|This function is deprecated. This means that its use is discouraged and that it might not exist in future versions, but there should be a more generic way to perform what it does.|
This function toggles the camera mode between a fixed view and the default player chase view. The camera's position and rotation in fixed mode can be set with the setCameraPosition and setCameraLookAt functions respectively.
bool toggleCameraFixedMode ( bool fixed )
- fixed: A boolean indicating the camera mode; true for fixed view, false for chase view.
Returns a bool with a value of true if the function was successful, false otherwise.
Example 1: This example sets the player's camera above Blueberry Acres at a downward angle:
toggleCameraFixedMode(true) setCameraPosition(-16.268127441406, -46.674671173096, 29.565118789673) setCameraLookAt(-68.21085357666, 34.687622070313, 11.11138343811)
Example 2: This example points the player's camera at the killer whenever the player dies:
local thePlayer = getLocalPlayer() -- get the player running this client-side script -- add an event handler to call the onDeath function whenever the player dies function onDeath(theAttacker, weapon, bodypart) if (theAttacker and theAttacker ~= thePlayer) then -- make sure there is a killer -- store the position of the victim and killer local playerX, playerY, playerZ = getElementPosition(thePlayer) local attackerX, attackerY, attackerZ = getElementPosition(theAttacker) -- set the player's camera to fixed view toggleCameraFixedMode(true) -- set the camera's position at the player and in the killer's direction setCameraPosition(playerX, playerY, playerZ) setCameraLookAt(attackerX, attackerY, attackerZ) -- set the camera back to normal after 3 seconds setTimer(toggleCameraFixedMode, 3000, 1, false) end end addEventHandler("onClientPlayerWasted", thePlayer, onDeath)
