It's F5. For more information about key settings check the 'settings' in the lower right corner of your main screen in MWO.

Btw...can anyone tell me how to post a picture here live (such as the Vulcan above) from Imgur?
get the link to the image and put the link here. in a post it should load up if not put the link inside of [ img ] [ / img] without spaces. I had to put spaces so you can actually see what I type alternatively you can also click while in the editing window the image button.

SPOOKY and SPECTACULAR COSTUME CONTEST
Posted Image

"The Burning Wolf"

Sometime during the Clan invasion, a small Clan force of Clan Wolf MechWarriors was dispatched to capture a remote volcanic world. The planet turned out to be more heavily defended than anticipated, and all of the Clan MechWarriors perished honorably in combat in the hot wastes or inside the volcanic mountains.

Legend has it, that the last of those Clan warriors, rammed an enemy Mech with his Dire Wolf, both tumbling into the lava streams of the volcano and disappearing beneath the surface.

Sometime later, looters tried to acquire savage of what was left of the battlefield. The story goes that right as they neared the lava stream the Dire Wolf disappeared in, something breached the surface. In front of them stood the mighty Dire Wolf, lava pouring from its glowing molten chassis. It proceeded to annihilate everything in sight, except for one lucky tanker. He later recalled the Mech “looking skeletal” and that he could see inside the internals and structure of the Mech. Its paintjob on the remaining armor plates was a wolf’s skeleton, and the tanker claims that blood stained the Mech. It allegedly fired all its weapons constantly as if unaffected by heat, and proceeded to pull all vehicles along with it into the molten streams. The survivor also mentioned the "constant screaming" every time the Dire Wolf fired its weapons. He described it "as if the souls of hell were trying to flee from its autocannons and lasers in screeching terror". The tanker described one detail extensively: The cockpit of the Dire Wolf was apparently burning the entire time, eternal flames spewing from the reinforced windows. Every time an enemy vehicle exploded, the flames increased in intensity, and by the end, they were described as hurting to look at.

To this day, no one that has entered the volcano since then has returned. They volcano has been glowing brighter and brighter with everyone that went missing there, though.



I hope everyone enjoyed this little story!

Thx, but it does not work (testumg ground). Which key has to be bound to f5? Resetting keys to default crashes the game.


F5 is the key! You just have to press it in the testing grounds and you can move the free camera with WASD (default keys).
If, maybe F5 doesn't work, just set another key for the option 'free camera' in the key settings (found via 'settings').

Thanks for the try, it's not working. I just get the 'You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community'.

Stealth jump jet Gauss snipers are ruining this event.
You can't shoot them unless you have long range weapons mounted on your arms.
You can't ignore them, because they are shooting at you all the time.
You can't tag or narc them, because they are too high.

At first it was 10 rocket launcher marauders who would two-shot you. Now it's this thing.
It's not fun.

Ya, 11 4hp's in one match was a little overboard

It's not my first forum. I did such things like posting pics and vids for many years successfully - but here I'm failing.
Also, before I asked here about help in this case, I searched the forum about it. It's simply frustrating, especially because so many other members can do it obviously.
Nethertheless, thank you for trying to help me Posted Image . Maybe I get an accidental realization.

And even with my 4HP I have problems to get even ONE (!) KMDD in a match. But I have fun with this event.

It's the override that makes the heat kill your engine.

I was running a mean baby with 4 snubs and srm6's 2 med pulse and it would shut down on a "no heat" match so I ran over-ride, maybe that is why I was squishy

Spook-tacular contest entry! The Dark One, AKA the Black Marauder (II) looms above it's fallen prey...
Posted Image

In the region known as Terra Therma, it is said that Mechwarriors who stray too far into the shadows of the dark mountains may never be seen again... Only the savaged, barely recognizable wrecks of their mechs remain, the cockpits naught more than a gruesome mess...

(...I know, I know, the Black Marauder is originally a MAD-3R... Let's just say that there's another...)

Well no in my case it is not the key. I changed the keys alot over the years. No idea. I tried to set the free camera to several keys but it refuses to work

Sorry to read that. Once I had a similar problem: F5 didn't work for me either, setting 'free camera' to F6 helped, strangely.
Somewhat later F5 worked again - it may happen as I had to re-install MWO after my PC got some repairs and new Windows. Maybe support can help. I would also try to reset all keybindings to default (you can set your personal keybindings later again).



I just finished the event - it was great! Chapeau to the Piranha people! Would like to have more of this!

Only strange thing that happened was a completely loss of inner structure of one leg - without any loss of armor and also without any hit taken (it was on Rubellite Oasis). But overall it was a hell-o-fun!

Events overall are cool, and free stuff is cooler.

Unlimited JJ's and unlimited ammo though, are turning out to be wrecking things. The whole thing has become about who can cram more RL's into a mech, and players are getting "rocket deleted" from matches three seconds into combat starting. So, that part is a fail, unfortunately.
