Does anyone know how I can increment/decrement the player camera offset along the axes? I am trying to make a (head bobbing camera effect). I have done the code below but they don't work as intended.

+ Code Snippet

Please help! It would make the gameplay in FPSC very effective.

Mriganka I have one I made awhile back, works great. Just along the "y" axis.
You can easily add more axis's if you need to?

Attach to a triggerzone anywhere in your level.

Thanks ncmako. The head bobbing looks great. But is there any fix for the weapon not moving along with the camera?

I made the above script, but it feels like the game has lag (although the camera changes at 30 times per second).

I had made a variation of the script, but for some reason the player's camera gets locked in the middle of the screen and can only move horizontally. Can you check what errors that may have caused this?

Mriganka Just a quick look and I noticed a couple syntax error's. It's "plrnotcrouched" or "plrcrouching"
Some use the "is" in the command, some don't
The weapon "bobbing" can be done if really needed by adding a few lines to the "gunspec"
I recall there's a "Y"offset when walking...

I looked and cleaned up the syntax errors but I still have this persistent problem of the player's view being locked up in the horizontal axes. I think it may have to do with me using both variables $CAZ and $CAX together (but $CAZ doesn'/t do head bobbing for me when the player is facing east/west). Do you know of any commands that check which direction the player is facing? I cannot find one in the unofficial syntax list doc.

ncmako I have found that using $CAX locks the player camera along the x-axis (horizontal axis) and $CAY along the y-axis (vertical axis). Any idea on how to counter that?

Just a thought, but can we even use 1/10's of a degree in the scripts for camera angles?
I never tested/tried it? When I had player "spin" in my scrap yard level just before a gun fight
I only used whole numbers (addvar=$CAY 3) to slowly spin player. Just a thought?

Edit: Yes, I can confirm that using decimals for the camera angle commands locks the script
I believe it's based on 360 for a full circle, with increments of one degree, so whole numbers are required.

ncmako there is the damn culprit!

I am not going with increments of 0.1 for all as there are 4 states

1. Player is moving
2. Player is running
3. Player is crouching
4. Player is jumping

Hopefully now I can make this well and good.

UPDATE -

I can confirm that the camera gets locked either way. Hope s4real and Nomad Soul are still working on BIMod so that they can sort this out. Till then I will have to do with $CAZ alone.
