    Default Open Rails View Question Please?

    Hi everybody

    Tried Open Rails a Few Weeks ago but couldn't work out how to run in full Screen on my large Monitor.

    Have now managed to work it out but cannot work out the Camera Views.

    The Up, Down, Left & Right Arrow Keys (Usually Used for this in MSTS) do exactly that, there doesn't appear to be a Zoom or Camera feature mentioned in the Installation readme, (unless I missed it) and as it appears at the moment I am starting the Activity to close to the lead Diesel.

    Any suggestions Please.

    Paul.

    Hi Gerry, Thanks for reply.

    Have everything up and running thanks.

    Mouse wheel does work but can only get 3/4 of the first Diesel on the Screen.

    Is there no better Zoom option available Please.

    In MSTS I normally run set at the First Two Diesels and maybe Four or Five Carriages.

    but that's just my preference.

    thanks again

    Paul.

    Hi Paul,
    Zoom In is <Page Up>, Zoom Out is <Page Down>.

    Also, to move from one vehicle to the next, use <Alt>+<Page up> (forwards) and <Alt>+<Page Down> (backwards).

    As Gerry has mentioned, the mouse scroll wheel also zooms in and out, but I prefer the <Page Up>/<Page Down> method as it seems to give less distortion.

    Cheers,
    Ged

    The scroll wheel chances your field of view. The page up/down physically moves the camera closer, the scroll wheel "zooms the lens".

    Thank you - I didn't know how to explain the difference

    Hi all again.

    Not quite as I would like to see it set up, but a bit of experimenting might help.

    have tried the First run of PRR under Open Rails, for a short run looks quite incredible compared to MSTS Graphics.

    However, I cannot get Around the Shadows that are following me on both sides of the Screen but guess these might be something to do with the Dynamic Shadows settings.

    Will keep trying and see how I get on.

    Regards

    Paul.
