[Steam Alpha] Death is not obvious enough with disabled postprocessing
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If you have postprocessing set to disabled, it can sometimes be very difficult to tell that you have died. With with PP enabled you get a very blurry screen, with PP disabled you get no visual indication at all. This can be a bit confusing and annoying since you are left wondering why your avatar isn't responding to your input for a few moments before you realize you are in fact ragdolling.

Also, If you have PP off, you have same view underwater w/ diver goggles like w/o 'em.

Even with postprocessing disabled, there should be blood on the screen to indicate damage.

I have PP off and i get blood splats on my screen, like Khan said.

Also even without that i can't imagine it being a big frustation as you describe it. If you drop your gun without telling your character to do so you're most likely not 100% healthy.
