There are alot of different Custom Camera veiws. What they do is center the camera behind the user at the coordinates selected by the input, its locked in positon so wont move like smart cam. You can make their own or use other players veiws. In order to set these, you have to have a "Con button". Set this in global keyboard settings. Once you have that, press your Con button. The commands are CAMERA_CUSTOM_BACK distanceGoesHere, CAMERA_CUSTOM_RISE distanceGoesHere, and CAMERA_CUSTOM_PITCH distanceGoesHere. Once you've got a suitable camera setting for your playing abilitys and prefrences you exit the game and open the armagetronad file. Go into the settings file, and alter the relative settings somewhere down the list to equal the settings you made in game. You can use decimals in these settings. NOTE: If you enter the settings in game they dont save, you have to edit the config file. You can use C (default) to switch through camera veiws, or go into player settings and camera setup, and switch the camera veiw to "Custom".
