Poll to keep first person view

Postby AnthonyBF2 » Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:32 pm

I am making this poll to see how important first person view gameplay is to people who play SWBF2 on the PSP. I have created and tested a mod that completely eliminates first person items such as hands and hand textures but have not confirmed if I actually want it to be like this. This clears a good chunk of video memory in the PSP which is very important as this extra video memory can be used on more important things such as the quality of objects, characters, and vehicles. I personally am in favor of removing it because I'd rather have the extra video space for things I feel are more important. This poll will be active forever so if you vote and change your mind, you can revote.

Without first person junk the following things have been made possible:
- most Tantive IV objects skinned at 128x128
- 256x256 radar screens on most maps
- More Death Star objects skinned at 128x128
- Added 256 skins for vehicles in Mos Eisley and Yavin Arena
- 256 skins for all four vehicles in Hoth
- Clone wars started working on Crash Site map (not sure video ram was making it crash but I noticed it works now)
- Most SWBF2 Kashyyyk objects skinned at 128 with a 256 map texture

Remove it in favor of going more hi-def. It's super cool that you found a way to up the ante. Seems like a small tradeoff.

Agree with you 100% but there are people our there who like FPV a lot so I will let this poll run until version 8 to see where it goes.

Remove it. SWBF2's first-person mode has always been garbage anyways.

Seeing as I almost never use first person (In any game game where it's optional), I say remove it.

playing always 1st perspective. Just some weeks ago I play 3rd sometimes in EA SWBF.

But since I'm not playing psp, don't take care of me and remove it, if it makes the mod better ;)

Hmm. I wonder how much I can gain from removing first person with the Xbox mod. Pound-for-pound it'd be a lot less I'd assume, but it might improve overall stability.

I'll send you my hex edits if you need them unless you're using mod tools to make sides manually.

I'm unable to vote due to the "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again." bug but like everyone else, I wouldn't mind seeing it removed.

Yeah, it is done then. FPV is history. I can't see enough people voting for it to stay at this point seeing how the current vote meter looks like a red lightsaber.

I do not play on the psp either but maybe two things I'd like to say:

1. Did you try lowering the FP textures and even models by lowering their texture quality AND just keeping one arm model+texture for one side only? Like all clones share the same hands, all rebels do...Maybe except for droids. Oh and did you try replacing the First person model with the third person one? You could save more textures and models by using this method if you decide to remove it completely.

2. @Marth: Why has Bf2's first person always been garbage (anyways)? I don't think it was that bad. Maybe it coulda been done better. But compared to other games I think it's not the worst.

To be honest, I just didn't care about messing with first person... at all. Just like when I had to rebuild the HUD, I trashed all the weapon icons to save time instead of taking forever to get it right. Same thing for first person, I had no care to work with it so I figured removing it completely would save me time which is will.

To be honest, removing FPS in the PSP SWBF2 would put the game in line with the other two Battlefront games on PSP, and if it means you can add more detail, then losing FPS is a small price to pay.

:D Never really use it, might as well if its going to help the fps. Like ggtuck said, it actually puts it more in linr with the other swbf psp games.

I thought I'd create an account to give my two cents about the FP view in Battlefront. I might be one of the few people who likes FP view, but I think it plays a large role in differentiating BF 2 from Elite and Renegade Squadron. It's the only game I can come to for first person in Battlefront on the portable, and I like having it around.
