Okay, I have to be missing something but I cannot find a way to lock the camera to always looks out the front of the tank!

I am trying the latest demo, and I am using
a logitech Wingman FF to control the tank. With the Joystick controlling the tank and the R axis (I think, twisting the stick left and right) to controll the turret. And no matter what I do the camera is always looking at where the turret is aiming and it is driving me crazy!

I want the camera locked onto the front of the tank and to not follow the turret at all. While I can see the turret cam as the best for fighting, I want the tank cam for racing. I go way out of control when the camera starts to whirl around with the turret and that completly screws up the race.

There has got to be a way to do that, isn't there? I have read the in game manual to no avail and have tried all the options that I can see. What am I missing?!?!


ps: and they need some force feedback too! This game could really use it well!!

of course theres away. You can toggle the cam from either the "hud" or the "turret" my main problem is forgetting to put it on "turret" view. Since i think its more important to see where your firing at then driving straight
