Default This really sucks...........

So i decided to up the resolution on EF2 from my usual 640 x 480 since I have a video card that can handle well over that. When I changed to 1280 x 1024 everything looked super crisp....couldn't ask for a better picture. Unfortunatly I need to run servers by myself alot of times to test my skins........So I make great use of the "cg_3rd_person 1" console command, which lets me see my skin from a third person perspective.....now what bothers me is, before I changed the resolution, my character used to be centered in the screen when I used third person, now he is set off to the lower right. I have restored all the settings back to normal, but he says this way? Any ideas?

These are the cvars that control the camera, enter them in and see what the default value is in the console:

cg_cameraheight
cg_camerahorizontaloffset
cg_cameradist

There are more camera controls which you can find out by typing
cg_camera
and then press TAB, NOT Enter.. pressing TAB will show you all the cvars/cmds that start with cg_camera

So check all of those are in their default values [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Ok heres a stupid Question....can I alter the camera angle to give me a view looking at the front of the body? I tried adjusting the horizontal and even the distance by a negative number.......Unfortunatly the camera moves to those points but still pivots around the character so I cannot see his face....I have been using this method (ok don't laugh) where I spin him one direction then jerk it back the other direction...that way I get a quick glimpse of his face......I know...I am a dork.....

hehe.. unfortunately no.. there doesn't seem to be a thirdpersonangle command like in EF1.
MB52 came up with a sort of solution by doing this:
Open the console and put "+cameralook"
Now you can move the camera around with the mouse... but your character gets limited movement because the mouse is no longer controlling it.
Type -cameralook to get back to normal control..

While in +cameralook you can use the cg_camera commands to move in closer
