Re: 3rdPersonCam with Pivot - Why-o-why is this not working?
« Reply #3 on: February 05, 2018, 08:17:54 PM »
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):  :P



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

For instance in v6.0 it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
// store players current x,y,z and angles before any movement..
oldPlayerX#=GetObjectX(player[locPlr].mesh.body_mID)

As can be seen I'm using the fields of the player type in V6.1.;
Code: [Select]
// store players current x,y,z and angles before any movement..
player[locPlr].oldx = GetObjectX(player[locPlr].mesh.body_mID)

>>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.
Download(both versions): http://www.mediafire.com/file/zh5w053gjxikb5e/Univ3D_1%263P_Framework.rar

I have seen a similar problem in Blitz3d, and the cause of the problem was not obvious ??? :
basically, some commands (blitz3d functions) are taken into account only once per renderworld (per entity)
This is the case for entityparent().
So if you use entityparent several times for the same entity in the mainloop, only the last one will be taken into account !
Maybe your problem is caused by something similar to that ?


Or it may be caused by the collision system, if your camera has a collider, you may not be able to reposition it as you want because it has constraints in the "collisions world" (same thing with a physics engine)

Hmm, don't think so. I've tried not using EntityParent( FixObjectToObject in AGK) but it doesn't make any difference. Also it appears to work fine on the arm for instance, but I will investigate this in a more simplified test.

Could be. AGK collisions work by ray or sphere casting from original position to the location it moved to. If then something was hit, it can by choice perfom either a slide or do nothing action and return the location where was hit so one can adjust location.

In any case weird. It drives me crazy. The changes do not seem that drastic to me. Perhaps it's a variable scope thing..

I don't say to not use entityparent() / FixObjectToObject()
I say to be careful how you use it several times for the same entity
Because apparently only the last called command is considered per renderworld()...
So a similar issue may happen with AGK (but it may not be the cause of your problem in this case)

So my point was : your code is not necessarily what happens in the "game engine" because you don't know exactly how it is translated in the different systems (transform, collisions, physics), when an entity is updated, and what happens "behind the scene"

Could very well be indeed. Just doubting my own code a bit as I'm such a crappy coder. :-)
