Player and bullets not facing the right way

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hi all,

First post here, excited to learn scirra! I just finished the first tutorial,and I noticed something weird. My player sprite doesn't point in the direction my mouse is pointed, and neither does the bullet sprite, resulting in this awkward scene:

Note that I've used my own images for the tutorial, although I don't know that this should really affect the game in this way.

Here's the link to the .capx file:

Hope you all can help out!

It's all to do with the way you've positioned the images.

Simply open up your space-ship and bullet, and rotate it 90 degrees to the right. The Construct animation editor has a button for it.

Problem solved.

Edit: I'd also recommend that you try other control schemes--the 8-directional movement feels strange for a spaceship. Perhaps try the car?brockatkinson2012-05-10 11:11:15

Thanks Brock! Pfft, I was actually doing that already, but I was doing it in the Layout screen and not in the edit image screen, stupid me.

re: control schemes I'm definitely going to toy with that. This was my very first time with construct so I was trying to stick to the tutorial for the most part.
