Staring with Beta5, it's possible to add a lateral offset to the external view.
While on track, press Left Shift + V and then use the left and right keys to shift the camera. The up key resets to center.
Please check the docs/readme.txt file in the MX Bikes installation folder for more keyboard commands.
I hate to even say anything because I may be the only one utilizing this feature..
so first, thank you!
All I can say for the future is the more options to tweak the view the better.. kind of like the replay cam, able to set angles and distance.. but honestly, thanks again.
