i was woundering: in the 'game.cfg' file, where we can change the camera pitch for the game..
ie.
...
//Buh bye techtree.txt
XMLTechTree

//Bold new pathing vision
pathingironhull

limitPitch=45
maxZoom=150
minZoom=50


//minimapIgnoreLight
//minimapIgnoreFog

//-- Particle System
maxParticles=-1
...

would it be possible to change this to a range or a 'max and min' verible, which might make it possible to change the pitch in game, useing the 'control+num8' and 'control+num2' or watever

do u think this is possible?

It's possible. Just make sure you make a back-up of the original file. The first time i changed it something went wrong too. Try to edit the file with notepad. That should do the trick. But let my add that ES implemented a check when you want to play a multiplayer game with a changed gamesettings.bar file. They consider it as cheating if you can see more of the map than your opponent can. So you can only try it in singleplayer.

Just make a back-up in case something goes wrong ;-)

I open it in notepad, but when I change the pitch value, or zoom value it fails to initialize (something like that) when it loads up the menu. Then exits out...

Use the .bar extractor available... Not sure, I'll get back to you on the link.

If you have downloaded the latest patch, then editting that might not work, coz people used zooming out as unfair advantage in games.

EO (lamir) made a zoom editor. You can change the pitch as well - but it stays constant and you cannot change the pitch again untill you exit and modify the user.con file.

To get pitch/zoom editing to work make a user.con file and put in the lines:
limitPitch=##
maxZoom=###
minZoom=##

I don't think it'll work anymore though because of the recent patch.

Now heres my theory.
Look in the game.con file

"// Toggle camera limiting
map("control-alt-c", "developer", "cameraLimit")

// Get to a camera limit valid viewing angle but with camera limit off.
map("alt-shift-c", "developer", "cameraLimit(1) cameraLimit(0)")

// Toggle camera rotation
map("alt-c", "world", "cameraRotate")

Theres a hotkey that you press that changes the pitch by 1 i think. As you see it's labeled under "developer mode" I've tryed changing it to "editor" to get the hotkey to work in the editor but i guess developer mode was disabled entirely.
