I have 2 questions:

1. I need to start my tour with specified node, and with specified view.
SO far I managed to do only first part, I can start pano with custom node : .../index.html#mycustonode
But when I try to set custom view: .../index.html#mycustonode,0.0,90.0,120.0,9
pano always starts with default starting node.

I followed guides found here:
I wonder is something changed so that this tutorial is not applicable anymore or I'm doing something wrong?
Using latest pano2vr version

2. Is it possible to pass pan tilt and fow from current panorama to next one?
I'm trying to do day and night panorama taken with drone (litchi missions) from same spot, so I would like that next opened panorama starts with current pan tilt and fow of previous panorama. Is this possible? Currently when new node is opened (via thumbnail menu), it always starts from its default pan tilt and fow, so I cannot achieve smooth transition between day and night of same node position.

I have tested this and it is all working?
My test was with "index.html#Three,0.0,45.0,90.0,9"
Pan 0.0
Tilt 45.0
FoV 90.0
Projection 9 Stereographic

My test used 5 images with custom node ID's One, Two, Three, Four and Five.
Note the custom node ID is case sensitive.

To use the same pan tilt and FoV you can do one of two things.
In the target use $(cur) This uses current view which includes all three, pan tilt and FoV.
Or you can use single placeholders for each, $(ap)/$(at)/$(af).
$(ap) = Angel Pan
$(at) = Angle Tilt
$(af) = Angle FoV

The idea here is you may want one of the settings fixed.
The example is you may want to use $(ap)/$(at)/70.
So going from one pano to the other the zoom, FoV, will be reset to 70.
