I have question, if that is ok.
I read 'fps style'. fp.. stands for first person ....
Meaning the camera should (since its 2D) be on the players position and look in the direction that the player is looking ?
Well, I mentioned fps as first person shooter because that is an example use that I think everybody would get right a way... and yes, I may have been using construct 2 in a pseudo 3d capacity (think old 3d games)
But the last statement you made could be another use. I think alot of games prefer not to be spinning because it is nausea inducing in the top down look in the direction as the player... human eyes don't track rotation like that and so its not as useful... but could still have its uses.
