“It’s just about details.”
SharpeYe is now in Steam Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=104523984
I was watching several first-person Machinimas this week, and I was wondering if there could be some way to simulate Mirror’s Edge head motion or get close to something of this nature.
SharpeYe is basically an addon that computes factors (is in water, is off the ground, speed…) to create head motion while adding additional sounds to simulate the environment (diving into water, hitting a wall, landing, wind Portal-like).
Also, since August 2010, 5 months after release, it includes Focus mode which allows you to pan the aim around in the screen. With ANY weapon.
Gravity Gun, SMG, Shotgun, anyone’s SWEP and even the sandbox Physics Gun !
Twitch Weaponry is a set of SWEPs by Devenger that have a ‘Twitch Aim’ feature when right clicking. Focus mode is a direct adaptation of Twitch Weaponry into a clientside application.
Devenger is like the main author of Focus mode, while all I did was to adapt it so that his code can be run anywhere. (With his approval :D)
It's clientside !
That means, you can use SharpeYe on ANY server even if they don’t have it (as long as scriptenforcer is disabled) ! If hosted on a server, it will NOT be sent to the players and will have NO effect. Though, it has an integrated feature for sending a copy to clients if a variable is toggled on, but I’ve yet to be testing it.
Here’s some video footage of it !
Main demo (August 2010) :
Renewed focus demo :
Customization feature footage (April 2010) :
Old outdated footage (March 2010):
It includes the recently added (August 2010) SharpeYe::Focus mode, based on Devenger’s work, which allows you to aim anywhere at the srceen. Please check this thread for its description and specifications.
Some addons may break SharpeYe for having conflicts over the camera. The addon that you are likely to have that will break it is Spacebuild.
The current only way to fix this is to go to the sharpeye_menu in debug mode, and use the user interface to unplug some of these addon features.
Retroactively, SharpeYe is LIKELY to break gamemode cameras / addon cameras such as Ascension, Gamemaster, well anything that uses a special camera, if those servers don't have Scriptenforcer enabled.
To fix it, you can open sharpeye_menu and untick “Enable Motion” which will unplug the motion feature until you re-enable it.
Name your folder “SharpeYe”.
You should use the SVN to keep a permanent copy of the addon when offline / when Google Code servers are down !
SVN (most updated) :
Stable release (use the SVN as much as possible to get Locale fixes and feature updates !) :
(This addon is an hybrid : It will download the newest version as a temporary copy everytime you join a server while connected to the Internet (= no matter if it’s Singleplayer or Multiplayer) ).
sharpeye_menu : Open the SharpeYe menu in popup mode. Open it at times ! If there are new updates something will be written in the menu. There’s a LOT of options for you to configure to fit your likings.
+sharpeye_menu : Open the SharpeYe menu in binding mode. Bind this to a key, and then like the Q menu, it will stay enabled as long as you press the key.
+sharpeye_focus : Enter Focus mode.
sharpeye_focus_toggle : Enter Focus mode in Toggle.
Recently done features :
- Redesigned menu with HayFrame.
