you know allot of FPS games can give you a heavy headache if you play it too much, cause it has something to do with your screen rotating oftenly or something, thats why i dont play that much FPS because if i play it too much i could puke, infact ive allready puked when i played the medal of honor series, it has to do with the colors or something,

and you know some third party maps thats not rendered yet, you can see like a bright light of colors, those stuff can make me puke too,

but the funny thing is, i could play for hours on the official maps of 0.48 with out having any headaches,

but when i played 0.49, i had headaches in less than 3 hours.
does this have to do with the HDR lightning or the widescreen or something?

That's motion sickness.

It's an unusual reaction, and it's very hard to say what causes it. You could try to smooth out your playing style, since quick jerky movements in game could make it worse.

Or you could take Dramamine, or chew on candied ginger or drink ginger tea.

it could also be eye strain. I get it ALOT... just take a break, maybe a nap, then you'll feel better.

or it could be migranes triggered by photosensitivity. the brightness could be a factor, ry turning it down in the options menu (I can't remember where it is in ET, under view I think, the one with the screen res and stuff)

i think i know whats causing the problems, its the dynamic eye feature,
i've increased the dynamic eye, thats what was causing the headaches,

but i turned it off now, i think it wont make me dizzy anymore now that ive turned it off.

That makes you dizzy? it just makes the scene brighter as you walk out into the sun and darker but still well lit when you walk into a dark room.

lol. Perhaps you need to just rest for a while and take a nap. Ive seen worse, TCE lets you stay on the ground only, AvP as an alien lets wall wall crawl at high speeds and pounce at 50 miles an hour spinning all over the place 360 degrees and there is a cheat that makes everything look like tis underwater and waving and bending making actualy nausea and puking.

I know what you mean by the headaches, its the reason i cant play ET, and when .49 came out, i got them again from playing it.

I turned off everything i possibly could (so much for enhancements) including wallmarks (which caused hella lag)....and now i can play it again....however, its just not as much fun as .48, probably cause all you do now is trip over stuff in ur way to kill people. lol

bah...

I get headaches like these when I'm playing things that are in High-Def...

But never when playing .49. :P

Try the 20/20/20 rule... Every 20 minutes, take 20 seconds and look 20 feet away. IDk if it works or not.

I dunno, I never get headaches except if I get like the 7th hour straight on ET. That I seldom do and I dont usualy get dizzy on any game unless I am watching someone else play.

I don't think I can play ET 7 hrs straight. my short attention span'll kick in half-way through, and I'll move on to something like CoD or W3D

I never play a game non-stop for more than an hour...

I usually get up, eat something, do some crunches and pushups, then go back to playing...

lol the 7 hour thing ofcourse has some breaks I just leave myself AFK and nobody really minds. Ofcourse, I seldom do 7 hours a day because I have other things I want to do like chat with a friend, cook, and things that I have to do like handle the forums and learn C/C++ and sharpen my 3d skills.
