How do I make rotating particles?

Hello,

I would like to know if there is a way to make particles rotating.
I don't mean the particle object/system rotating just the particles it spawns.

Thank you

The Particle object (plugin) doesn't allow for it's individual particles to have rotation nor collisions. This is by design in order to have less calculations and better performance.

If you want better control over your "particles" you can use a sprite and make it behave as a particle. Of coarse, this will tax your game and add to the calculations. If you don't overdo it it will not be a problem I think... See the attached example.

Hmm I can see what you mean, create a particle system manually.
Yeah I understand how this could affect performance.

Thank you both very much for your replies.
