Motion sickness Source engine

#1kmmmanPosted 11/6/2008 6:06:41 AM
Those who have played the demo and also suffered from motion sickness in HL2, how is the field of view on this game? Does the demo allow changing FOV values? I'm very interested in this game, but so far all source engine games except Portal have given me serious motion sickness problems. It's well known that HL2 had the same problems with large numbers of folks, so I'm trying to get some early feedback on this. Thanks.

Yeah, I can't play this game either (dammit!) due to motion sickness. Lame. I should also state I'm playing the xbox demo, for the record.

HL2 gave me problems, but this didn't at all. I think this game improved over that issue.

The PC version lets you put a code in the console that fixes the POV so that you won't get sick so easily.

I'm DLing the L4D PC version demo and the 360 version demo at the same time right now. =p

But if the L4D PC version uses the same type of options menu as other source games, the advance graphics settings SHOULD have a slider for fiddling around with the field of view.

Not as bad. HL2 was really dizzying, this game doesn't give you motion sickness too much.

Half Life 2 always gave me a headache after playing it for a while.
This game, Portal, and Team Fortress 2 didn't.
So I'll assume you're safe.

this one gives me motion sickness just as half-life 2 did. although it seems to take a bit longer to kick in.
