How to get a player's FacingDirection?

Post by Ol1vver » Thu Dec 27, 2018 5:43 pm

Hello,
How do I get the FacingDirection of a player?
I don't know how, even though it seemed simple.
Here's the script I have right now:
► Show Spoiler
I also would like some help to make the controls host-only, or make some other separated controls for a second player (or more).

ply.FacingDirection property will either return 1 or -1, 1 for right and -1 for left.

Change if(ply.IsRunning) to if(ply.IsRunning && ply.FacingDirection < 0) to check if they’re facing left, and > 0 to check if they’re facing right.

Thanks!

Nevermind, that didn't work. It keeps showing me an error that it doesn't exist..

Nevermind, I just misspelled it.
