Happened to me too at one stage. There is a reset-view button. F9 or something, that fixed it for me. I found the error was that I'd accidentally assigned conflicting commands to a single key. RoF doesn't like that very much.
Thanks for the tip/lead...
A decent manual for ROF would have helped on MANY issues, of course. In this case, I have discovered the F10
key. When in any view, hitting F10
resets that view as a default view...With TIR, that default view is the view you will see when re-centering. (Without TIR, I think the "Input...Camera:Player Cockpit" view will be set accordingly) After much trial and experimenting, I found that by selecting and adjusting your "cockpit" view just as you like(facing forward is helpful, for starters
), hitting F10 "Sets" that View forever
, until you do the F10 reset again (Even exiting the game and restarting which I did many
times, that view is Fixed until you do another F10 reset) So, after setting your desired cockpit view with the F10 key, your selected TIR re-center button will act as it should returning you to that view. Discovering how this works, while wastefully and needlessly playing around (again) with all TIR settings and ROF settings, I spent a good 7 hours or so.
Not knowing/understanding that about the F10 key, I was probably searching the sky above me in a Dogfight, reaching blindly for a friendly or enemy padlock key (F6/F7 for me, which I rarely use though) and must have accidentally hit the F10 key..locking that upward view to the sky and birds.
Okay...maybe it is/was in the manual somewhere...and I was too stupid to understand or notice it. Meanwhile, I've noticed in other threads frequent mention of using the F12 key for some similar purpose. Don't ask me
to explain that!
