How can I make a sprite flip horizontally after it reaches a certain amount of degrees?

So, my player is holding a weapon that points towards the mouse, but it looks crooked when it goes 180 degrees, so is there any way I can flip it once it reaches (-)90 degrees?


extends Sprite

#var gunRotation = rotation_degrees(0, 0)

func _process(delta):
	var mpos = get_global_mouse_position()

you can flip the sprite vertically once it passes ±90 degrees angle(might need to set it to different angle because godot’s angles are kinda weird) using get_rot() or rotation if you are on godot 3 branch and flipping accordingly

Yes, the angle is found in the vector between the cursor and the gun tip (or aim origin).

var ang = (get_global_mouse_position() - gun_tip.get_global_pos()).angle()


Just make sure your angles match Godot, or do a conversion on your angles.

0 points down, 180 and -180 point up.

From 0 heading clockwise will cover 0 to -PI (-180), and the counter-clockwise direction covers 0 to +PI (+180).

I’ve tried my best, but I get this result: Screen capture - 43a0d74d75707281ecc27a60f2411688 - Gyazo

Here’s the code;

extends Sprite

func _process(delta):
	var mpos = get_global_mouse_position()
	var ang = (get_global_mouse_position() - self.get_global_position()).angle()
	if (ang >= 90):
	elif (ang >= -90):
