Nice plugin, I've been using it for a few months! I have a question though. Is there an easier way to find out which screen the player is on? like setting a text to find the coordinates?

Hello and thanks for the purchase! Currently, there isn't. Creating tags for specific coordinates could be an improvement for a future update

construct 3 have free template with this camera lol

This is not a template but a plugin. You can always do event-based approaches but using plugins frees your event sheet

It also provides some trigger conditions that would be more difficult to emulate with an event-based approach
