Camera Pan Control System
Version: 3

 
Introduction
The Camera Pan System allows you, the player, or creator to scroll through your map with the press of a button and arrow keys.
 
Features
  • Allows the player to scroll through the map no problem.
  • (NEW!) The camera no longer returns to you by teleport. Instead, it returns to you by camera pan.
  • (NEW!) Don't like holding down the Q button? Now you have the option to either hold the Q button to activate the camera pan (hold) or tap the Q button to activate and tap again to deactivate it (toggle).
  • (NEW!) This is a feature that many members have requested time and time again and it's something I've never got around doing. You, now have the ability to limit how far you want the camera to pan! How's that?
Screenshots

Moving the camera around.
 

Camera returning to me. (Although you may not see that happening since the picture's not in motion of course, that's what is happening.)
 
Demo
It's a bit complex so I'll have it up for download. Read the bulletin for more details on how to use this system in the demo.
 Left click! Demo here.

I is my hero!
This awesome! I was trying to make something like this for my game, and now here it is. Perfect timing. I noticed one glitch though. In the bottom left corner the camera doesn't come back down once you move it up.
