Perfect Dark (Nintendo 64, Xbox 360)/PerfectHead

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of Perfect Dark (Nintendo 64, Xbox 360).

PerfectHead was a feature which would allow players to import photos from a Game Boy Camera via the Nintendo 64 Transfer Pak and apply them to heads for use on guards in missions and characters in the Combat Simulator. A pre-existing head model would be used as a basis for the new head. A box could be resized to capture a face texture from a photo; the photo's brightness could be adjusted at the same time. The head model itself could be reshaped in eight directions, with an additional depth slider. It was also possible to change the head's coloration and hairstyle. A preview of the head could be seen during the entire process.

The official reason for PerfectHead being scrapped was "insurmountable technical problems" - while the feature was fully functional, it would cause crashes when actually using the heads during gameplay.

The occurrence of the Columbine High School Massacre in the United States just a year prior to the game's release could've also played a part in the feature's removal.

No remnants of the PerfectHead features and code are known to remain in the game, however some dialog related to it can be viewed by using GameShark code 8009EDF8 00?? when playing without an Expansion Pak, where "??" is a number between 00 and 10. As well, there's some leftover text in the file used for the Combat Simulator and CI Training menus, which can be used to recreate the menus.
