Hi guys,

I've added a pivot for the cam to have more flexibility, so that the camera is able to look up all the way.
For instance near a building without it going through the floor:


Or all the way down, for instance near a cliff.


It then goes over the player's head and looks down (can see your own toes):



But I ran into 2 mysterious issues:

ISSUE 1: I've noticed in V6.0 that the campivot is *not* in the expected location behind the player,
but tends to live a life of it's own
, can see it on the left drifting away into the distance(see circled area).
This even though the camera itself is working fine, is behind the player as intended.
The other players haven't not moved yet, so there the campivot is still in place(see arrows).

How can the campivot *not* be in the correct x,y,z while the camera attached to this campivot *is* in the correct location behind the player??


ISSUE 2: In V6.1 I've also modified the UpdatePlayer() function into UpdatePlayer(locPlr as integer), for being able to control multiple players using types and arrays through the same code.

For instance in v6.0 it looks like this:


As can be seen I'm using the fields of the player type in V6.1.;


Why after converting all of the player references to it's type x,y,z fields, are the collisions behaving erratic and is the player at times reseting position to 0,0,0. ?




I can't seem to figure out why. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this, for I'm ready to pull my hair out. Any help is much appreciated.

I've included simplified cut down versions below in code boxes, but also as download for convenience.
