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!

Hi @stgatilov (cc @nbohr1more)

After some more thought, I really do think "pm_mantle_roll_mod" is a better cvar name, because it matches "pm_bobroll" and other "pm_*" naming. If someone learns about "pm_bobroll" and changes it for head bobbing, they may also search for other "roll" cvars. This will make it easier for them to find "pm_mantle_roll_mod".

I've attached a patch, making it easy to rename the cvar before 2.11 is released.

Thank you!

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
