The Camera Hack modifies some show_me scripts and export_descr_advice.txt to add the Pause feature to them. When the user uses Show me How(a button in the Advisor part of the menu) in a battle map, it enables the Pause function. You can then press the pause key (P) anytime during a battle and it will remove the camera limits. It works for each and every kind of battle and is also simple to install. It has no known drawbacks. If the camera reverts back to normal, you can press Pause again to remove the limits.
If the Show Me How button is always greyed out, you might want to reset the advisor(in the Game Options).
To install it, first backup export_descr_advice.txt and the content of scripts/show_me, then extract the content of the ZIP file in your Data folder.

If you made a backup of export_descr_advice.txt and of the files in the show_me folder, then simply put them back in their original place.

This is quite good when I can take photos of whole cities, the down side is that the advisers automatically speak without clicking on them. A clever mod though :).

Hi, I used this mod, and I don't know how, but it makes my grafic-chip (radeon9700) working much faster. I can now play the battles in high quality, whitout any problems...thank you!
Do you know how it worked?

JUST LETTING YOU GUYS KNOW (WRITING IN CAPS LOCK CAUSE' THIS IS QUITE IMPORTANT). IN BATTLE: PRESS ESCAPE, THEN "GAME OPTIONS" THEN PRESS "CAMERA LOCK" OFF, AND THEN YOUR CAMERA PROBLEM IS FIXED. Quite silly to make a mod for this when you don't need one...

Guess you didn't got the point... this mod enables you to look at the battlefield from high above... This is not possible to choose in the regular game settings...
