Mouse Lock (Shift Lock) for Mobile/Touch Devices

You can also check this out on my website, ozzypig.com →

Want to enable mouse lock (shift lock) for your mobile players? You’ve come to the right place!

This pack contains an override for the PlayerModuleLoader which does some fancy-pants fiddling to allow access to both the CameraModule and MouseLockController objects available in the default PlayerModule. No forking or modifying the PlayerModule is necessary!

You also get a topbar button interface that toggles the lock mode, only appearing for TouchEnabled devices. Check out the video above! ↑

Oh, there’s also an INSTRUCTIONS ModuleScript. Read it for the nitty-gritty.

This was made possible using @EgoMoose’s very clever CameraModule API Public Override, which circumvents the UserRemoveTheCameraApi FFlag. I simply put together the MouseLockController bit, a nice UI to go with it, and some instructions.

Some fine print to consider

  • You’ll probably want to tweak this to fit your game, in particular the included interface.
  • This will probably work for a while, though changes Roblox makes to the camera and mouse-lock parts of the PlayerModule may break or cause issues. Speaking of which…
  • I’m not liable if you break your game with this - no warranties included :–)
  • Perhaps in the future Roblox will have formal support for mouse/shift lock for touch - it’s up to you to know whether or not that has happened yet. Search #updates:announcements just in case.
  • I’m also probably not going to provide support or updates for this. But, you’ve got a wonderfully talented community at your fingertips that can help you solve your problems.
