How do I force first-person mode? [closed]

Asked by 3 years ago

I've seen some games on ROBLOX force first-person camera so you can't zoom out. How can I do this in my game?

ROBLOX has a neat property in the Player object called CameraMode. This property holds an Enum value, which can be either Classic (which is the typical default setting) or LockFirstPerson.

You can use LockFirstPerson to force this sort of lock.

Here's an example code that would go in a regular Script...

game.Players.PlayerAdded:connect(function(player)
    player.CameraMode = "LockFirstPerson"
end)

Please don’t use a string where enum items are expected. Use Enum.CameraMode.LockFirstPerson instead of "LockFirstPerson". MarkOtaris 205 — 3y

first of all you can't just lockfirstperson and put report or while loop it'll only work once to correct this error you would have to do something like this

player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
while true do
wait(0)--change this to whatever you want
player.CameraMode = Enum.CameraMode.Classic
Player.CamerMode =  Enum.CameraMode.LockFirstPerson
end

There is a lot simpler way of just making them first person as soon as they spawn, if you want this then:

repeat wait() until game.Players.LocalPlayer
local p = game.Players.LocalPlayer
p.CameraMode = "LockFirstPerson"

Hope this helps.

Well, I won't give you the direct code, as I think that if you learn it on your own it will stick better in your brain than if I just give you it. I would suggest going to... 1) http://wiki.roblox.com/index.php?title=CameraMode_(Property) 2)http://wiki.roblox.com/index.php?title=CameraMode_(Enum)

But there are a couple other ways, but remember, some ways require local scripts and some don't. Well I hope I helped! ~Georgeba, Roblox

Make a GUI that says something like this: "Click here to play" and when its clicked, make it run this

script.Parent.MouseButton1Down:connect(function()
local fps = game.Lighting.fpsScript:clone()
fps.Parent=game.Players.LocalPlayer -- if localScript
--elseif not local script then
--fps.Parent=script.Parent until it reaches your player
fps.Disabled = false
-- how I did mine: http://www.roblox.com/Weld-Testing-place?id=153151316 
-- it adds a sword script where you can swing your sword without a hopperbin or tool and its broken ATM
end)

you can lock first person mode by inserting a script which is

while true do
    wait()
    local c = workspace:GetChildren()
    for i=1, #c do
        if c[i].className == "Camera" and (c[i].CoordinateFrame.p - c[i].Focus.p).magnitude > 40 then
            c[i].CoordinateFrame = c[i].CoordinateFrame * CFrame.new((CFrame.new(c[i].CoordinateFrame.p, c[i].Focus.p)).lookVector * (c[i].CoordinateFrame.p - c[i].Focus.p).magnitude)
        end
    end
end

or you can do a command to lock and unlock first person view by inserting a script and typing

function onPlayerSpawned(player, character)
    player.CameraMode = "LockFirstPerson"
end

function onPlayerChatted(player, message, recipient)
    if player.userId == game.CreatorId and game.CreatorType == Enum.CreatorType.User then
        if message == "/thirdperson" then
            player.CameraMode = "Classic"
        elseif message == "/firstperson" then
            player.CameraMode = "LockFirstPerson"
        end
    end
end

function onPlayerEntered(player)
    player.CharacterAdded:connect(function (char) onPlayerSpawned(player, char) end)
    player.Chatted:connect(function (msg, rec) onPlayerChatted(player, msg, rec) end)

    player.CameraMode = "LockFirstPerson"
end

game.Players.PlayerAdded:connect(onPlayerEntered)

hope it helps :)
