Animation/picture rotation

Recommended Posts


I occured some strange problem while exploring how to make animation. I made custom picture. Let's say it is a campfire fire (attached file). When i try to use it, it doesn't rotate like dart from blow dart. Dart is always directed to target but my animation picture is always forwarding right since i painted it and posted in sprite like so. BUT blowdart dart is forwarding same direction in sprite like my picture and it is rotating! Dart fly uses


And my animation is actually "action-animation" which uses next code

--making function of action "throw" projectile
myaction.fn = function(act)	  
	act.doer:DoTaskInTime(7*GLOBAL.FRAMES, function()        
		local projectile = GLOBAL.SpawnPrefab("campFire_projectile")           
		projectile.components.projectile:Throw(act.doer, act.target)    
	return true

Am i doing it wrong way? Is it possible to rotate it directing target?

bump. Really need help with this. Projectile:RotateToTarget seems not working on my picture. It might be depended on pivot or something else

If it's similar to the other animations in the game you may need different faces for the animation, one for left, one for right, one for up, and one for down. Otherwise it'll always face in the same direction when you fire it and just slide over to the target. You might want to take a look at the Ewecus prefab and see how it's projectile works.
