    PC Cars 2 Camera default position.

    Hello,

    I`m new here. I love the PC 2 game. I`m using a Samsung C49 ultrawide screen / Sim Lab Rig / Fanatac DD1 and Club Sport V3 pedals. Recommended Cockpit FOV 74

    Actually I`m happy with my setup, but the camera position really annoys me.

    In career mode (Formula Renault 3,5) cockpit (helmet) view I adjusted the seat (forward/backward up and down and I completely f***ed up my view. The Driver suit appears in the Picture... and something like that

    I know Numpad 5 will set the view to Default Position - That`s fine

    But every time when I start my game (Career) again… I`m in this f***ed view again Why is not possible to save the view once it`s comfortable…??

    I`m really struggling with the seat Position in this game.

    Please HELP ME!

    No one could help? Now also the helmet is gone?

    FOV 80 and helmet on. Is this a bug?

    I don`t want to uninstall the game. Then all the Career Progress is gone

    This has been requested (reset seat option), but not implemented as far as I know. I've never fiddled with those settings, but here is some info from forum user poumpoum that may be of help:

    - Use the shortcut ctrl+k to enter in a special mode : you can move up/down/forward/backward (Q,S,D,E for azerty keyboard), it is faster than step by step
    - Use the shortcut ctrl+k again to enter in a second special mode : same keys but you can move left and right
    - Use the shortcut ctrl+k again to exit this special mode

    When you exit a session and start a new one the seat position is reset to the initial position (nothing is save).
    When you're in special mode you can use numpad #5 to reset to the inital seat position.

    I don't get why all this isn't expain in the control menu... (never played PC1, launch PC2 for the first time yesterday)
    But having an option to reset the seat position would be so much better !
    Keep in mind there are two different cameras for cockpit use: Cockpit and Helmet. And in Helmet mode, you can choose to show the actual helmet or not.

    I don't know if it's mentioned in Yorkie065's excellent series but they are well worth a look anyway:
    Thrustmaster TX, Italia 458 wheel, T3PA-Pro, Firmware 54, Xbox One X, public OS, 28" 4K monitor

    I wonder if renaming the "default.localsettings.v1.03.sav" file (and/or "default.controllersettings.v1.03.sav") in C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Project CARS 2\savegame\[steamid]\project cars 2\profiles to something else would reset that setting without losing your progress? You can also make a copy of all the .sav files in that directory before attempting this, so that you can always copy them back.
