Setting Bullet Direction For Text

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Jan 12, 2013 8:14 am

I'm working on a project that requires me to take a long sentence and have it scroll across the screen, building a scrolling marquee. Basically, I want to be able to do this:

I want to take my long sentence and have it scroll towards the left of the screen. I have a Text Object with which I used the Bullet behavior to give it movement and the Wrap behavior to allow it to repeat the sentence once the sentence has scrolled all the way through. My problem is, Bullet only shoots the sentence going to the right. I have been trying for a while now to figure out a way to shoot the text to the left. I've tried setting the bullet angle to 180 degrees, but that completely rotates the text 180 as well, making the sentence unreadable. I've been sitting here for a good hour or so racking my brain, but I can't find a solution. Help, pretty please?

Select the text, look under object properties on the left of the screen, and change "Set angle" to No.
