Cool or Lame?

I've always wanted this feature. I think it would totally rock.

After you get killed you can press CAPS LOCK or something else and it will replay the last 5-10 seconds so you can see your death from a 3rd person view.

Cool or lame?

Exclamation Non-essential

That wouldn't be a bad feature, but it's probably not something that many people would be too bothered about

Kinda cool but how to implement it?
Game freezes while action replay takes place and then resumes after? Only in signle player? If in multiplayer does it freeze everything, if so do all the other players have to watch your replay? Etc.

Msotly i think if you acn't multiplayer it, it probably won't be in there.

It could be a clientside thing and you could jsut see yourself die again before spawning. Shouldnt be too hard to implement I would think

Heh... like the CoD killcam, kinda. That was fun.

Here's how it should probably work IMO:

1. Clientside config option (checkbox): enable instant death replay.

2. If that box is unchecked, your deaths look just like they do now only higher- poly.

3. If that box is checked, you see the replay. If you hit alt- fire during the replay, you revert to the standard realtime radgoll view.

4. Regardless of the box's status (checked or not), you respawn as soon as you click fire.

If it's done right (in a user- friendly way), it will be cool. If it's done wrong, it will be lame.


*edit* No, this kind of thing doesn't pause the game. Only the dead man sees his replay. I dunno the mechanics of it, but it worked just fine in CoD...

Yeah, it could be cool, for those "WTF BS" deaths.

Pretty much only pub useful, and would be auto-matically disabled if bForceRespawn=True.

Good way to help newb awareness too. Would be cool on many fronts.

haha good way to find those annoying snipers . i think a feature like this can be cool. if implented i think you should respawn when looking at it and just get some message above ure head so other players see ure watching your replay. it's then up to them to finish u or not. This way you can do it in gametypes like TAM and LMS. this way it can be a nice feature without any drawbacks.

also there should be a save funtion if you don't wanna watch it at that time. maybee a nice idea if you can see the best kills/deaths of players at the end of the match.

ah .. but if you were shot while viewing the replay would you *eh* continue the replay at the next spawn,etc ?

I think it would be cool
It should be extended to show the last frag/capture in the game as well ...

Sounds good to me, implemented the way Discord suggests. Then again, being that good I'm unlikely to ever see a replay

I like this idea. Perhaps make things such that the action can be automatically saved as a demo so you can watch it repeatedly.

That would take up a lot of disk space, and thte longer you're alive the longer and more space the live/death demo will take up. It would also mean that demos would have to be able to track certain events and only play those without starting the demo over again.

It would be interesting, but would probably loose its wow factor after a few months.

If you do this then i vote for an end game version of teh replay that tracks a longer replay of the winning event of any round. Flag capture, final frag, etc. Whilst showing the scoreboard screen.

Wasn't there something like this in Chaos or am I thinking of something else?

this kind of feature could disandvantage those players who are camping hidden on special places only known by few. This is not a matter of like or dislike camping (in fact IMO it s part of the game), but in this case the replay could then just destroy some tactical choices therefore I am not willing to see such thing...

It won't matter for them that much, because mostly this game is desinged so they can't do that. The sniper weapon has a nasty trace on it in 2k4, I doubt that will change to 2k7, hence Epic doesn't want that sort of thing happening. It would only help noobs who aren't quick enough to see that trace.

hehehe, i ve seen some experienced players really surprised with some crazy, smart and creative camping in Asbestos (in the 2x damage room on the roof over the lift), in Oceanic (many many places, at least 7 crazy camping/ambush spots there) , In Idoma (on the roof structure for instance), in deck17 (right under the roof, one shield gun jump over the 17 number), in Goliath (over the 50 shield bonus), in leviathan (right under the roof in the shock rifle room)... and it took them some shots to realize where it came from. In addition while camping you don t always need to use your lightning and then no trace is left.
that s the reason why I am not willing to see a frag replay if it destroys some tactical choice. (But don t misunderstand me, i am not saying that camping is good or not, i just say that it is part of the game, and that s reason why we have to respect that and deal with it, a replay would not deal with that aspect but would just destroy it --> unfair)

if you re looking for some wtf spots, stupid and idiots spots, unknown spots, smart and ridiculous spots and some other tricks well a good part of those i know about can be found there (sorry for my poor english):
