NOTE: mods do not disable achievements in XCOM2.

DISCLAIMER: since XCOM2 mods do not have reliable uninstall mechanism and I don't have Firaxis size QA department, I can't guarantee any of my mods are 100% bugs free, so use them at your own risk. I do play with all of them and I will release fixes or at least workarounds if bugs/problems are discovered.

For idiots like me that wonder why its not free rotating anymore CTRL-F2 toggles fixed and free rotation. Maybe I should read more carefully

@Commander, @Dragor, @doittoit2008, are there any side effects that you've noticed from the workaround? Does this change any other behavior form the LW Toolbox? I think I'll give this a go when I get home this evening, but I'd like to know what I'm getting into. :) Thanks!

A workaround for Free Camera Rotation and LW Toolbox.

Open the XComEngine.ini config file from LW Toolbox

Place a semicolon (;) just before this line
+ModClassOverrides=(BaseGameClass="XComTacticalInput", ModClass="XComTacticalInput_LW")

Thanks @Aamaxu - I'll check into the toolbox and see if there's a free camera element. Hopefully I missed something.

That's because LW Toolbox also has its own camera settings. It's either this or Toolbox, not both.

Is anyone using the LW Toolbox or LW Perks AND this mod together? For me, as soon as I installed the LW Perks and Toolbox this mod no longer works. Really sux since I've gotten so used to the Free Camera and the value it brings. But for me, LW mods take precident so I'm trying to get used to the limited "base" camera. :(
