Hi all, this problem is not a priority for my game progress, but I am curious to know how to solve it. When I use the light saber (99.99% of the time) the visual pass to the third person. How can I switch to the first person view? The dedicated button does not seem to work and in the configuration screen there is only the option for guns, but not for light saber (like there was in JO). I find that the third person view is nice for jedi/sith duels (so far I am still playing only in SP), but for the rest of the game I prefer the first person view (it easier for me to coordinate the movements, especially when I have to do precise jumps or movements like that). Thank you in advance.

actually the third person view is way better for getting a good overview for all the moves. that's why I zoomed my camera farther away, I use cg_fov 100 now. try modifying this number to the smaller, and you'll get closer to first person.

Thank you. I will try. I agree for the moves. As I said in the original post, I like the third person for the saber fights with other jedi/sith because I can see the moves I do in fighting. The issue, at least for me, was that for the rest of the game I move more accurately in first person (especially in levels like "Level 18 - Cult Sighting - Chandrila" where I have to do precise jumps between bridges and roofs). Eventually in that part of the game I can go with some gun, but I prefer the light saber (even if I am not interested to do a advanced move on a stormtrooper). Thank you again. I will try your hint.

Yes, basically it is what I am doing. The first person view is just a personal preference. As I mentioned in the original post this issue is not a priority, I will get use to the first person view. Thank you anyway.

many ppl just got used to first person very much because of previously played shooters.

Yes, in fact I am one of them. :p Since Doom I always got FPS (the Quake serie, Jedi Knight series [that use to give the option], etc.).

When I read the gamepla FAQ for JA it said "third person perspective is mainly used for lightsaber combat". "Mainly"? Kinda deceptive since it's ALL you get....IMHO. I was expecting something like Outcast and was severely dissapointed with JA, so much so I never completed 1 level (third person makes me dizzy). I am just hoping they will add first person saber in a patch so I can fire the game up again. Does anyone know if KOTOR has first person saber?
