Short description: Adjust the third person camera for infantry to your liking.
Adjust the third person camera for infantry to your liking.
Bored of the standard third person view you get for infantry by default? Would you rather have it over-the-shoulder style? Or perhaps even top-down view if you're feeling nostalgic? No problem, you can adjust the camera position to whatever you desire.
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/@your_mod_folder_nameYou can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder.
Place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You'll also need add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.
This addon allows you to modify the camera positions to your liking. In order to do so you have to edit a file called cameraPosition.hpp with a text editor (such as Notepad. This file is located in ARMA 3 dir\userconfig\dfs_3rdperson.
Further explanation is in the file itself.
Q: Game won't start - "Include file userconfig\dfs_3rdperson\cameraPostion.hpp not found." error message
A: You did not extract all files from the archive. Please follow the installation steps.
Q: Why isn't this addon signed? Will it ever be?
A: As the addon allows everyone to change their third person view camera position to wherever they want to it could be easily exploited in multiplayer. Therefore it isn't signed.
Q: I changed the values in the cameraPostion.hpp file but the view hasn't changed.
A: You must restart the game first. Sorry, sadly there is no workaround for that.
