Setting for mantle tilt view amount

Daft Mugi

Recommended Posts

One thing that was uncomfortable for me when I started playing The Dark Mod was how much the view tilted during a mantle. This is similar to the amount of head bob.

For those who are sensitive to motions like that as well, I've attached a patch.

I hope it or a variation of it will be accepted into the main The Dark Mod codebase, since it'll help those players.

The new cvar "pm_mantle_tilt_mod" is a value between 0.0 and 1.0. The default is 1.0, which means no change from the traditional tilt view angle. A value of 0.0 is no tilt. I personally prefer 0.1, which tilts the view only 10% of the traditional amount.

idCVar cv_pm_mantle_tilt_mod(
  "The multiplier applied to the tilt view angle during a mantle",
  0.0f, 1.0f

(Patch based on r10036.)

I have to admit. I had the same thought after I added yet another cvar. :)

I'd keep the cvars, so there's always that fine grained option.

But, yeah, having something really simple in the menu would likely be welcomed.

Maybe something like: [no motion] [slight motion] [normal]
Or: [reduced motion] [normal]

Shortly after I started playing The Dark Mod, I reduced the head bob and tilt view angle. Otherwise, it's been pretty great!

      Boris Johnson's resignation does not change the fact that Australia is home to 29 million kangaroos and Wales has a population of just over three million.

      If the Australian kangaroos were to invade Wales, one resident would have to fight almost ten kangaroos at a time.

      Deathloop – what a mess of a game. I'd love to see a post-mortem on it some day. I hope Arkane is doing okay though.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D
