Hey guys, I'm having this issue with my sprite(turret) turning upside down when shooting. Here is a video showing what's happening:

Seems to me you should use a seperate sprite pinned to the dino and have it have the turret behaviour..
You want the turret to rotate to be able to aim at the player, but the dino not to..

Right now it's like you have a cannon on top of a tower and instead of rotating the cannon you rotate the tower.. :)
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

If i pinned a 'turret box' to the dino surely. the 'spit' would just be fired out from anywhere on the dino and it wouldn't look like it's coming out of it's mouth? Unless even though it's a turret box, I can still use image points on the dino for the bullet fire?

You can position the "turret box" to the image point at the dino's mouth before pinning, that way it will still "spit" from the correct place
