V0.2.5 15-Sep-2013
-Made the keys configurable using the same config syntax as the game itself. The included config file is the one I made for dvorak, while the default without any config replicates the original behavior. The config can be dropped anywhere in GameData.
- Added a check that the current camera is flight, using a CameraManager object referenced in e.g. SteamGauges code. This lets it interact nicely with stuff like IVA views.
- Fixed unreliable action of next/prev keys. The problem was using "-=" instead of "&= ~" to remove a bit.
- Try to replace the map view hack with manually saving and restoring a couple more properties. It seems to work, although I can only guess at the full purpose of the map view hack.
- Glitchy switching between multiple cameras with next/prev keys because they all tried to handle the key.
- Crash if exiting to space center while a camera is active.
- Changed "next camera" and "previous camera" keys to - and = (Minus and Equals)
- Changed "exit hullcam view" key to Backspace.
- Added areocam180 part, which has a 180 rotated camera view.
- Tweak the areaocam and areocam180 field of view.
