Does anyone has any info on that option?
I know you only get it when you can't respawn and game is either ending or you're turning into a bird.
I am hoping this can be used with respawn and with the game time delay it has.
I like being able to see where I got shot from, the panning camera, and the music.
Also it prevents players from thinking they got shot through a building or killed by any other impossible shot by showing them where it truly came from.
Thanks!

Although not a kill cam Kegety's has released his "spectating script" a while back. It enables you to spectate when dead.
However, I think this version is bugged, some people have made some fixes but I dont know if kegety's allowed a re-release.

A killcam in arma, specially for MP like you want is something not many people will like :)

Thanks for the reply.
Don't play MP, I only play COOP.
I haven't heard one bot object to this ideal yet.
That link is good. However, you're dead spectating.
My ideal is, after you're shot dead, the Death Scene runs and then you respawn.
In COOP of course.

I dont know any killcam script other than the above.
And Coop is MP too right? I mean you arent playing Coop missions on your own, cause that would be playing SP. ;)

I was told Coop is multiplayer, Humans vs bots/ai.
What you said about some players would not like the killcam in MP, I took that as Humans vs Humans.
It would be cool if we could disable the turning into a bird and enable respawn at that point in the game.
That death scene/killcam/music must be part of the game engine that can't be accessed and that code/script only gets read when there are no more ai slots to spawn into.
Be cool if there was a way to access it.
Instead of having a respawn timer appear or turn into a bird, you could have that killcam scene and see where you was shot from, then respawn.
Thanks for the replies.

Thanks Foxhound.

You have a PM.
