Ok I am just looking to do an older rpg type camera, siple move the cam up,down,left,or right, from a top down perspective. This code works but sor some reason I cant figure out why when you change camera it doesnt stop and move right away. Ex. if i press Left the cam moves, but when i press right it keeps moving in left direction for so long before it changes. http://xenge.emulation64.net/program.zip if you wanna see what i mean. its only 54b
struct CAMERA
{
	float new_X, new_Y, old_X, old_Y;
};

void CameraMove(int direction)
{
	glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
	switch(direction)
	{
	case CAM_UP:
		{
			cam.old_Y =  cam.new_Y;
			cam.new_Y -= .5;
		}
		break;
	case CAM_DOWN:
		{
			cam.old_Y =  cam.new_Y;
			cam.new_Y += .5;
		}
		break;
	case CAM_LEFT:
		{
			cam.old_X =  cam.new_X;
			cam.new_X += .5;
		}
		break;
	case CAM_RIGHT:
		{
			cam.old_X =  cam.new_X;
			cam.new_X -= .5;
		}
		break;
	}
	glTranslatef((float)cam.new_X, (float)cam.new_Y, (float)0);
}
	case WM_KEYDOWN:
		{
			if(wParam == VK_UP)
			{
				CameraMove(CAM_UP);
				return 0;
			}
			if(wParam == VK_DOWN)
			{
				CameraMove(CAM_DOWN);
				return 0;
			}
			if(wParam == VK_LEFT)
			{
				CameraMove(CAM_LEFT);
				return 0;
			}
			if(wParam == VK_RIGHT)
			{
				CameraMove(CAM_RIGHT);
				return 0;
			}
		}
		break;
