Had a mess around today with the motion linear on the camera and think it might be better but see what ya think.

Project attached.

    I've not made a platformer and played with the controls myself but it does seem quite smooth. Will bare this way in mind should I find myself working on a platformer

    Very nice - I agree. I think it looks more professional, too.

    The difference is subtle but i think it is better, i will have another play soon to see if i can give the hero more field of view when going left and right.

    Good stuff Darren, I was thinking about this very issue only last week, how the camera motion kicks in when the actor controlling the camera reaches the camera boundary, I was thinking it would be great to have dampening of some kind, your idea seems to go some way towards a solution. Cheers for sharing this !

    Will work on it again and tweak it if I ever make a game that would utilise it.
