Alt and/or shift also change how you move too, though I forget what exactly they adjust. Another cool feature is to activate the slow keyboard key (by default in 2.0.x it is 'a'), which makes your roaming movement more smooth.

Works for me. Try again. Make sure you're in roaming or tracking mode (toggle with F8).

Which part, the 'a' for momentum observer? You may have changed the key mapping to something else, or disabled it entirely.

Not mentioned on the wiki page is the 'trackShots' feature. Try
typing /localset trackShots 1 and using the "Following" or the
"Driving with" observer modes. It's a silly feature that'll probably
be removed at some point :)
