1. is it possible to randomly pick the sprite in a particle effect?

example: i want a "snowing" particle effect that everytime it creates a new sprite randomly picks 1 out of X snowflake sprites.

2. how do i make the sprites in a particle to start rotating when they are created?

thanks!

1. You can't currently do this, but you could try overlaying say 3 different particle objects with different textures, each going at a third the rate.

2. You can't do this with the Particles object - if you need more advanced control you could try simply spawning Sprites with the Bullet movement and control them with events.
