OPTION 1 UPDATED - New menu mod V2. You can now adjust max head rotation & movement towards window to suit each truck (via menu mod) as ATS and ETS2 trucks have very different cab widths / interior camera files. viewtopic.php?p=25876#p25876

OPTION 1 UPDATED - New menu mod V3 now including slightly tweaked interior camera files for all default trucks. Added auto lean forward when looking over your shoulder when window is closed to give a better rear view. viewtopic.php?p=25876#p25876

@alonzam99 - No. I don't use betas and instead wait for the public update, so you'll have to check it out for yourself.... i guess not!

OPTION 1 is still being worked on, so for the few who have downloaded V3 (and hopefully like it) there's more to come soon, perhaps a week or so. Still at game version 1.38.

The highlights are:
Full detail interiors no matter where you are looking inside the cabin.
Fixed - Outside sound volume doesn't suddenly increase because you are looking through a closed window (SCS default bug).
Similarly, with the window 30% open, there's no increase in outside volume when looking over your shoulder (head inside cab at all times).

The beta 1.39 as shown by SCS states interior sound mixing fixes, i guess this is more to do with the engine sound disappearing when turning your head and not the outside volume fix i've stated above... time will tell.

Note: Option 7 can't be updated with these updates because it uses gcam_window_block.

TrackIR Window Block Option 1 update V3.1 and V4 in one download but both use the same required controls.sii file edits. viewtopic.php?p=25876#p25876

V3.1 - General code improvements over v3. For use with all trucks, SCS standard or mods.
V3.1 Features:
Added refueling views - Stand outside drivers door or passengers door during refueling.
Added Window "extra lean out" distance adjuster.
Use v3.1 if you always drive mod trucks or like using unrealistic cameras, devcam / cam 2 / etc.

V4 - Re-written to allow 3 modes of control - Auto "Dymanic" / Manual "Direct" / Unsupported (v3.1).
Auto "Dymanic" - This mode is for supported SCS trucks or mod trucks. You turn your head and it moves out through the open window.
Manual "Direct" - This mode is for supported SCS trucks only. Your head will only move out through an open window if you also lean sideways towards the open window at the same time as turning your head. You're in control of all head movement, keep it real.
Unsupported - This mode is for mod trucks that v4 doesn't support and will then work the same as v3.1 and its features only.
Important: Ensure you pick the correct mode in the V4 menu to suit the truck you are currently driving.
V4 Features:
High detail interiors at any angle inside the truck cab which also fixes this game bug --> outside sound volume increases when looking through the drivers closed window.
Mirrors will stay fully working while still in view.
Added refueling views - same as v3.1.
Added Manual "Direct" forward lean distance adjuster.
Added Window "extra lean out" distance adjuster - same as v3.1.

Also added as few days ago to main post, manual "basic" window operation as an alternative to the required automated window process.

What about updating it to 1.39? maybe you can do something with method 7# to get the abillity to look out without press a button like SCS method ?

@alonzam99 - I'll update to 1.39 sometime and check what if anything more can be done with option 7... but i doubt it'll get any better than it is currently.
In 1.39, if you access the option 7 menu "shift+mumlock" does your game crash to desktop? If so i'll need to fix it once i've updated to 1.39. If opt 7 crashes then opt 1 will also.

Option 1 is the future, forget scs's crap g_cam_window_block.
Option 1 now has 3 methods to control the windows, automated (that you don't like) and two manual ways (i used your window buttons for the examples).
If i didn't workout the automated (best) way first, then #1 manual would be my choice.
If you do try option 1, backup your controls.sii and call it controls-opt7.sii for safe keeping.
You need to set the menu options for v3.1 or v4 correctly for the truck you are driving, read the post.
