How would i go about making an isometric / forward down style camera while still being able to face the mouse?


I’m trying to make a camera where its isometric, sort of like enter the gungeon, or a typical rpg game.
I’ve managed to achieve the camera, but having the player face their mouse often has a lot of issues and i am not sure how to fox them or change how they work.

Ive tried quite a lot of different camera styles and 2 ways of having the character face the mouse and the same issue arises.

^ heres an example of what i mean

local Player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local Character = Player.Character
local Root = Character:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")

local Mouse = Player:GetMouse()
local RunService = game:GetService("RunService")

	local RootPos, MousePos = Root.Position, Mouse.Hit.Position
	Root.CFrame =,, RootPos.Y, MousePos.Z))

^ script which controls humanoid facing mouse pos

local zoom = 166
local FieldOfView = 7

local Player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local Mouse = Player:GetMouse()
local Character = Player.Character or Player.CharacterAdded:Wait()
local Camera = game.Workspace.CurrentCamera
Camera.CameraType = Enum.CameraType.Custom

local RunService = game:GetService("RunService")
	Camera.FieldOfView = FieldOfView
	if Character then
		if Character:FindFirstChild("HumanoidRootPart") then
			game:GetService("SoundService"):SetListener(Enum.ListenerType.ObjectCFrame, Character.HumanoidRootPart)
			Camera.CFrame = + zoom, Character.HumanoidRootPart.Position.Y + zoom, Character.HumanoidRootPart.Position.Z + zoom), Character.HumanoidRootPart.Position)

script which controls camera ^

thank you!


I don’t really know what’s the right way of doing this, but you could make the character look at the direction of the mouse.

Try this:

local Player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local Character = Player.CharacterAdded:Wait()
local HRP = Character:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")
local Mouse = Player:GetMouse()
local RS = game:GetService("RunService")

	local RootPos = HRP.Position
	local MousePos = Mouse.Hit.Position
	HRP.CFrame =,, RootPos.Y, MousePos.Z))

It has the HumanoidRootPart look at the hit position of the mouse :]
