Hi everyone.

I have been playing Games for many years ( more than 20) and never felt sick due to a Game, i have bought DOOM months ago but just yesterday i decided to start playing it and for my surprise after 5 minutes i felt so sick that i threw up and have to stop playing, 10 minutes later i felt well and started to play again but the same thing happened ( Nausea and Headache ) :(

Does anyone have any idea what could be happening?

That's really unusual , played it through it's entirety like 3-4 times and no such thing happened. Well nothing like this ever happened to me playing any game as far as I remember.

maybe it's the motion blur. the only thing that ever made me feel sick was trying 30 fps, played for 15 minutes tops and whole day was ruined with headaches and nausea.

Probably have some weird lag in your system that is throwing your mouse movements out of sync with the display... that tends to cause motion sickness like you are describing.


Because that's what this is, unfortunately for you.


Or, something else is causing you to be more sensitive than you have been before. It happens.


Some games do this for me too, and how sensitive I am to it varies. It was dealing with this that lead me into the whole micro-stutter stuff back in 2900XT days. It's what makes microstutter a real issue, as high levels of it can be pretty jarring like this. sometimes adjusting clockspeeds can fix things enough that it disappears, too, which further complicates things.

It can also be some various settings in game, too. something about the visuals is screwing with your head, anyway, and until you can "fix" it, I wouldn't blame you for not playing . :p

On the Steam forum they are saying : try turning FOV (Field of view) up. Yes Motion blur can do it, have had it happen to me.

I know sometimes head bob can leave you feeling sick and give you a headache if Doom has it in the settings try turning it off.

I was googling and most of the answers are about this Motion blur, I don't think it's nothing to do with fps because i play at 135/140 fps.

Probably have some weird lag in your system that is throwing your mouse movements out of sync with the display... that tends to cause motion sickness like you are describing.
I don't use a mouse to play.

Or, something else is causing you to be more sensitive than you have been before. It happens.
Maybe i am getting too old:confused:

Joke.

I typically use a PS3 controller for all the games I play , with Doom however I found it literally unplayable and had to switch to mouse and keyboard. Try playing it that way.

I get the naseau from playing sometimes, the indoor First Person Shooters because of all the running around and walls turning every which where heh. It says i'm pretty sure in most of the game instruction manuals to stop playing and take a break if you experience such a thing. It is motion sickness I think.

I get sore (red) eyes from playing a game for longer than an hour, since monday my right eye still hurts a bit sometimes.
No nausea though.

"
Symptoms
Motion sickness is pretty easy to recognize. Headaches, dizziness, nausea, heavy sweating, and excessive production of saliva are signs that something is definitely wrong."

You could try these things:

"

Treatment and Reducing the Risk In The Future
If you feel any of the above symptoms, stop playing immediately. Things are going to get worse before they get better if you keep playing. Try to open a window or go outside and get some fresh air.

If you find that you do experience motion sickness from videogames, there are a few things you can do to hopefully prevent it in the future.

  • Turn on more lights. Playing in a dark room is bad for your eyes anyway.
  • Sit further away from the TV/monitor.
  • Your body can get used to it after repeated sessions (a pattern of playing and getting sick, stopping, and then restarting later when you feel better until you stop getting sick entirely) when your brain finally realizes that what you are seeing and doing isn’t actually harming you. That process of getting used to it can take a while and isn’t pleasant, however.
  • There are some medications that help (Dramamine, Bonine, Meclizine and Benadryl) and while they can work, they also all make you drowsy. Not good for gamers and I do not recommend them.
  • Recommended Treatments: From my first hand experience, I recommend a couple of things. Ginger pills work tremendously well and don't have any side effects. You can also try special wristbands called "Sea Bands" that put pressure on a nerve in your wrist that sends the motion sickness signals to your brain. Take a ginger pill and put on the wristbands before you start playing. Combine the two for better results."

wireless Xbox controller? might be the lag from that? DPC latency might be biting your butt hard.
It can be used wireless or with the cable, i have never used it wireless.

Sounds like Motion / Simulation Sickness. I have this too. Can't play first person games or even watch them when they have a narrow field of view. Symptoms i get is nausea, headaches, dizziness.

Before I knew about this, I always thought it was related to a specific game / game engine since it always happend when I was playing games which used the Unreal Engine.:rolleyes:

Try to increase the field of view. Usually it will get better when you choose a value beyond of 90°.

Try playing a bit with settings.
You should definitely disable motion blur, because this can be one of the biggest culprits.
Then, adjust the FOV and see what feels more comfortable to you. As @Dacur said, there were some threads about this, but a simple "bump it up" won't do the trick. FOV settings feel differently to each person.
I don't remember the default FOV in DOOM, but I usually like to keep mine at 100-110 in most games. Some people go with 120 and up, but for me personally it looks weird on 16:9 screen. At 130 my eyes get tired fast.

This. I usually find it far easier to play FPS games with a wide FOV. I don't usually get sick from gaming alone but, it's usually enough to push me over the edge if something else is already making me more susceptible to nausea and headache. If there are psychological manifestations like short-term lethargy, it could be something as simple as being dehydrated and the game just pushing you over the edge, even more so if you haven't had this problem before.

Doom has probably the best motion blur implementation I have ever seen. But I agree some people might still somewhat sensitive to such things.

Motion blur should have no impact on input lag , not at 60fps+.

Nope never ad something like nausea by playing a game .
I know that i don't like the effect of motion blur but didn't gave me any effect as well.
I used to have it on when playing TF2 and never go any simptom.
I think depends from people to people .
The new Doom as well the old same.

More and more of this crap thanks to garbage console ports that have weird narrow locked FOV. For me, everything can wobble around and I won't get dizzy, but give me a tunnel vision FOV and I'll feel weird almost immediately. Not necessarely sick, just annoying eye strain. To no one's suprise, because human FOV goes almost up to 180° (90° active field of view and additional 90° peripheral vision). Artificially forcing it down on screen is not healthy...

In my case it's a specific Game ( DOOM )
Try to increase the field of view.
I don't remember the default FOV in DOOM, but I usually like to keep mine at 100-110 in most games. Some people go with 120 and up

If i am not mistaken 110-120 should be OK but i have seen people go with 200 and up.

Never had problem with it in other Games.


The new Doom as well the old same.
Infatti.

Leggendo la Wikipedia di DOOM ho trovato questo:

Per ottenere una buona fluidità di gioco con i processori dell'epoca, Carmack progettò il motore grafico in modo tale che rappresentasse una realtà a tre dimensioni, ma partendo da un piano bidimensionale: il Doom engine non è in grado di ottenere due stanze sovrapposte, perché la differenza di altezza è solamente visiva, mentre il mondo di gioco rimane su un unico piano. Nonostante queste limitazioni, l'illusione era particolarmente riuscita, tanto da provocarenausea ad alcuni giocatori.

Sorry for those that don't speak Italian.

FOV of 200 degrees is impossible to be useful. 110-120 yes, although it'll create a "fish eye" effect already (distorted perspective). At 200° everything would look stretched. Even on ultra wide monitors.

agree but ""If it was used in a 3d system" it would be better and peripheral vision may be more Natural"
3D Systems bring their own potential Motion / Simulation Sickness problems for some people

VR has other problems yes, because visuals say you're moving, but your inner ear (balance organ) is saying that you're not moving. And that confuses some people, making them sick.
