    Question How do I reset all camera settings?

    Been playing for a while in VR, but when I launched the game today all my cameras in 2d are screwed, well, mainly the cockpit and helmet cam. I've been trying to reposition them with the keyboard shortcuts, but they don't look quite right. Is there a way to completely reset to default settings (without deleting my career profile)? What file do I need to delete?

    What do you mean exactly- youre camera views are screwed? The 2d views are different from vr views completely. Especially the helmet and cockpit.

    Exactly, the 2d views. The are just the wrong angle, fov, they are basically looking at the ceiling of the car. Don't know why this happened, I certainly didn't manually set them so bad. I just want to reset them to default.

    All my cockpit cameras are too close, so i barely see wheel, i set fov to 58% but it should not be that bad, can't see revs and such, and it's painful to move driver backwards and down on every car i try to race when start lights go off
    Also it would be nice if i could just press and hold buttons to move camera, and don't click em like crazy..

    you seat position will save for every car as long as you arent using ctrl + k to move it.

    So they can't globally be reset? No one knows which config files controls these?

    Something tells me it's not a good answer
    Especially as you can open any xml file and see what's in there.

    Documents/Project Cars 2/savegame/blahblah/project cars 2/default.sav
    This one can be it, try to copy it somewhere else, like into new folder and see what happens.

    Yeah the graphics files don't do it. The save includes the career too?
