Need a way to diable camera bob in Tomb Raider 2013
Camera bob in the game is killing me. It's so bad I can't play :/ There has to be a way to at least lessen the camera sway during gameplay. Tried the FOV regedit stuff, but it didn't help with the motion sickness.

Hopefully CD/Nixxes an add an option to remove the camera movement.

As I understand it it's there for a reason. I know of at least one way to deal with your problem, take anti-motion-sickness medication before playing.

The bob was pretty nex gen for me. In previous games she walked like she was on a bicycle. My friend claims to hate lots of old games because they made him dizzy. You should get used to it though.

Suffering from it too. I don't mind the odd bob for some of the things - like the windy canyon, but having it constantly bob just makes me go green slowly.

well all i can say is do not play this game in eyefinity you will puke your guts out with the swaying on the additional monitors.

yes agreed, the near constant camera bobbing and shaking in a 3rd person game is very very annoying.
i honestly barely notice it. i see it if i actually look for it, but rarely if i'm paying attention to the game itself.

I'd definitely like an option to turn it off. It wasn't a big problem in my first playthrough but now I really notice it and it really bugs me.

It's not timed to Lara's movements properly and it doesn't so much bob as it does jitter.

I like games with a bobbing camera and generally appreciate the effect but this game just doesn't do it properly.

I agree. I can't play longer than an hour with the random camera shake. I end up wanting to throw up.

Please give us an option to turn this off!

Yup it's got to go, I made it pretty far but today enough was enough

Maybe you should instead seek medical help? I mean don't get me wrong, but it is a problem with your health, after all.

I think it's has to do wtih motion resolution of our monitor/display (or maybe response time? cmiiw)...
if i play using my lg 23" lcd monitor, i will feel little bit dizzy too (way to many blur object when the camera is paning/shaking).
BUT if i were using my panasonic plasma as display i do not feel headache anymore (TBH, maybe sometimes i felt dizzy too, but certainly not as severe as when i using lcd).

It's not actually. Like FoV sickness, headbob sensitivity is hardwired into the way some people's brains process what their eyes are showing them. It's not a health issue at all.

I don't have that problem but I could also read books and play gameboy on car rides while a lot of other people wouldn't last 5 minutes before puking up their breakfast.

To get an idea how the motion of games can affect your ability to keep your lunch down, try playing Half Life 2 on a laptop while sitting in the passenger seat of a car on a trip.

At least for me, it really doesn't work.

Once again, so many people show that they have zero empathy or understanding for people who "aren't like them". Well bad news for you... while you don't have a motion sickness problem yet, the chances of getting it increase as you get older. Guess no one will feel sorry for you when it's your turn.

As if that's not bad enough, there is a form of motion sickness known as Meniere's disease (or watchmaker's disease) that is associated with doing small, repetitive motions with the hands over long periods of time. Those of you who have played video games since childhood might want to watch out for that one!

Yes, a patch or at least the option to disable the bobbing would be nice. I really want to play, but after trying to power through a second time for ~2hrs, I got the sickest I've ever been from playing games. No puking or anything but couldn't really do anything but get in bed. This is also with taking some non drowsy motion sickness pills haha. I'm not a casual gamer either, have done whole day gaming sessions on many occasions. Others may not experience this, which is awesome for yall, but I have enjoyed the little I did play and would like to finish up the game :)

I have actually put the game on the shelf until a Patch addresses this issue.
