Discussion SOLVED:Particle Orientation

Has anyone had issues with particle orientation/rotation? I just purchased the desktop version today and imported my project from gms1.x and the game is running with many compatability scripts. However I'm stuck trying to figure out why the particles are behaving differently, rotation and/or having altered orientations. Like rain for example rotating quickly or smoke particles rotation noticeable, etc. etc.

Edit: Okay, so for the sprites that are acting strange, I replaced the part_type_shape() function with the part_type_sprite() function and just imported the GMS2 effects as sprites and that solved the problem.

It would be very helpful for you to file a bug about the original problem with a *simple* sample project so that we can fix the underlying issue

Absolutely. That was actually my initial question when I posted here, if this was a known bug, but I was met with crickets, 50 views and no response before I found my own solution. I'll file a bug report today.

Update: Bug report filed.

Yeah. I have the same problem. Ported my project from GMS1 to GMS2. Everything worked fine, except for my particle systems. They are all broken and look/behave differently than before. That's quite disappointing.

The solution that worked for you means, that you had to save sprites for each and every particle you created. That's quite a lot of work.

Thanks for sending the bug-report. I hope this will be fixed in an upcoming update. I don''t want to redo all of my particle systems because of version-issues.
