DarkBASIC Professional Discussion / I need help with my code-glue object to limb problem

So I am gluing my plane object to a staff so the staff has some cool effects at the top of it.

After I glue the plane to the staff I can not rotate the plane to face the camera, even if I use the glue object 1,2,0,2. Adding the 2 at the end I still can not rotate the object plane to the camera so the effects show.

Is there a way to control the rotation of a plane after gluing it? I even rotate it before gluing it and still nothing. The effect shows half way and looks stupid.

Here is my glue code.

When you glue object "A" to object "B" object "A" becomes a limb. You need to use the rotate limb command to rotate it during the game loop. Use "fix object pivot" before you glue if you want it to glue a specific way.
Alternatives are rotating the parent object since the limb will share its rotation and position, the "2" flag you are using is for positioning it "before" gluing I believe

Thank you, I will try the limb rotate command

But can you make the limb point to the camera?

Ok, solved, Thanks for your help

I went here https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/143263

And he has a function that points limbs and it worked, and looks so good in game.
