I have enjoyed playing TM. It and Half-Life are the only online games I play.

The only real complaint I had with v1.0 was that I could not reverse the vertical control (Y axis) on the mouse. That is fixed in the v1.5 demo. Thanks, LDA.

My question involves the camera controls. After some practice, I got used to the funky camera mode in v1.0. This allows you to look left/right/up/down using the mouse, and the turret would follow the view as fast as it could. I cannot seem to get the same behavior in the v1.5 demo. I would expect to find it under Game Options|Miscellaneous|Camera Pitch Control. The given options are None, Follow Terrain, and Follow Tank. What I'm looking for might be called Follow Mouse.

Is this camera behavior still possible? Am I missing something? (It wouldn't be the first time.) As it is now, I have to keep flipping free look on and off, but the fewer keys that need to be pressed the better.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

These settings have thoroughly changed.
There's a "freelook" option now - RMB by standard, I think...
But you'lll have to get used to constantly switching between free, turret, and front view, if you want to frag as plentiful as in 1.0
