I got a lot of comments about my smooth camera transitions in a recent WIP that I posted. I thought I'd just go ahead and share how I did it with a code sample cart. I'm posting the important function below, but feel free to look at the cart's code to see how it's implemented. I'm not a wizard, and I know it could probably be simplified somehow, so feel free to use and improve as you see fit. If you do improve it, let me know here so I can update the code for others to see!
function smooth_cam(spd) cam_x+=(flr(p.x/128)*128-cam_x)*spd cam_y+=(flr(p.y/128)*128-cam_y)*spd if (abs(cam_x-flr(p.x/128)*128)<0.5) cam_x=flr(p.x/128)*128 if (abs(cam_y-flr(p.y/128)*128)<0.5) cam_y=flr(p.y/128)*128 camera(cam_x,cam_y) end
UPDATE: I fixed a minor bug. (I had smooth_cam(speed) running after map(0,0), when it should be running before. I also added the Z/X buttons to allow you to change the speed of the transition for this demo so you can see what different speeds look like.
