@StreakThundrstrm - Glad you're liking it! To fix the issue with unwanted layers zooming, go to the layer properties pane, and there you'll see two properties for your HUD layer -- Zoom X Rate and Zoom Y Rate. Setting both of these to zero will keep the layers from zooming with everything else.

And just in case you want to keep a layer from rotating, I'm pretty sure I have an action that allows you to exclude a layer from rotation.

I hope this helps!

Hey! I would love to have a dual camera for realtime multiplayer on same computer :) Im making a game and I've tried to make it work, but it seems impossible with my kind of visual structure of the game.

Sorry, the plugin doesn't support displaying multiple cameras at the same time. This is something I tried implementing, but I never got anything working because it involved utilizing some undocumented/confusing functions from the SDK.

I tried setting the magicam plugin to 'global' so I wouldn't have to add a new instance for every layout, but this appears to make the resulting game crash.

Is it possible to do this without killing the game, or should I just work around it?

Yeah, and if the object the camera follows is destroyed, the next time it's created it the camera doesn't follow it anymore. And even if i add the object to the camera following objects later, it still won't follow it.
Here's what I mean:

Nice plugin btw.

Hey linkman2004

Just started using magiCam and found it to be rather nice. However was hoping you could squeeze in time to look at that changing layout global issue... :)

Even a destroy camera function would probably do it - I have found creating a new camera at the start of each layout works(I set it to layoutName) BUT if you cross back into the previous layout the camera stops working.

Cheers,
Steven

Thanks for the comments, guys - sorry I didn't reply to any of them sooner.

Unfortunately, I don't have any plans to fix remaining bugs in this plugin - my familiarity with the code has dwindled over time, reducing my ability to identify problems. This, combined with my full-time work and school schedules - which leave me little time for my current projects - means I'll be dropping support indefinitely.

However, I would like to say that I've just finished tinkering around with the C2 plugin SDK a little bit and I'm starting to get a grasp of what's going on in that regard. With any luck, you'll see something on that front in a few weeks time, although I make no promises.

In the event that I do release a C2 version of this plugin, updates will likely be sporadic and I might start accepting donations as a way to offset the time invested. Life is a demanding mistress and I am submissive to its will.

Be sure to keep an eye out for any updates - I'll let you guys know as soon as I have more to report.

Once again, thanks for all of the downloads and comments for this plugin - I see it as my crowning achievement in this community and the support is much appreciated.
