Looking for Some ScreenView Help

Last night I managed to get my 5 man team logged in for the first time. Things went well and IS boxer is a whole lot easier than the hack I was using when I was dual boxing!

The only real problem I had was with view changing. It made it difficult to do quest turn-ins, loot and in some cases meant my healer with the cockeyed view would get left behind.

Is there an easy, or at least straight forward was to configure/and or reset camera/screen view using IS Boxer? I tried playing the setscreenView command but w/o much luck.

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Looking for Some ScreenView Help

You can create a macro and bind it to some key that you won't normally and broadcast it to whichever windows you'd like.
Code:
/script SetView(4);SetView(4)

By putting the SetView command in there twice it will change the camera instantly. I even have something similar on my window swap key so that when I swap to another window all my slave windows have identical camera angles. I believe the built in SetView uses values 1 through 5. You can also create your own camera angle and save it to one of those values. I have no toyed around with that because Setview(4) does what I need it to do.

Thank you MiRai. I feel like a moron. I think part of the trouble I was having last night was that the macro guide I was using didn't include the brackets, so it would have read '/script SetView 4' as the syntax.

Thank you!

If your screen is drifting off then your Camera Following Style is probably set to never adjust.

You can adjust that with the console variable cameraSmoothStyle.
