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

Video:



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!

Tips:
- 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).

Enjoy!
