    Man It's great your giving free stuff to the community but I feel that you need to change your username. There is an official GS staff member with the correctly spelled version of your username. No need to cause any confusion. If you know what I mean.

    Cheers

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    I agree with the user name, this is something a lot of us already know about but i do welcome tutorials so keep them coming.

    +1 for the PC tutorial there's not too many of them around (i think) and there's a lot of PC users so credit for that and hope you make more.

    My critique on that video though is to not to unlock instances. That's one of my pet peeves.
    All the camera control actors behave the same way. If its own ID is the same as a game ID, run the Control Camera behavior. Instead of unlocking the actor, make the prototype have that behavior all built and replace that hard coded ID with an actor attribute instead. Change that actor attribute on each of the instances to the appropriate ID.
    That will cut down your coding a lot, and if you have to modify the camera control actor later for something else, you don't have to do that for every instance.

    Otherwise, the general idea of using the Control Camera to have multiple views on the same scene is sound.
