    To answer the spin direction:
    You want two real attributes (Touch_Start) and (Touch_Stop). Then make an actor on the background (size of whole screen) and when touch--> is down :: change attribute Touch_Start) to mouse.postion.X.

    Then touch--> is released :: change attribute Touch_Stop) to mouse.postion.X.

    Then (on release) if start is greater than stop, rotate at (whatever speed you want) counterclockwise. If start is less than stop, rotate (again whatever speed you want) clockwise.

    In terms of a harder press--> faster spin and vice a versa, I don't believe GS can detect the pressure of a touch.

    Perhaps link to a video. I'm afraid I really didn't follow your description very well.

    @Icebox thnx my brother but i need know how i make it with mouse x ! becuze i need learn it .or how i make it without button just roll the spinner

    The centre of a triangle is 2/3rds of the way along each of the three medians, so if you have an equilateral triangle like a fidget spinner, and it is sat like an arrow pointered upwards (▴) the centrepoint will be 1/3 of the way up the image/actor, whereas leaving the centrepoint 1/2 of the way up (GameSalad's default) will give you that weird disjointed rotation !

    @Socks thnx for this advice you helped me 70%

  • IceboxIcebox Member Posts: 1,483

    Thanks for the info socks !

    @iraqiraq This is simple , you only need the fidget actor and this rule

    {if mouse button is down

    (create another rule inside)

    [if game.mouseposition.x > game.screen.size.width/2 ( if mouse is at the right side)
    rotate clockwise
    otherwise
    rotate counter-clockwise]

    otherwise
    }

    thats it

    thnx @Icebox but this if clicked /if your finger out side the spinner he stop moving .im not need stop . i need him stop slow to 0 :)

  • SocksSocks London, UK.Member Posts: 12,822

    "i need him stop slow to 0"

    Increase angular drag to slow down a rotating actor.

    This spinner demo might be useful:

  • tmagamestmagames Member, PRO Posts: 4

    RThurman Your spinner example is just what I have been looking for to create a steering wheel for a driving game. If you could help further I would be grateful: How do you constrain the movement so it rotates only left or right say 45 degrees each way from centre? Many thanks

  • tatiangtatiang Member, Sous Chef, PRO, Senior Sous-Chef Posts: 11,927

    @tmagames It's unlikely @RThurman will see this unless you notify him which is what I've done by including the '@' symbol before his forum username.

    @tmagames You might want to look at this example of knob rotation:
    https://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/comment/413634/#Comment_413634

    You just change the min and max values to get the limits you want. For your example you would use:
    max(45,min(135, self.Rotation + self.changeInAngles ))
