I have a problem with implementing mouse-look camera movement, like in FPS games. For me common solution is:
- Calculate delta movement from the window's center using event's
- Rotate camera
- Return cursor back to window's center using
The problem is when
SetCursorPos is called, another
WM_MOUSEMOVE event is being fired. So camera rotates back.
What is the common way to create such type of camera on Windows platform (using WinAPI)?
I know that in
WM_MOSEMOVE I can check is
mouse.x == windowCenter.x and if it is - do nothing, but it's a hack from my point of view. Is there any "non-hacky" way to achieve the goal?
