EECMT - Ego Engine Camera Modding Tool

zissakos1zissakos1 Member Unleaded
I would like to present a generic Camera Modding Tool for (presumably) ALL Codemasters racing games using the EGO Engine.
It allows to edit any value for any camera on any car (or a selection thereof), all at once, instantly.
You can backup and restore all the camera files, and even easily package them for publishing them on the internet.

Download: https://github.com/zissakos/EECMT/releases


1. Choose location of your game.
2. Select cars and cameras you want to change
3. Enter the values you want to change. For numeric values you can even enter "+x" or "-x" to have a relative change instead of an absolute target value.
4. Hit Apply! Done!

- For each parameter, the tool shows you the values that currently exist in all camera files in a tooltip
  (so you have a starting point for modding and maybe get an idea about the range of the parameter).
- You can open a car's camera xml file quickly by right-clicking on a car
  (to find out which camera has which parameters).
The tool currently supports Dirt 1-3, Dirt Rally, Grid 2, Grid Autosport.
I am sure it supports all the other ones as well (Dirt Showdown, Grid 1, or the F1 games).
I definitely plan to make it compatible with Dirt 4.
Adding a game is as easy as editing the ini file "EECMT.ini".

Converting from/to binaryXML is handled automatically by the tool (a binaryXML Converter is included)

All changes made to the cameras can easily be exported to a folder structure ready for other users to extract into their game folders (PACKAGE button).

    I remember some modifications for cameras but it causes problems listed above

    Hmmm I don't know. Is there a thread about that somewhere where I can get more information?
    The tool changes the "cameras.xml" files. I don't know what plausibility checks the game does on them.
    All the other camera mods out there, don't they work in online events?

    The other camera mods works fine online.

    Replay camera mods can cause racenet error though.

    "The moose"

    Oh ok. Then it is a matter of excluding the replay cameras from the changes by unselecting them.

    This would be interesting, given that the chase camera in the game swings to the side way too much and effectively hides the part of the road/track that you'd normally see. Especially problematic in Greece when the trees are starting to cover the entire view.

    Would like to see a quick video tutorial on how this works. At least that would allow to not **** up something xD
