Unless the patch updated my registry, which I doubt, this feature has been removed from the AEP patch.

Got my curiousity aroused...

I think corsair has his terms mixed up.

1) Wonder Woman view - Transparent cockpit (use Cntrl-F1)

2) Linda Blair cheat - Track IR users change a registry entry and get to look at dead 6 oclock instead of using in-game pan limits (simulating the swivel head of the little girl played by Linda Blair in the exorcist).

With 2.01 TrackIR users have found that now there pan limits are worse than the in-game limits unless they tweak the "viewlimiting" registry entry after which they get the new in-game panview limits, but not the 180 degree swivel view a la Linda Blair.

I did get the terms mixed up. I thought the Linda Blair view used to be a 360 degree view. Meaning you could pan completely around from front to front without stopping. I also saw that a "fix" has been posted in a different thread.

Sorry - my mistake - I don't have track IR and didn't realize how big a cheat that was.

There are several posts that there is an official fix identified for the problem many (not all I guess) are having with the TRACKIR interface. I think the posts say that you have to have the registry tweak "cheat" (formerly the LInda Blair cheat) done to be able to see what the new pan limits are. Apparently this might mean that the 360 degree swivel cheat is no longer available to TRACKIR users (time will tell).

Well I for one am glad they finally patched the LB away. Even if we have to tweak to get normal mouse view with TIR. Never foced LB on mine before but had to learn just to see like I'm suppossed to now! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif
