Question

Hi, I just wanted to ask a few things:

  1. Is there a 'free camera' mode, and if so how do you access it as well as use it EDIT: what controls are there for manipulating the view that you see, if so what are they?
  2. How can you 'save' a replay file so that you can watch it at any time, regardless of the update? (includes via screen recorders/external software, any recommendations will be useful).
  3. How can you hide the overlay (for information) so that you are only left with the base image (hide controls etc)?

I have already watched replays back, but only from this version (0.9.5/6 (not sure, version as of 25/06/2020)

I have also already looked at forum posts (maybe from different server group), and YT vids, but they are all to the version(s) where you had to edit files manually.

Thanks in advance.

Left Ctrl + Left Shift + Backspace enables free camera.

Watching older replays is troublesome, if youre happy to just have the videos then you can record them with something like nvidia shadowplay, thats what I use so not really sure of many current alternatives but its useless to you if you're not using an nvidia graphics card.

Left Ctrl + J

Hello,

 

there are two free camera options:

  • After your ship sinks, you can just press "Shift" and you switch to free cam that allows youto zoom through the battlefield.
  • There is one more way, but warning, do not use this while in battle - it is good for training rooms or again, when you are sunk, because the controls atake some time to get used to and while it is a great thing for beauty shots, it is not a great thing for actual gameplay ;) Press "Ctrl+Shift+Backspace".

The only way to do this reliably is to store old clients, sadly.

I was talking about a free camera in the replay, but thanks.

How do you store old clients?

Thanks.

Thanks, I've found the recording to be good.
