PounceCam

This addon attempts to reorient the camera to be behind the character after it executes a charge, fixing what seems to be a bug in the games camera follow behavior.

The bug is that Charge style spells will not trigger a camera adjustment when the game's Camera Follow Style is set to "Only horizontal when moving" or "Only when moving." The resulting mismatch between camera angle and character facing is most noticeable when a Druid uses Wild Charge in cat form, the player will usually find themselves looking at their character from the front, but can happen with any Charge type spell.

The game will only adjust the camera if your camera follow style is set to "Always Adjust". This addon works by briefly switching the camera follow style when you charge before switching the setting back to the users prefered style.

Warrior spells supported are:

  • Charge
  • Intervene
  • Safeguard
  • Heroic Leap

Druid spells supported are:

  • Wild Charge - Bear form
  • Wild Charge - Cat form
  • Wild Charge - caster, or treant, form
  • Skull Bash - Bear form
  • Skull Bash - Cat form

Warlock spells supported are:

  • Pursuit - gained by sacrificing a Felguard

    I absolutely love this. It works perfectly for me and I have 192 mods active!

    I have that option set to "Never move camera", but channeled spells (such as Penance or Drain Life) aren't effected by it at all. There's no way to achieve what I want by changing blizzard options, hence the pessimistic tone in my original comment.

    edit: Actually, nevermind. SET cameraSmoothTrackingStyle "0" in config.wtf does it.

    @vintoran: Go Well this addon tries to make the camera move when it normally wouldn't - seems like your asking for the opposite, for it not to adjust to a facing change. Have you just tried changing your camera following style in the games interface options to something other than Always adjust camera? If you don't want the camera to change on a facing change from penance then maybe a following style that only adjusts the camera when you start moving would work better for you.

    I guess it's not, but asking doesn't hurt: Is it possible to turn off the automatic camera movement while casting Penance (disc priest) in a similar way?
