    Third

    Is there still the option to play in third person view?

    I've searched around and found these:

    According to the steam thread and what I've tested in game, it seems the devmap command has been patched out.

    Currently, when typing in "pm_thirdperson 1" it says it does not allow it during multiplayer. (Although I'm playing solo with bots. Is there a way to turn the online portion off so the game recognizes it as single player instead of multiplayer?)

    I have noticed I can type "devmap mp/" into the console which comes up with an error, but afterwards I can type "pm_thirdperson 1" and it will actually change the camera into third person view. The problem with this is that any progress made towards the game after this point doesn't save. I lost several hours of progress the first time this happened and tested a few times after that with the same result.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    try g_gametype "2" this is an id tech engine and that was always the variable iD used to set game type to single player

    Thanks for the reply. I tried both g_gametype "2" and g_singlePlayer "0" but I get an 'Unknown command'

    I've been using the following to test stuff as well but can't find anything that proves useful:

    The command is pm_thirdperson 1, but I believe you need cheats enabled.

    How do I enable cheats?

    net_allowCheats 1
    pm_thirdPerson 1


    You can also use:
    pm_thirdPersonAngle
    pm_thirdPersonHeight
    pm_thirdPersonRange

    When I try 'net_allowCheats 1' it states 'net_allowCheats is read only.' Is there something else I have to do beforehand?
    Thanks.

    Well, you can't use cheats in multiplayer, for obvious reasons. Make sure you're playing in single player (Solo).

    You may have to launch the game with +net_allowCheats 1 as a command line option, so the game knows from launch that you are cheating and it can disable or enable a whole bunch of low-level stuff right from the get go. This can be done easiest by right clicking the game in Steam and selecting Launch Options.

    I've added that into launch options, but nothing seems to be different. Typing 'pm_thirdperson 1' into the console stills say not available in multiplayer. Should I be typing this in game (inside campaign mission)? Or on the main menu? I've been doing this in the actual game itself so far, as doing it on the main menu allows the command to go through but does not seem to activate it as it still starts in first person when a game starts.

    I'm pretty sure I'm playing in single player but just to confirm. What i'm doing is going into Campaign, choosing a mission, and visibility and play mode is both set to Solo. Is that all it requires for it to be set as single player?
