    Greetings. Im using RPG maker vx ace. What I desire is two things from this thread.

    One is to zoom the camera of the screen. To explain, I don't mean changing resolution, but the camera that focuses on the player, I want to zoom it more on that player so that there is not much to see on the map and more to see of the player.

    The second is to position this zoomed in camera, moving it so that the camera is shifted behind the players (sprite) back. Basically the camera will allow the player to only see foward of the map and not the back of them.

    Obviously when the player faces a different direction the camera would have to shift so that it stays behind the players back and the player only see's ahead.
    I hope this makes sense. Any help?

    Ummm. Okey let me put it this way.

    I don't want it in 3d, its still the same top view like RPG maker provides (though I like this 3d thing, imma check it out).

    Anyway, the game is still top down view, where you see your player. Imma send a drawn pic to demonstrate what I want.

    By the way, I managed to figure out the zoom in.

    Hello there!

    I think you can create a new map with different position and give an event command "Transfer Player" to the new map

    I uploaded two images. One is a image of a player in the center of a map. Classic RPG maker view.

    The other image where there is a red border represents the view that I want and stays like that if the player continues walking down the same direction.

    Umm you can minimize your size map so when player is moving, the camera doesn't move
