Is there a way to see what difficulty settings were used when an NTRK was recorded on someone else's machine?

Not the obvious stuff like Cockpit ON or OFF for example, but I'm curious as to how one would determine if Overheat was ON or OFF or Blackouts or Realistic Gunnery...etc.

Are the settings available through the Console during playback or by viewing the track in Notepad or similar?

Any insight would be much appreciated.

I guess it's not possible then? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I don't think those things are embedded in the track, except for any clues you might see relating to those settings.

I've recorded tracks on "no external views" servers, but playback is dependent on my difficulty setting, i.e. I could use external views in the playback.

I've noticed other things that don't work in recorded tracks, like the "no cockpit floating pipper" that indicates the point your a/c is flying towards. That only works while you're actually flying and doesn't become part of the recording.

Like dbillo said, I don't think the difficulty settings are discernible through the ntrks. In fact, some things (like external views) are possible in the tracks that potentially weren't possible in-flight.

OK, thanks for the responses. I figured as much, but wanted to see if someone knew differently.

Yes, toggling "Manual View Control" from the main track menu allows for custom views during playback.
