoomout `mouse.wheel_down?0`"
You would need to replace them with this lines:

Code: Select all

config_lines[115]: "mix camzoomin `keyboard.numplus?0`"
config_lines[116]: "mix camzoomout `keyboard.numminus?0`"
Also i think it's also useful to delete the part between `` of the following lines:

Code: Select all

config_lines[91]: "mix dbgfovup `keyboard.numplus?0`"
config_lines[92]: "mix dbgfovdown `keyboard.numminus?0`"
so the lines will look like this:

Code: Select all

config_lines[91]: "mix dbgfovup ``"
 config_lines[92]: "mix dbgfovdown ``"
