Could you also just flip the starting and ending gate coordinates in the script generating website if you end up backwards?

I think that's wht I've done in the past.

(Meaning, you've put the end of the gate in as the start, and vise versa...)

There's a PI button on the Windows calculator if you switch it to scientific mode (view > scientific). First column, second to last row.

is there a way to rotate say 45 degrees?

Add or subtract (depending on which way you want them to rotate) by pi/4.

How would I rotate my gates 90 degrees?
If you enjoy what I make, donate to the cause 8) It's very much appreciated!!

You should be able to open the "timing_gates" file and change the last section of numbers (they should all match).
And just add 90 to it.

Not 90, it's in radians, So pi/2.

pie/2 = 1.570796326794896619231216916398

So just slap that in.

Code: Select all

startinggate:
[leave this stuff] "your number+above"


Something like that, I'm not much of a track maker xD
