    Question "Internal" view

    Anyone tried the internal view for a good amount of time?
    Usually the view from the very front of the thing you're racing in hasn't been a turn-on to me in any game, and I was expecting no different in Wipeout, mainly because of the speeds you're racing at.

    Change is always a bit of fun though, so I gave it a go on phantom class, while doing my 99 laps on Metropia, and I was surprised at how easy it was... in a way it was easier, while making the game feel faster and more exciting, and I got really good... is there something wrong with me here? I might start using it more often.

    Your "Internal" view: opinions?

    [EDIT] I apologise for my n00bness, this should reeally be moved to The Pilots Lounge :/ mods help?

    I'm with you on this one. Internal view feels faster, more intense and personally I find it easier to line up for cornering.
    There's not enough internal view pilots in my opinion - so keep at it

    I never thought about that but you're absolutely right, the external camera is always a bit delayed in turning, and internal isn't.

    I never gave internal view a chance, it feels really wierd for me, but maybe I'll try it out some time.

    Internal view has a different effect in different game versions, as for example between HD and WO3, so perhaps this thread should be left here in the HD section.

    I've attempted to get the hang of internal view on HD a few times. It really does feel faster, more engrossing and more intense. Sadly, I've always failed. I can handle a few races but not much more. Controls feel too twitchy, whichever ship I use, and the faster speeds tend to give me a headache.

    I did a comparison while doing some TT once and my results using internal view weren't bad, but they weren't nearly as good as close external view. With internal view, even when I felt I'd done a really good lap or session, the results just weren't as good as I expected. This might be due to a lack of dualshock at the time. I couldn't tell easily whether I was scraping walls, which will always be a handicap, unless you never scrape walls. I hadn't spent a massive amount of time on it, so I didn't expect amazing results, but as I said, it always felt like it went better than it actually had.

    Something that I'd be intrigued to know is how certain things appear in internal view compared to external. A major thing would be the effect online when you get near a ship and get turned around from a laggy collision. I have a feeling that the effect doesn't appear nearly as drastic on the screen from internal. But without being able to see both at the same time, it's hard to tell.

    The biggest disadvantage with internal view IMO is that you basically can't see anything while doing a barrel roll.

    Lance: Exactly what do you mean with different effect?
    I tried WO3 with internal view (not cockpit), and the only difference I could see is that there are icons instead of visual effects for shield etc...

    I dig this topic up just to say that I totally agree with that.
    I've given internal view a try and I'll stick to it. Im not used to it yet but I'm really enjoying the game even more and I can see that I already have much better lines in corners.

    Internal view is wierd to me after you perform a barrel roll.

    I've always played internal view, but I'm trying to switch to get used to the external view.

    I was hoping it would help me with the beat Zico trophy (Damn you Zico!) but I'm starting to wonder how wise that decision is.

    Used to play internal with d-pad, and now I'm trying external with analog stick. (haven't played wipeout in a long time, and now, from other games I'm used to the analog stick and find piloting much smoother with it, with the exception of barrel rolls which I just can't yet consistently land onto the narrow pass.

    I've also changed my button config just last night, so at the moment I'm piloting like a drunken monkey. (not that I was ever very good).

    So I guess I'd have to say I prefer internal view, but I'm trying to adapt to external view, at least long enough to see if I can beat Zico.

    Hi Vilael,

    when i began playing WO, some guy said internal
    view gives you some advantage concerning cornering.
    That's true so far.
    What he did not mention was, that you will never
    become a good time-trialer or online-gamer without
    excessive barrel-rolling. This is exactly the point why
    i switched (man this was superhard !!!) to external
    view after 8 months of WO. One week later i had some besttimes, i formerly could only dream of.
    BR's are so much easier to handle with external view.
