I don't think this should be that difficult, but as a newbie, this has defeated me for the past two nights.
Basically, I downloaded ROF this week and tried to play it but haven't had much luck. I use to play Red Baron 3D, but had to give it up when I lost my Windows XP machine. So I thought I'd give ROF a try.
I found the free SPAD XIII and have been trying it on Quick Mission. I was able to set the plane's controls to the Number Pad keys for flying and that seems to work okay. I can bring up the gauges, icons and the map and generally get around, no problem. So I understand (I think) about assigning keys to the various controls in the setup, but what I need are three quick views I can snap to when coming up on an enemy plane.
What I'd like to do is set three views and assign them to F1, F2 and F3 respectively.
F1: A view looking forward from the cockpit, used for general flying
F2: A view that locks on to the closest enemy plane, used to chase an opponent.
F3: A view through the gun port, used for shooting
I can't seem to get these views. At times, pressing NumPad 5 snaps to a cockpit view but then other times it does not. I find my self often looking at the INSIDE of the cockpit and then scrambling to get back to looking out the windshield.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I be looking at camera controls or pilot head controls? And which ones?
