There are no cockpit views in the game!
Only 3rd person and HUD only.

would that be for all versions Rends? Cause it says there are in the link that I posted. This is for the final PC version.

There is also a first person mode as evidenced by this pic:

Darth Maul isn't a mistake. He's been one of the confirmed Heroes for a long time...

In the beta:

-you could use First & Third person view for infantry (but not Jedi).

-you could use only Third person view for vehicles (there were no turrets usable in the beta).*

-you could use First & Third person view for ships. HOWEVER, in SWBF1, you had "cockpit views" (an "Inside the cockpit" graphical HUD in first person) which the SWBF2 beta lacked. It was just like a zoomed in view from first person perspective.

So does the final PC game have the same, or what?

* In both games of course you could change positions on a vehicle (like as a gunner). Those "first person" views were typically locked without the HUD grahpics (much like the ships). So you either had third person or first person for a vehicle position (1st person gunners, third person drivers/pilots).

Perhaps the cockpits could be 'edited' in.

Well that sucks...

At least they could have ported over the ones from SWBF1. Granted, that's not ALL the vehicles (minus the Episode III ones) but still...

No Cockpit View for any vehicle or fighter in the game. Yes i find it a big step backwards to walk the ATAT in 3rd person only. They also left the gunner position out of the ATAT but itīs still there if you use a ATST.
When flying fighters you can switch to HUD only view.
Yes Kurgan i hoped they used at least the cockpits from SWBF1. sad they left them out. It was nice to drive the ATAT from Cockpit.

Damn, well from what I'm hearing about this game, it looks as though they didn't include a lot of stuff from last year's game, in otherwords, not good for longevity. Also the missing cockpit views are a very big deal with me, though I wonder why the guy from 1up.com would write that, knowing they aren't putting cockpit views in the game? Maybe, just maybe they are including them in the NTSC version.......... hopefully. Sounds like the game is turning into another console port, but I hope not.

By the way Rends, someone said you might be able to implement the cockpit views into the game if they aren't included. Any truth to this?

NTSC Version? Well iīm talkin about the PC version and it doesnīt support NTSC or PAL but VGA ;-)
Well i donīt give up on Cockpit view. Maybe they will include them in a patch and yes it would be possible to add them if they release Modtools for this game

I meant the U.S. version, sorry. I guess I'll still get the game and wait for a patch. I think this game still smells like it was rushed to meet the DVD release but you guys know how to mod an ok game into a great game.
