Here at Roblox we’re constantly looking for ways to improve the player experience across all platforms and devices.
As part of this effort, we’ve implemented a brand new camera mode to help with camera control on laptops and desktops. Meet Camera Toggle.
- Tap RMB to switch into toggle mode.
- Tap RMB again to switch out of toggle mode.
Toggle mode puts the cursor above your head and locks it. This works in first and third person.
Advantage: You don’t have to be holding down a mouse button to move the camera.
This is especially useful when you’re on an older trackpad without gesture support – you can move the camera with a swipe of one finger.
Camera Toggle is a selectable option in the in-game menu.
Right now, we’re asking you to try it out and give us your feedback. This is a major change to how controls work on Roblox, so we want to make sure this is compatible with a wide variety of gameplay styles and use cases. In that pursuit, the more criticism the better.
You can test it out by going into a game with unforked camera scripts and selecting “CameraToggle” under Camera Mode:
Let us know what you think.
