Hello, can someone give me a hand with this? I want to restore the "moving camera" effect that was present in the WON version of Half-Life, i saw many mods doing this. If you don't know what i'm talking about watch this video (link text), you will notice the camera slightly moving when the player does, that is what i want to re-implement.

Maybe this will help: reddit

I'm not sure if the cvars are present in Steam HL though.

Yeah I believe that's what it's called, Sven Co-op and Black Mesa restored it so I guess it can still be re-enabled for mods.

Not sure wether or not it works, but this site have an archived tutorial on implementing view roll: https://twhl.info/wiki/page/VERC%3A_View_Roll_When_Strafing_%28like_DMC%29

The formatting there is a bit broken, but the described method will work. All you have to do is restore the cl_rollangle and cl_rollspeed CVARs (hud.cpp) and then tweak the V_CalcRoll() in V_CalcViewRoll() (view.cpp). Use the DMC source code as a reference.

I've fixed the formatting for that page! Remember it's a wiki and anybody can edit a page if they notice something that needs fixing :(
