View Full Version : Change the rotation of polygons and text

10-24-2007, 02:00 AM
I tested the rotation of the various types of images like so:
function onCreated() {
this.img = IMAGE;
this.img.layer = 7;
function onTimeout() {
this.img.rotation = (this.img.rotation + pi/90) MOD (2*pi);
timeout = 0.05;
Note: MOD is modulo, but I get a bad request when it's in the post...

One can define an image and apply a rotation, and the image will rotate about its center. Cool. One can define a polygon and apply a rotation, and the polygon will fly about the screen in a circle with radius dependent upon the polygons size (I'm guessing). One can define a string of text to be displayed on the screen, and a rotation to be applied, and the letters will rotate individually getting narrow or wide and then flipping upside-down or disappearing all together.

Considering all of these things share a datatype, can we make it so that they all act that same when a rotation is applied? If they all rotated the same way an image does, that would be the most useful, I think.

You can also use the "spin" variable. The text rotation is not working fine on Windows yet, can check the polygon thing though.

I only want to rotate the text a certain degree, the script above was just a test.

And I'm using Linux, so the Windows issue does not apply here....

So try the "spin" variable anyways.

If he wants it to stay at one degree of rotation, spin isn't going to help.
