Hi! When I press Left or Right, my sprite can't rotate continually, It only rotates to the specified angle. Can you help me?

What is "the specified angle"?
Your code looks like it should work, although rotating it 5 degrees 60 times per second is probably a bit fast.
If you're holding both the left and right arrow keys down the angle adjustments would cancel each other out, but apart from that I can't see why that shouldn't work.

The specified angle is 0 to 359. It stops at the specific angle. I forgot to use:

I think it wraps internally, but try ensuring that your angle stays in the [0..360] range. dbWrapValue(in_angle) will do this for you. Like it's name suggests an angle of 362 would wrap around to 2°, and -12° <=>348°.

If you didn't declare the variable your code wouldn't compile.
I'm starting to loose track of what the issue is here, or did you resolve it?
