Please use setCameraTarget instead.

[[{{{image}}}|link=]] Note: remember to set players camera mode back to "player" on resource unload, or you will encounter the invisible player 'bug' if players camera is still set to fixed.

This function allows you to set a player's camera to either follow him or be fixed at a certain position.


bool setCameraMode ( player thePlayer, string mode )

Required Arguments

  • thePlayer: The player whose camera you wish to modify.
  • mode: The mode to be set. It has the following possible values:
    • "player": Sets the camera to follow a player.
    • "fixed": Fixes the camera in a set position/rotation.


Returns a bool with a value of true if the function was successful, false otherwise.


function spawnScreen ( source )
        setCameraMode ( source, "fixed" )                                     -- Make the camera fixed (instead of following the player)
        setTimer ( setCameraPosition, 1000, 1, source, 160.15, -1951.68, 50 ) -- Set the coordinates of the camera
        setTimer ( setCameraLookAt, 1000, 1, source, 165, -1951.68, 50 )      -- Make the camera look at specified coordinates
