View Full Version : Hidden feature in source code
October 4th, 2000, 01:19 PM
I was just looking into the code of Legacy, when I found something odd. In the v_video file, there's some feature called "view tilting". I checked the logs, and it seems that Fab programmed a feature where the screen tilts when the player dies. But it doesn't seem to be activated (not sure it was fully programmed or not). In the log he also mentioned he'd make a choice in the options screen whether or not the screen would tilt. Now then, Boris or Hurdler, could you please check this out and make an option for in the options screen? I'd love to test it out, even though it's such a small feature.

If screentilt was indeed an option, think of the possible coolness. You could use it in matrix-esque mods for running up walls and stuff or for some cool swiming action.
Jumping the gun a bit, yes. But an old man can dream, can't he?

I guess that would be something similar to Perfect Dark, where the screen tilts when a player dies. Of course, in that game Perfect Dark she doesn't just tilt when she dies, but just bucks up, falls on the knees, look up and then drop dead. Would be cool.
