In my update I removed the old screen references but I'd put the this.player ); outside the if( this.player ) { condition, so the camera was looking to update when there wasn't a player to update with.

Sorry for the premature post before!

Worked like a charm.

For what it's worth, Dominic's camera class should be included in the next version of Impact. It's by far the best approach for a generic trap-based camera.

Hi - I have followed the steps to use the camera and I also see the trap, but the problem is that when the player moves the background is not moving. I wanted to use the camera for phones specially as we cannot see the full screen. Any idea why the screen is not moving along with the player as it does in biolab?

Please ignore last mail - got it to work.

I used Dominic's camera code, everything works fine except the camera only moves down and to the right. If I try to move back, as in to the left where I came from the camera doesn't follow me. Same thing happens if I go upwards, the camera stays down.

Camera works great. However for it to work, I do need to specify a collision around the inner limit of the background, and I don't want my player to see the limit of the background.

I want him to collide directly with the end of the canvas viewport.

Any idea how can I achieve this?
