Remeber that there is also an option in the ingame config menu to have the camera zoomed in or out to preference. I have mine zoomed out all the way, and to me it feels like it should go much further. For the most part, I can periodically position the camera as vertically as possible which zooms out a fair amount. Rarely, I end up using the mouse scroll to get that extra kick.
It is suppose to be possible to set up the Bluetooth, but from what I have read on forums it is complicated, touch&go, and has a possibility of permenantly f'ing the bluetooth on your computer. I never tried it - but with a little hunting on google you should be able to find out how to set it up. I personally find it hard to beleive the screwed up blutooth would be permenant, but i'm not too familiar with that technology.
I'll jump on your second paragraph first, helping the other soul :)
Yes, it works, but I recommend buying the recommended adapter (that he developed it on). It might take 4 weeks to go, but hang in there. He has links all of the product (I think on the blue tooth tab) to order it. Also, be 'sure' to follow the instructions. There is also a 'really' helpful video of someone setting it up that he links to off his site. Also, be 'sure' to follow the instructions on the tab. You 'must' install the driver for the adapter and pair it when other blue tooth devices are 'not' in the rig. I have a bluetooth adapter for a keyboard/mouse combo, and I had to hard wire a mouse to unplug that adapter and get through that portion of the setup. I could plug it back in after that. I have 'no' idea how this would work with a laptop, shutting down an internal one, but I would recommend just getting the one he recommends.
Yes, but now that I can't do the 'drop to the floor' trick with the PS3 to zoom in, I have to use O/P or 3/9. When you use that zoom, it seems to 'kill' your camera setting in preferences, because you can't hit 'End' (R3 on the controller) to reset the camera to that preference - which is another reason I always used the (until recently) built-in camera trick to zoom in.
I'm really curious at this point what it was that people were experiencing that made them produce pitch forks and torches and get that nice feature removed? Any history on that?
Thanks for the helpful replies, in all the threads :)
