Looks like we do not have a thread for custom camera settings. The vanilla setting leaves you behind with a mixed feelings, certainly not good ones. The camera in skirmish ai is an improvement. I still wasn't pleased. If you are like me then this is for you.

  • Zoomed out as far as reasonable as default camera position (no mouse wheel action needed for that)
  • Zoom in very close to the action if desired. No more hindering and beeing blocked away by crappy vanilla view angels.
  • You can hit the default key to return to default camera position, which is now setup to my custom max. zoom out with default viewangel.
  • The farther you zoom away the more the white fog or mist takes away the graphic deatails, thus a further away setting is not suggested. I already went for the maximum setting here, you can always zoom in with the mouse as usual.

Needless to say its great for taking screenshots since you can zoom in very close, now you can fully enjoy the nifty graphic some custom models have to offer, you will dig it. To be honest I can not imagine to play without those files again. Was quite some trial and error but it is now perfect I say now, only sad I didn't remember earlier to upload for you guys... sorry.


Got no screencaps for you seriously trust me on this you will like it ;)


Simply extract both files from the 7z file (attached to this post) into your mod(s) of choice "data" folder. If you use this files no worries no ugly side effects you can use them in every mod simply extract in the main mod folder where you find this files like said usualy the data folder of the mod. Grab 'em if you feel like it and try it out. Make a backup of the following files if you want to revert, which you won't :p

  1. camera_high
  2. camera_low

You might as well put it in the DXP2\Data folder but I haven't tried that since I always play with mods, your call might work or not that way. It WILL work with mods.


A word of advise some may call it cheating since with this setting you see far better and can maintain a better overview of the battle making DoW less hectic and more easy to control. Make sure you give this files to your human opponent player too since it would be unfair if only you use it and take advantage this way. Play hard but fair I suggest ;)

Sure thing my friend, enjoy :)


I might throw in the camera setting of the Inquisition trailer 1 and 2 if I find those since Claymore was kind enough to give them to me a couple of years ago. But those can not be used for play its good for replay and if one fancies to make a movie of course they have interesting view angels as well. We all know from the trailers. Where did I put them.... :lol:

We really need one final trailer. Anyone know a guy? That aside, what would be decent free software to have a stab at it?
