when a race begins, and I touch a key, the screen reverses so I am looking at the scene behind the tux racer, how can I correct this from happening?

Asked by ANGandEV

After I downloaded the ETRacer, I played it several times with no problems.
Suddenly, during a race, the picture on the screen reveresed to what is behind the racer, like a look behind.
Now whenever I set up a race, it begins ok but as soon as I touch the keyboard, such as for a left or right turn, the screen reverses to the scene behind the tux racer.
How can I fix this and prevent it from happening?

Thank you for solving my problem with ETracer. After pressing the "1" key the screen's view corrected the scene to the front of the racer. Now I can prevent him from crashing his poor head multiple times and from always coming in last. This is my favorite Tux racing game and I am so glad that I can play it again while seeing where Tux is headed down through the snow and ice.

My children have hit the same bug -- the camera swings around as soon you touch the controls.
