I''m getting motion sickness within about 10 minutes playing my game. Normally I don''t get sick at all. Is this something to do with my view matrix perhaps? Not strictly game-relevant, but... well, it is in DirectX and it does seem to be strictly only with my game so... Totally sucks trying to debug! ;-)

Does the camera move in unexpected ways? I remember getting a headache watching a friend play Doom. But I was fine when I played.

How's the framerate? Is it jittery?

What about the zoom factor (angle of frustum) in your rendering? That could do it too.

If your game plays in fullscreen then perhaps it''s gone and set the monitor''s refresh frequency to something really low. Low refresh frequencies can cause flickering that you may or may not notice consciously. This, combined with camera-craziness, may cause motion-sickness? I have no idea
