Singleplayer: 3rd Person Tank View (halp!)
« on: 03-04-2021, 18:04:12 »
Howdy ya'll!

I found out about the game via a friend (I love it! I play with 120 bots on small maps, very chaotic).

But something is really nagging me to no end, there is no 3rd person tank view?
I've looked around on the net and messed around with the game files, to no avail.

I can see why no 3rd person would be working for multiplayer, but I solely play singleplayer.

What do I need to do to get it working? Is it a parameter or something of the sort?

Don't know, but you can free look with mouse holding ctrl button. So you can quicly look around without moving the turret.

Play using seperate server (connect to server don't start from inside the game). You might have to set some setting server side.

to get 3rd Person Tank View in SP, you should take a look at those threads:

1. http://fhpubforum.warumdarum.de/index.php?topic=19777
2. http://fhpubforum.warumdarum.de/index.php?topic=9449
3. http://fhpubforum.warumdarum.de/index.php?topic=21061
4.  http://fhpubforum.warumdarum.de/index.php?topic=19295

But unfortunately all py plugins are compiled.. so you cannot change the python plugins with notepad or something else anymore.  but the first and third thread above might be a solution for you.

There's a much easier way to add the testing plugin now. You can revert back to using the compiled gameplayplugin by deleting the uncompiled .py file.
Then do the following to enable the testing plugin:

In your fh2 folder open fh2.cfg
If it's not there already, copy fh2.cfg_template and rename it to fh2.cfg
then replace this line:
Code: [Select]
#append_plugins = []
with:
Code: [Select]
append_plugins = ['testing']
save and start fh2

That fix from 3. works great, thanks a lot!
I actually didn't expect a reply (so soon)
