Rotating Sprites
« on: October 02, 2014, 01:44:23 pm »
Hello,

I needed help in rotating sprites.I am trying to use SetRotationForPlayer( player, rotation ) but i get no errors and nothing happens.

I try to rotate it like this :

Code: [Select]
s <-CreateSprite( "spritename.png", 500, 600, 0, 0, 0,255 );
s.ShowForPlayer( FindPlayer( player ) );
s.SetRotationForPlayer(player, 150);

That function does rotate the sprite but doesn't rotate the sprite I want but instead makes a new sprite and rotates that!

Multiple Sprites was a bug of my script which i fixed later but now there is a new problem.The needle's position keeps changing on the screen while moving.If my car stays still it doesn't move but If my car is not still it dances on the screen.

Maybe because you rotate the sprite when position is changed ?! (or in a speedometer script?)

If you mean the position of the player is changed then you're right.The player position is contantly changing while  it is driving.

Post some more code. A sprite doesn't dance on your screen unless you tell it to.

Here you go :

Code: [Select]

function onScriptLoad()
{
// Other Functions
NewTimer( "Speedometer", 1500, 0 );
s <-CreateSprite( "needle.png", 500, 500, 0, 0, 0,255 );
// other functions
}

function Speedometer()
{
for ( local i = 0; i < GetMaxPlayers(); i++ )
{
                local p = FindPlayer( i );
                if ( p )
                {
                        if ( p.IsSpawned )
                        {
                                local vehicle = p.Vehicle;
                                if ( vehicle )
                                {
                          local Speed = sqrt(vehicle.Speed.x*vehicle.Speed.x + vehicle.Speed.y * vehicle.Speed.y + vehicle.Speed.z * vehicle.Speed.z) * 50 * 3.6;
                          local output = round(Speed, 0);
  s.RotateForPlayer( p, output );
                                }
                        }
                }
         }
}

function onPlayerEnterVehicle( player, veh, isPassenger )
{
s.ShowForPlayer( player );
}
function onPlayerExitVehicle( player, veh )
{
s.HideFromPlayer( player );
}

This is all of the code I have used.

The sprites are fine, the problem is your math. Objects are rotated about an axis of 360 degrees. If a player is going 1km/h, your sprite rotates 180 degrees. If a player is going 2km/h, your sprite rotates 360 degrees. It will only rotate to 0 or 180 degrees or some derivative of it, and especially because you round to the nearest whole number.

Can you explain more? I didn't quite understand what you meant.

Secondly rotation problems is a different case why does the sprite move in random positions?

I don't know how to explain this any further without having to teach trigonometry.

I'm going to say because you didn't remove whitespace/transparency around the speedometer sprite.

Is whitespace created when we enter in the vehicle by pressing the enter button? I read that  :

Quote
Vertical white space is a bit more varied as to how it is encoded,but the most obvious in typing is the ↵ Enter result which creates a 'newline' code sequence in applications programs

Where is the whitespace created and how do I remove it?
Sorry for being a noob here  ;)

Whitespace is created when you have a PNG with transparency around the image.
