Hello, here's a game that im working on.
http://yoruno.itch.io/vshootertest3?secret=Ly7rhLzMcMUaLGVZ7wK15poZs
It's very much a normal vertical shooter at the moment. What i'm stuck on is that.. is it possible to rotate the window/camera?
The idea is that when i press.. say D, I want the window (plus the player ship) to rotate 90' to the right. On screen it'd look like you're still flying straight up north but the purple blocks will be coming from left.
I can rotate the layers and layouts and it does give similar effect to what i want to achieve, just that if i can rotate the camera itself it would probably make things a bit more simpler.
I also tried simply changing where enemies spawn facing what angle, it works but the current spawning mechanics is just a place holder so its no good as a solution. =[

So yeah. Thanks in advance!

Yeah I've tried changing layer angles. They work, just that once i start adding other stuffs it gives me more layers to set angles on manually so i was thinking if i can change window angle instead that'd mean less things getting rotated lol.

Did anyone figure this one out yet? Do I just need to rotate every layer manually?

@jook00, instead of using Set layer angle, use the Set layout angle action. This will rotate the entire layout.
