Added Views For The Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. Additional views (defined by camera definitions in the aircraft.cfg file) for the Bombardier Dash8 Q400 by Premier Aircraft Design. A total of six cameras pointing at the aircraft and five virtual cockpit cameras. By Marc Renaud.
0 - FSX can be running while installing BUT the aircraft currently selected must NOT be the one being upgraded.
1 - Make a copy of your aircraft.cfg file.
2 - Open the aircraft.cfg file.
3 - FIRST, find the [Views] section and delete it
3 - Open the camera definitions.txt file provided by me.
4 - Select and copy all the camera definitions ( including the new [Views] section ).
5 - Paste the new camera definitions into the aircraft.cfg file. ( I suggest the bottom of the file ).
6 - Save the aircraft.cfg file.
7 - Start FSX, select the aircraft and enjoy. If FSX, is already running, simply switch to the upgraded aircraft.
A FEW TIPS
1 - I strongly recommend the use of the mouse for "swinging" around ( panning ) most cameras.
Activation : SHIFT + O ( the letter O ).
Temporary fixation of the camera on something specific : SPACE BAR.
Deactivation : CRTL + SPACE BAR : brings the camera to its original position.
NOTE : the mouse is much more sensitive than a joystick's hat switch. So move it slowly.
2 - If you don't like one of the views I added, you can simply take it out of the cycle of views by setting the parameter.
CycleHidden=NO to YES ( last line of any camera definition ===> Not true for MICROSOFT aircrafts : the line was not included but you can do it yourself and it will work ! ).
This way the definition remains in the file just in case you change your mind later.
- Please take note that I assume no responsability for any ( extremely improbable ) damages to your FSX installation or your computer. As always with donwloaded files, you use them at your own risks.
