really super long shot

Okay, I'm at my wit's end here. I dunno who might still even be watching for posts here, but I thought I'd give it a shot. If nothing else, maybe I can talk the hubby into going to Reddit for help or something.

Here's the thing. I just recently [finally] got the City of Heroes stuff back on my computer. Got the demorecords I have to play back with pretty much no problems...I had a few that wouldn't play, but I seem to have figured those out.

Problem: I was an idiot, and taped one of my chars from *behind*. **facepalm** I have vague memories of playing with a demorecord waaay back when, and being able to "free" the camera [you know, make it so that you can zoom around looking at other things besides your character...and could circle around your character and stuff] The thing is I don't recall for sure if it *was* a demorecord, if I did it while in-game, or what.

Everything I've come across mentioned Zloth's CoH Demo Launcher...which I don't seem to have a copy of [maybe, I still have to dig through my archive disks...it's POSSIBLE it's hidden on one] as the go-to for looking at Demos.

I guess I should ask if it's possible to do that with the demorecords at all. :P Would I need something like Zloth's launcher, or get the game to run the demorecords somehow and do it that way? Either way, I don't recall how to get the camera "free", and I can't remember where I read how to do it. :P

And if Zloth's launcher *would* do that sort of thing...does anyone have any idea where to *find* it? I've come up against the black hole of the dreaded 404 error...*sighs*. This is what I get, I suppose, for wanting to do stuff years after the game has gone away [I still miss you CoH! *hugs*]

Any help anyone can send my way would be GREATLY appreciated! ^_^
