I'm looking into creating a few more scenarios, and would like to spruce them up by having a good intro. I know the .msc file contains the scenario intro information and allows for setting the camera, flying the camera, and placing arrows. Is there any setting I can use to show me where the camera is in game so I can come up with good camera positions for my scenarios?

This would be nice too, for the fact that this file allows you to set the default camera angle that makes the most sense for that scenario.

Unfortunately the current version does not include that "camera position capture" hotkey. This feature will be included in the next update - we've just put it to the to-do list.

Excellent. Will it be a toggle thing where you can constantly see the camera position, or just a capture button to get what it is at the current location? Either one would be very useful.

Maelstrom,

now I gonna disclose you the biggest secret of MA :D - one of its undocumented possibilities.

If you've installed the patch - press CTRL + C and find the file camera.tmp in the same folder as ma.exe

That's it.

P.S. I don't remember if this feature implemented in the original version as well.

Waiting for f***ing cool scenarios from you :wink:

I've just added the possibility to get a camera position from clipboard, just press CTRL+C for copying the position and CTRL+V for putting it in your text.

But this will be available in the nearest patch...
