Is it possible to add blur to reload animations using the BF2 engine? I'm just discovering possibilities of direct X 9.0 and graphics with my new computer. so I don't know what is possible to implement regarding those eye candy stuff. Usually I hate blur, no matter when speeding in a racing game or when it comes to supression effects. But I think this was pretty cool.

Whats the point? To make you focus to look at the shiny gun?

Not exactly realistic, you aren't focusing all your eyesight on a gun as you reload, and usually you're looking up and just doing it by feel....

Unless its your first time or you a fresh recruit or something, but i would asume that if your in the army you would have gotten used to your weapon.

Yep, remember, in this game we're portraying combat vets, not fresh recruits (unless we have say, a berline 45 volksturm map, though even then, the old guys would have been in WW1....)

Your already vulnerable enough when reloading as it is. Anyway, its a bit of a crummy effect anyway.

Your eyes only have 2 degrees of full focus thus meaning most of the screen should be blurred, starting from the least towards the center, to the most in the outer rim, I don't believe bf2 has a Depth Of Field shader, which is what your inquiring about, so even then I don't think its possible.

If we were to put this in FH2, we'd probably add the blur to the gun not the view, the soldiers weren't looking at the gun, they kept their eyes on the targets while reloading.

Not really.

Well, depends on what gun it is. For instance, the M1 Garand normally required a look down to load. Just because you don't want to get garand thumb, pinch your fingers etc. Don't tell me that a soldier would get the feel for it. I own a garand and have loaded/shot hundreds and hundreds of rounds in it and I always need to look down when loading it.

Plus if your with a squad of soldiers, behind cover in a firefight, there is no need to keep your head popped up while reloading. This is not encouraged by real life Military combat (infantry) units. I've seen a few videos of U.S soldiers reloading their weapons in a firefight while standing, exposing there head and upper chest. They were immediately pulled down by their fellow soldiers or Squad leader.
