confirmed still happens in Version: 0.77.109501

i use:

onEachFrame {
if((cameraView == "EXTERNAL" || cameraView == "GROUP") and (vehicle player == player)) then {

		vehicle player switchCamera "INTERNAL";


happens when unarmed as well.

The command also doesn't work when you're inside a vehicle.

+1 BIS you broke it!

This command is also broken with respect to switching camera to a unit in a vehicle.

(gunner veh1) switchCamera 'GUNNER';

Strangely if you just pass the veh to the command it will work correctly for the driver:

veh1 switchCamera 'GUNNER';

But there is no way to switch Camera to the gunner or commander.

Both the development and stable builds exhibit this issue.

I found this out with my sound mod too

This is still an issue.

Looks like this has been fixed in todays dev, thanks!
