This patch is my attempt at making a car and track camera controller that can be used on the fly to control the Player F10 and all car's Replay Pit Cam and Chase views.  It is intended for those who want to make movies or special still screenshots of GPL.

The original CCM program was written by Peter van der Burg and is a very cool program, but it does not work with more than seven GPL cars or with newer operating systems such as Windows 7 and later.  CCM2 does essentially the same as the original although it lacks some of its features.  The good news is that CCM2 works with all operating systems, all mods, and with any number of cars.

There are two operating modes.  In the Player F10 and Replay Chase views, the camera viewpoint is based on the selected car's position so it will always follow that car around the track.  As with any replay, you can use the mouse or normal keyboard commands to control the replay.  In the Fly (Replay Pit Cam) view, the camera is not based on any car and is free to move anywhere on the track so you will have to "fly" it yourself with the keyboard.

CCM2 is a patch rather than a standalone, external program and you can place its .xml file into one of the following three directories.  Then start GEM+ and let it rebuild the mod .exe.

1.  GPL Installation/Mods/GEM+/Mod Physics directory.  The patch will always be used by this mod only.
2.  GPL Installation/Mods/GEM+/Mod Physics/Options directory.  The patch will be used by this mod only and can be turned on and off with its GEM+'s checkbox.
3.  GPL Secrets/GEM+/Options directory.  The patch will be used by all installations and mods and can be turned on and off with its GEM+ checkbox.
Thanks to the '55 Mod Team for their test support.

As always, please read the Read Me.

Enjoy  :wave:

tried it, and that's quite easy to play with.  


  When reviewing tracks bugs before release, will be useful to check in what direction tracks objects vanishes, or are clipping

Wonderful tool, thank you so much, it's beautiful to drive using different points of view. if it's allowed a wish, i'd like to save camera position in F10 view inside executable, to dont redo all settings each time.
