I believe the shaking effect was first used in the Build-engine games (Duke3D, Shadow Warrior, etc.)

I think that would be the best way to go about it. Then you could add scripted earthquakes to maps or add it to weapons or things if you like. Just don't forget it would need a range limit. Say you add it to the barrel, and it gets blown up from across the map by a monster (way out of players view), you don't want the screen shaking in that case.

Ideally, if you were to have screen shaking due to that, it should have some sort of falloff (ideally range^2/dist^2, but range/dist works too).

Also - hopefully you have an option to scale it down or disable it. >_< lol

Yeah, this approach takes the latter, like Quake 2 does, except the weapon in the middle doesn't move (though we could potentially do that as well).

Shaky screen requires passing -ffshake on the command line. It's part of the preliminary force-feedback code. You pass -ffrumble to enable controller force-feedback instead of shaky screen (not yet finished... need to find my FF controller).

If you don't pass -ffshake, shaky screen should never occur.

That's true -- except I accidentally enabled it by default while testing it!!! :oops:

We should make this an option in the menu code via a CVAR rather than a command-line switch - or even better, as something that can be defined in DDF directly ;)

Yeah. Leave the command line switch in case someone wants it for whatever they're playing, but also make it something that can be controlled via one of the DDF files. Did you notice the pause bug-fix from the other thread? You'll probably want that in the main repo.

So... I downloaded the latest GITHUB build. It appears to be based on older versions of 3DGE, why?

What with the opening 3DGE animation and what appears to be recently-added menu options now gone. And where's the option in the sound menu to have the pitching removed? Quote from changelog: "+ NEW: Sound Pitching (use s_pitch 0 to disable, or use Options->Sound)"
