Installation
Just download the archive, and unzip.
How to use
Start DOS 2 then start BetterCamera2.exe.

Load any level then press F10 button toggle between the 2 camera mode(better/default).

You can edit the settings.ahk to change hotkeys and parameters, just open in any editor, change then save.

When better camera mode is active :
- you can force disable automation zooming functions in conversation (in settings.ahk file)
- hold ALT and use MouseWheel for changing camera's vertical angle dinamically

Note: the second state( to default values) is reload all external resources, this mean you can change on the fly any settings, it is not necessary to restart the game.

If you set higher zoomMax value, I recommend set higher spaning speed in game and disable Dynamic Camera option in game.

If want to hide UI, press F11.

If you have advanced programming skills especially the AutoHotkey scripts, you can edit the
BetterCamera.ahk file too.

Warning!
Only work with the latest Steam DOS 2 version!

Yeah, I will frequently update to match the version, but if you got this message:
"Version mismatch, application now exit"

please will be patience until I publish the new version of program.

BTW I can recommend allways backup the working EoCApp.exe.

Thanks.

Examples:



Starting DOS 2 with Launcher
The Alt+Tab actions generate some problem for few users. I wrote a simple launcher - included in Better Camera 2 pack - to avoid this.

Just start Launcher.exe -at first run ask the proper path for DOS DE EoCApp.exe ( <DOS INSTALL PATH>Divinity Original Sin 2\DefEd\bin\EoCApp.exe).

After menu loaded press F1 button - hotkey is changeable in Launcher.ahk file - this loaded BetterCamera2.

FAQ
Q: I got "Game not found" message when BetterCamera 2 loaded!
A: Use equal UAC rights for DOS2 and BetterCamera 2. If you prefered configuration starting Steam as admin, run BetterCamera2 too.


Q: I got "Version mismatch!" message when BetterCamera 2 loaded!
A: Wait for proper release or use older EoCApp.exe (if you backuped).

Q: Hey, why didn't update the Classic version? !
A: The answer is simple: Larian recommended using the Definitive Edition.

Q: Hey, why not using AOB pattern scan or something similar? I hate versions and waiting for the new releases !
A: I starting BetterCamera 2 support the DOS2 alpha release. Since they changing many structure - different pointer addresses - and program codes. Simply AOB isn't an option - and slow when you start script first - bc is very dangerous when a bad AOB scan based script write in your game memory.

For SOME other general problem
1. Allways use same versions. If different. please wait.
2. Only work with latest Steam version. I don't have GOG version. I don't have any cracked version.
3. Some antivirus program maybe blocking BetterCamera2 and generate problem. Give access, unblock whatever...

I also have DoS installed in an odd location if that makes a difference

I tried this with both standard and administrative privileges and it doesnt seem to do anything, I tried the exe and downloaded AHK 64 bit to see if that one worked. tried pressing both f10 and f1 and removed them as hotkeys from the in-game hotkeys and still I can not zoom out or change the camera angle.
is this incompatible with some mods?

Set angle to 90 degres with using ALT + scrollwheel, and dont need Tactic Mode. ;)

Is it possible to change the camera zoom in Tactic Mode? ( After you press the O key )
It will be supervaluable for me.
