Quick Look  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.3.5.07232010
by: Garoun [More]

Important Notes:
----------------
1) I use Smart Auto-follow for my camera settings and I have had some people say their camera got locked in a bad direction upon a zone or death. If your camera is off after you zone in, attempt to hit the key you bound to Quick Look - Reset and it will hopefully fix it.

2) Before you ask, YES there is a Blizzard default bind(Flip Camera) to "toggle" your camera to behind. This "mod" adds the ability to look behind only while the key is pressed and then return after you release the key. A function found in many FPS style games.

DESCRIPTION:
------------
Was too use to being able to look behind me quickly with one button press. The mod binds a key to Quick Look - Back under the Gar Quick Look section in the Keybindings page. Press the bound key to look behind and release to return to forward view.

INSTALLATION:
-------------
Extract the data to your "World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns" directory so that the "Gar_QuickLook" directory is a subdirectory of the "AddOns" directory.

USAGE:
------
Start WoW normally
Open the KeyBindings page from the Main Menu
Bind a key to "Quick Look - Back" under the "Quick Look by Garoun" section
Hit Okay to save the binding
Press the bound key to look behind and release it to return to forward view.

UNINSTALL:
----------
Delete the "Gar_QuickLook" directory in the "World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns" directory

PLANS:
------
For now it doesn't really need any changes because it's such a simple program, but fills such an important need for me.

Nice catch, I'll get that fix in and submit a new file for you. I never thought about doing the subtraction that way.

Let me know if there are any other problems.

Edit: Once the new file is approved it should be available to download. Thanks again for catching that, I've been beating my head against the wall over it :P.

Problem report

Hello, I just found this add-on and found I like it very much.
But there is a problem; when I press two key at once (mistakenly or not),
direction of camera is stuck at wrong direction such as left after I released all keys.

It is fixed by changes below.

Code:
<Bindings>
	<Binding name="GQUICKLOOKB"  runOnUp="true" header="GARQUICKLOOK">
		if ( keystate == "down" ) then
				GAR_LOOK_DEG = GAR_LOOK_DEG + 180;
				FlipCameraYaw(180);
		else
				FlipCameraYaw(GAR_LOOK_DEG);
				GAR_LOOK_DEG = 0;
		end
	</Binding>
	<Binding name="GQUICKLOOKR"  runOnUp="true">
		if ( keystate == "down" ) then
				GAR_LOOK_DEG = GAR_LOOK_DEG + 90;
				FlipCameraYaw(-90);
		else
				FlipCameraYaw(GAR_LOOK_DEG);
				GAR_LOOK_DEG = 0;
		end
	</Binding>
	<Binding name="GQUICKLOOKL"  runOnUp="true">
		if ( keystate == "down" ) then
				GAR_LOOK_DEG = GAR_LOOK_DEG - 90;
				FlipCameraYaw(90);
		else
				FlipCameraYaw(GAR_LOOK_DEG);
				GAR_LOOK_DEG = 0;
		end
	</Binding>
	<Binding name="GQUICKLOOKRESET"  runOnUp="false">
     	FlipCameraYaw(GAR_LOOK_DEG);
     	GAR_LOOK_DEG = 0;
	</Binding>
</Bindings>

I finally got around to updating this since I've been using it for so long and always forget to post any updates to the site :P.

The main change is the documented Look - Left, Look - Right, and Look - Reset.

Still not quite sure how to fix any stuck camera issues anyone has, but the Reset bind will attempt to fix it.

Let me know if you have any issues.

The Flip Camera requires a press to change the camera and then another press to return to forward view.

My addon just enhances that functionality to make it only require one key press and hold to quickly look behind you.

Press and hold key - looks behind you
Release key - returns to forward view
