feature request: keep "compass heading"

by Christian Stüben » Fri Nov 08, 2013 10:19 am

Hi kolor people,
since nobody posted a solution to viewtopic.php?f=91&t=20380&p=130511#p130452 in the last day (uncommon for this forum), i want to make it a feature request:

when jumping inside a panotour from one pano to another by hotspot-buttons, please make a switch that can toggle between "jump to default view" and "jump to next pano and preserve compass heading".

When walking through a long chain of panos, i would like to be able to walk in either direction and have the corresponding "walk to next pano" presented immediately.

greetings from germany
Chris

Currently you cannot do it directly with PTP, it will be added in a 2.x version.
But you can have it with a little modification in the generated code.

In 2.0 version, open the xxx_core.xml file in the xxxdata directory.
Find the "mainloadscene" action.
In this action, you will see a call to the krpano action "loadscene".
In this call, replace the "MERGE" parameter by "KEEPVIEW".
