Head movement in first person games

If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

Do you like head bobbing in first person games?

There isn't much point in having artificial head movements in a VR context since the player will be providing all the "natural movements". already. :P

Except the player isn't actually... y'know... running ;) I'd much rather some visual feedback on my character than nothing, even in a VR context.

Then again, I've never had a problem with motion sickness in any context, so maybe that's just me.

I like it but I prefer it low. I already move my mouse (and my actual head) a lot when playing , hehehe.

Yeah man I remember in quake 1 if you get shot with a nail your camera tilts 120 degrees to one side and back again in 0.2 seconds

I think that's what necks do

Should be timed with playerpawn steps, ideally aligned with actual head movement.

If any adjustments, should be slightly (or not so slightly) less than what the player model is actually doing, since we've got all sorts of muscles and involuntary reflexes and ways our eyes and brains automatically adjust so we don't see the shake in our ordinary movements.

First vid makes me think of someone holding a phone in front of them.

I don't actually play modern games so I didn't even know this existed until now, and after seeing the video, it kinda looks like the player has a really long neck :lol:

I like having an option to disable the headbobbing for the sake of people who are easily motion-sick, but otherwise love it. I can't play GZDoom anymore without gz-qtilt.pk3 + mousemovetilt.pk3 + realAim.pk3.

That much said, it seems redundant to include it in VR games so I'd vouch for removing it from VR games.

Mousetilt: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=47811&start=15#p814093

Real aim: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=47811&start=60#p826504

Both of these + Nash's QTilt mesh very nicely with Hideous Destructor.

The real aim module is interesting: Basically it makes your center-of-view drift when you move, and makes it drift farther and faster the faster you move. And it doesn't even interfere with certain features of Hideous Destructor! (i.e. the need to keep the T-Buster steady for the lightning bolt to properly proc). I know that Hideous Destructor already has some ambient screen wobble but this makes it even more lifelike and, as mentioned, doesn't interfere with the gameplay any.

Pretty sure Mousetilt actually includes QTilt already, so you don't need to load both. May be worth checking on that, I'm not sure.

AaaaaaaHA! You are correct! I mistakenly assumed otherwise because I misread Ral22 and Nash's wording in those post. Now I can declutter my ZDL load order a little! Thanks for the catch!
