(First Person) Character View Mode

Unread post by Steve » Wed Dec 26, 2018 2:07 pm

Happy holidays! Did Xanta Claws make an appearance this year on BGTSCC?!?

Anyway...who plays the game in First Person View? I recently started doing this for shits and giggles, and I find it, well...exciting! Especially when a mob comes up on your backside for a quick poke! LOL!

I only have one gripe with it though: the way the camera always follows and resets its position automatically. It is a bit too responsive, in my mind. But still a fun new way to play this aging game.

Anyone else play First Person mode?

There's a first person mode? How does one activate it, or you just mean character mode and 100% zooming in?

Something like that! Right, it sure ain't DOOM-fps, but close!

Discovered i can do it after about a month of playing and am playing only on this mode ever since. The immersion level is crazy, i much prefer the key movements and no running around due to misclicks.
It was a game changer in my experience and i recommend it always, get as close to the DDO moment to moment experience which i personally liked.

How exactly do I turn this on? Even if I zoom all the way, the camera sort of stays just over my character's head.

...or more like right behind my character's head.
