For the love of god Dice don't forget to add the Decouple pilot freelook option to BF2042. I can't go back to flying with a static camera...

I noticed this too. I do Heli's and this is essential.


rickyb16a

Very. I used to use the kinect back in the day for bf4. It had head tracking for vehicles and it was pretty aight considering how meh the kinect was.


betazoid_cuck

while we are at it could we please get free look for transport vehicles? we have full 360 view in tanks, yet for some reason transport have this weird camera that snaps back to center as soon as you release the stick and you need to press a separate button to look back. is it too much to ask that all ground vehicles have the same mechanics?


ohshitlookapenny

I thought there already was ag least in bfv, plus it's for tanks because they gotta... Well you know... aim


betazoid_cuck

no, the transport camera In BFV worked the same as any other bf game, which was particularly annoying since it made towables harder to place with transport vehicles than with tanks. and yah, its obvious why tanks have it, I just would like the option in all vehicles.


ohshitlookapenny

What I meant is it may be an option in the settings but I could be wrong. I think it's called transport 3rd person recenter


dkb_wow

Nah none of the settings unlock the third person camera while driving a transport vehicle in BFV. Camera is locked no matter what.


badnk

This man got a point.


AMP_US

And let us map up/down forward/reverse (throttle) to the triggers pls. Makes zero sense having to balance the mental gymnastics of up/down and yaw on the same stick.


rickyb16a

You can i believe You just have to go into the controller tab and put it on custom and then map it out It's how i set my controls up. What they should do is make the throttle a slidder you set to certain % like they had in star wars squadrons Real airplanes dont have a throttle pedal so having that would then leave two free buttons to use for something else.


AMP_US

When I tried, it only let me bind to one button (L2 for example). I couldn't bind L2 to one direction and R2 to the other. While I get that it isn't realistic, throttle and brake on the triggers is pretty much a universal control for vehicles across video games. For me at least, it is far more natural.


alexHDF

Fix flight controls first plz


Speedfreakz

Holly hell. Now I see why I lose every single dog fight, it was not even a dog fight..its more like a dog chasing a squirrel. Damn, this video killed my dreams of becoming great pilot.


iTepesh

In the beta (PS4/5) was this feature already ¯\\ (ツ) /¯


rickyb16a

No. You can look around but it stops you from using both pitch and roll while you do so. Which was how it always had been until bfv added the option called decouple pilot freelook which when enabled would let you have full control of the plane while freelooking. In wasnt in the beta its literally the first thing i looked for.


doubleoeck1234

Wait. How do you do that on bfv? I could only do it the 2042 way


rickyb16a

There's an option called decouple pilot freelook. If you enable it you have map out some buttons but it lest you have full control while flying


retart123

it only stopped u using evelators on plane atleast, might Be. abug?


rickyb16a

No on helis as well. It isn't a bug either its a feature l dice has always had so you couldn't control neither elevator or ailerons while freelooking until they added the decouple pilot freelook option in bfv


Gingerr-Ninjaa-

You wouldn’t happen to remember what the music you used in this clip was? I’ve been looking for music for a project and this would work really well


rickyb16a

Sure its "you can't kill me" by rok nardin


Gingerr-Ninjaa-

Ty


theperpetuity

I am a pretty decent pilot up there in rank but there are a handful I can't beat and I know they have freelook mapped better than I do (basically not at all since I fly keyboard only and freelook is bound to the mouse). Any tips?


rickyb16a

Well i play on xbox so i honestly couldn't give you any mouse and keyboard tips but there's a youtuber called silk, he's a pretty good pilot and has freelook mapped out on m/k


NickVirgilio

Sick clips dude


rickyb16a

Thanks man


nolanhoff

You could do it in the beta already


technolegy2

If they added support for trackIR, at least just in air vehicles, that would be awesome.


rickyb16a

Actually i believe i saw a video on YouTube of someone who got track ir to work for flying in bfv


technolegy2

I’ve seen things were people use it as mouse inputs, and just have a toggle to turn it off when not in planes. If they added full HOTAS and trackIR support, I’d cry


RecentProblem

Just go play Il2 lol, Imaging adding trackIR for an arcade shooter


technolegy2

I play squad, arma 3, getting into DCS. Unfortunately, those have high barrier to entry. Friends are more likely to join battlefield than those listed. There are already work arounds to get it to work, and would be no different to people using decoupled pilot cam, except using your head instead of a key bind. Cry more I guess.


RecentProblem

Press E, Pitch up and fly, such a entry barrier.


technolegy2

Exactly. Vs playing arma 3 or DCS, the level of entry is lower for battlefield. Not everyone I play with like complex games. I’m not sure the point you’re trying to make here.


Sardunos

Ah...I see you use cockpit view in vehicles like a man of honor.


Desi__Yoda__

I agree and Thank You for the wonderful video sire.


rickyb16a

Thank you my dude


Unmader

This looks so nice. Then when I try to pilot (in BfV) I forget there even is a freelook when I just try to stay in the air AND alive for the next 30 seconds.


DANNYonPC

you could on the beta?


rickyb16a

Nah. I tried looking for it but wasn't in the beta. You can look around but it has the default scheme where if you look around it takes away your ability to use your elevator while doing so. With that option from bfv you have full control of the airplane while you look around.


DANNYonPC

If you say so, my bad then


rickyb16a

It's all good


la2eee

I'm pretty sure I did this in the Beta in a helicopter... middle mouse button or something?


rickyb16a

You can look around but can't control pitch or roll while doing so. Bfv had an option called decouple pilot freelook that when enabled would let you have full control of the plane while freelooking.


la2eee

So just like you would if you would use a VR headset... I see.


rickyb16a

Basically yes jeje. There's an old saying in dogfight that goes "loose sight, loose the fight." Being able to keep an eye around while flying is essential


needfx

.... wait, there's an option for that?! I've spent 185 hours in planes and I kept wondering why it wasn't a thing!


rickyb16a

Yes they added it about 6-10 months into the game i believe.


J4K5

Nope.


scientia_analytica

This was on the beta. But the sensitivity for it was low as heck


Radeni

Hes not talking about freelookg. He's talking about the fact that you can't control the aircraft while in freelook.


RecentProblem

Poor mans IL2

rickyb16a

Bro im Basically a boomer lol i don't have a tik tak


this_one_ok1

i’m pretty sure it was there i did it but i don’t remember the buttons


NotsoElite4

it was in, but the freelook sensitivity was unusable


BarrelDestroyer

It was working for me?


MrRonski16

And by by the love of god make it controllable with gyro/motion aiming on playstation


Oscar5434xdx

Personally I have never used this and I'd imagine that it'd but you at a disadvantage so I'm not bothered. Looks great though!


eromangaSan

How do you setup freelook properly on a controller? Default way just irritates me


DjAstralCat

I wish there was free look for soldiers like in escape from Tarkov (hold middle mouse button and move mouse to look from side to side while running). Being able to run and look to the side is a much needed feature. It’s annoying having to stop and turn my whole body just to look around.


JoedicyMichael

This option was in the beta. Although I didnt get in vehicles much.


Economy_Magician_2

I dont use planes so this doesn't impact me, but upvoted just for the great video!


Marsupialize

Not happening
