Ever since jedi knight i always played in 1st person mode and i couldn't stand playing in third person. This game is no exception. Unfortunately i haven't seen any screen shots and it didn't show anything in the trailer pertaining to that. I was just wonderig if anyone had screenshots or knew how the lightsaber interface was in 1st person. Personally, i think it would be just awesome if it was anything like thise parts in the star wars arcade game where you fight darth vader and boba fett with the lightsaber in the 1st person mode.

It was confirmed a while ago that you will be able to use sabers/guns in both 1st and 3rd person, it's just that the default for guns is 1st person and the default for saber is 3rd person (because of all the cool moves. ;) ).

Don't worry.

And welcome to the forums. Here...

That, and there's practically no depth perception with the saber in 1st person mode. At least that was the way in JK1, where everytime I was in first person mode, I had to fight the urge to run up against an opponent with the saber.

It would be neat if they released some screenshots of it in first person view mode.

PC Gamer said that the default is 3rd person for the saber, but you can always enter the Q3 console if you want to stick to 1st person......does that mean there is no option to stay in 1st person even with the saber??? I assumed there would be an option like in JK. Maybe PC Gamer got it wrong.

I think that fighting with the lightsaber in first person kind of takes away from the experience of saber battle... Just my opinion;)

I'm a 1st person mode fan too. Where can I see screens of those parts in the star wars arcade you were referring to?

It'll be like JK...you have control over what mode you play in...but the default is autoswitch to 3rd person with saber, 1st person the rest of the time.

I suspect we'll find that JK2's third person perspective works a lot better than JK1. Not that there was anything seriously wrong with the TPP in JK1, but the Raven gents did a smashing job with TPP in Heretic II.

I agree with you 100%. :)

As for messing with the console to switch perspective...I'd prefer just pressing a key on the keyboard to do that, like JK. I'm pretty sure they'll keep it that simple. I'd also prefer being able to set the default option within the game config screens, like you could turn off Saber Auto-switching in JK if you wanted. I want this game to be as easily configurable as possible...and I trust Raven to deliver, based on the options available for SOF and EF. ;)
