"Spot" camera bug when loading mission

Postby jamcd787 » Thu Apr 06, 2017 10:35 pm

When there is a "Spot" camera, either FlatChase or FlatChaseLocked, the ChaseDistance is ignored upon the *first* scenario load and 24 is substituted. Loading the same scenario again works correctly. (subsequent loads of the same ok too). This also occurs when changing scenarios, ie. load scenario1, then load scenario2 and the ChaseDistance goes to 24 until scenario2 is loaded again. (24 is pretty far away for a tail view of the aircraft, I like 12 with zoom 0.3)

Doesn't matter if the camera is defined in cameras.cfg or aircraft.cfg, same behavior. Wasn't able to find a work-around.
thanks,
jim

Btw, further testing reveals that the ChaseHeading, ChaseDistance and ChaseAltitude parameters set in cameras.cfg seem not to affect the camera if it's a "Spot" Track=FlatChase
