    I have a horror game that is 3d but uses flat 2d sprites. I am trying to add a "3d" animation to the sprite by having the monster's sprite's legs move back and forth with a timer.

    Monster's Create:

    xBack = x;
    yBack = y;
    jointX = x;
    jointY = y;
    stepTimer = 40;​

    Monster's Step:

    angle=point_direction(x, y, obj_player.x, obj_player.y)

    if(stepTimer <= 0)
    xBack = obj_collector.x;
    yBack = obj_collector.y;
    stepTimer = 180;

    jointX = obj_collector.x;
    jointY = obj_collector.y;​

    Monster's Draw:

    ///Draw Body
    d3d_transform_add_rotation_z(point_direction(x, y, obj_player.x, obj_player.y)+90);
    d3d_transform_add_translation(x, y, 68)
    draw_sprite_ext(spr_collector, image_index, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, c_white, 1);

    //Draw Leg
    var leg = sprite_get_texture(spr_collectorRightLeg,0);
    This code works for leaving the foot behind, then when the timer hits 0, bring the foot back into a normal place (it isnt polished obviously). However, when the foot gets left behind, the sprite does not face the player like it does when it is re-placed normally. How can I fix this?
