S all.
Havin lots of fun with cfs2 but i'm really missing the bandit camera view and in particular the action/dogfight view found on EAW.
Is it possable for MS or one of the talented out there to add these camera views at some stage.

I dont know if its what your looking for but if you hit Ctrl and F4 that taakes you to follow view right behind your aircraft then there is another key you can push,I think its an f key that cycles between all ground objects and air craft.It only works after you push Ctrl and F4.After creating a mission sometimes i will fly the bell chopper so i can land some where then i use that view and jump around diff. aircraft to see averything in action,very fun,great for getting screenshots too.

S! Bandit~six
I do'nt know if this is what you are talking about but try this its like the jump plane view in eaw .... you need to hit the ctrl+f4 keys that puts you in the chase view then you can use the tab key to cycle through the other planes....hope this helps.I'm just a newbie at this sim ....
SB out.........

i think he means views like

View Target (straight away instead of having to cycle)
Player To Target View/ vice versa

They had did for F-15/F-18/USAF n i am sure many more sims. I find these views really add to the fun factor. Especailly for watching SAM evasion and dogfights.

They should have incorporated it for CFS2.

Right MagdenDavid.
I am getting the hang of the chase view togle however i was refering to the imeadiate view to targetplane F10 in EAW, and more importantly the REAL-TIME AUTOMATIC dogfight/action view F12 in EAW.
Given the superb planes/effects in the game it would be awsome to be able to hit that F12 type key then sit back and watch the candy,this is such a big feature in EAW.
One further, When togle throu chase view is there a way to togle only aircraft so you dont have to wade thro ground items.
Thanx .

When you hit tab (after you hit ctrl+F4) you start with the ground objects. When you hit Shift+tab (or ctrl+tab, don't know exactly) you start with the aircraft. So it's tab-> forward toggling, ctrl+tab -> backwards

TBird

P.S.:I think there are far too many undocumented keys in this sim (esp. for those who aren't familiar with FS2000). Could be useful to open a thread where everybody posts the keys he has found.

Thanx fof your tip TBIRD66,sorted.
Any Tech guys out there who can tell me if Auto Action camera views could be added?????
Having just sat back and watched 48 190's 109's P51's and P47's dogfighting around a 90+ B17 raid in real time i am getting more frustated that M$ have overlooked this feature especialy with the enhanced graphic's in CFS2.

Ooops! just fell of my soap box.
