So the new patch removed the camera (button 2) which allowed you to follow your shells to help guide shots, aenhance immersion or when your dead simply watch other players’ shots so you troll them with Why You Firing HE? Learn to lead etc....

 

Instead they’ve removed the key binding and replaced them with sub controls.

 

Cant find an option to remind and the functionality seems to have vanished?

I was using 'z' earlier to see where some torps were going.   It's still working after the patch.  If 'z' doesn't work you may have assigned some other key.

I'm disturbed by this too. It used to be 1-2 for shells (toggle) and 3 for torps (iirc). Now it is just Z for anything (that used to be previously alongside the 1-2-3's.). Is there any way to get the 1-2-3's to work like it used to be? Bec there is only one alternative key to be binded with Z.

123 has always been for ammo selection

Z has always been default for me and 1-2 ammo select. Been to lazy to rebind my keys since Beta.

 

Alternatively I have the option by default to fire with the mouse wheel. This both fire the guns and goes into the shell following camera.

I think those are saved in these files: preferences or preferences.xml.bak

 

Delete them.

Yes Z has been default but it also did change the camera with 1,2 and 3 (iirc). At least with 1-2. You could toggle between different shells with those (and with 3 between different torps). Now I can't. It is no biggie to learn to press Z but till today I was used for 1-2-3 / the toggle mode.

We are talking about free camera after you die. There was an option to click [2] to follow salvo of main battery and [3] to follow torps and [shift?] to enter free camera mode.
