Free Camera Rotation

Confirmed to work with WotC, for more info see below...

1. Sets default rotation angle to 45 degrees.
2. Enables free camera rotation while holding down Q and E keys (in analog mode, see hotkeys).
3. Enables free camera zoom while holding down T and G keys (in analog mode, see hotkeys).
4. Enables free camera mode controlled by mouse movement (Alt + mouse).
5. Allows to pitch camera with [ and ] keys.
6. Fully ini configurable.

1. Alt + mouse - free camera mode.
2. Ctrl + F1 - reset camera to default view.
3. Ctrl + F2 - switch between free and fixed rotation/zoom.
4. Ctrl + F3 - toggle free camera.
5. [ and ] - pitch camera.

1. ini files are located under your [Path To Steam Library]\XCOM 2\XComGame\Mods\FreeCameraRotation\Config or [Path To Steam Library]\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\616359783\Config.
2. Key bindings: XComInput.ini.
3. Camera settings: XComTacticalInput_FreeCameraRotation.ini and XComCamera.ini.
4. Instructions and examples on key bindings: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/616359783/392183857632885222/
5. Instructions and examples on zoom settings: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/616359783/392183857632918975/

I don't own the DLC myself, but here is some useful info from other players:
Can also confirm this works fine with WotC. The only minor "incompatibility" is that the mod is flagged with a warning in the mod launcher.
Try a fresh install (unsubscribe to the mod first) and open up mygames/xcom2 (and the WoTC folder too) find engine.ini and delete all instances of "modclassoverrides", locate the workshop folder in your steam installation, "\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\616359783" delete the folder (the one ending in 783) then resubscribe to this mod. It worked for me

NOTE: mods do not disable achievements in XCOM2.

DISCLAIMER: 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.

Mod works once I delete everything in the Ini folder but has a random chance to stop working on a crash or restart of the game, after which the Ini folder has to be cleaned up again. Pretty annoying.

Thats what I had to do to get any keybinds working and not reset with every game start. This is an issue with the base game!

figured it out. turns out this fixes issues with every mod not working correctly. you gotta find your config folder in my games>xcom2 war of the chosen> XComGame>Config and just delete everything in it. Nuke the whole damn thing. load the game via the AML and make sure every mod you want is listed, but dont open or start any saves. shutdown the game. load it again and fix your settings to the way it was before you snapped all the files away. start your game. presto. Im not gonna pretend I understand how or why it works, I dont know computers THAT well, but I had a friend say the same happened to them and thats what they did to fix it and presto: yeah the mod and other mods that broke just are now suddenly working again.

No. It either works or not. Try installing the mod alone and use suggestions from the posts below (alternative launcher, RequiresXPACK=true).

update: it's half working. it doesnt even matter if the other mod i mentioned is installed or not. i dont get the 45 degree rotations, nor the free cam. BUT I know 100% the mod is installed and somewhat working because the zoom changes are working. this is really weird, ever seen anything like this happen with your mod?

Might be a conflict indeed.
The Wasteman May 11 @ 9:56pm 
update: now its not working no matter what I do. I've done everything from adding the line to the text file mentioned below to flat out reinstalling the game and reinstalling every single mod I ever installed one by one. Nothing. Something's up, and I really don't know what to do to get this mod working again. I really hate the default camera angles in this game now that I've gotten the smallest taste of good camera angles from this mod so, it REALLY sucks seeing it suddenly not work anymore at all for no reason.

suddenly broke and stopped setting camera rotation to 45 degrees and the free camera mode with Alt when i installed the "Remove Dark Event (Grim Horizon Lite) mod, no idea why it would but that's the ONLY conflict its having.
