Separating angle of sprite and imagepoint.

  • I'm manually setting the frame of my sprite according to the direction of movement, but in order for my bullets to spawn according to the frame, I have to adjust the angle of the imagepoint. The only problem is: I can't seem to do this without changing the angle of the frame!

    So: Any way to separate the angle of the sprite and the angle of the imagepoint?

  • Nope.

    You can, however, instead of an imagepoint, store a position using instance variables.

    if you give the sprite two extra instance variables and name them, for example: "pointX" and "pointY"

    +everytick

         -> set sprite.pointX to sprite.X + cos(B)*C

         -> set sprite.pointY to sprite.Y + sin(B)*C

    Where B is the desired angle of the point from the origin, and C is the desired distance of the point from the origin.
