Right, this is driving me insane and i know it has been asked to death, and ive read the lot.


But i still dont get it ... i have a overhead shooter with 4 directions of movement..(thunderforce 2 inspired)
how do i fire in the direction im facing ? surely it cant be as complicated as some examples..arrgh just when you think your working stuff out :P

All you have to do is set the angle of your bullets to the same angle of your spaceship and in the image editor ensure both are facing the same way.
