Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

PlayerStart Orientation changes on package and ship

I am using a orthographic camera

its rotation is 0,0,0 its childed to a springArm which is rotated -90 to point at my sprite


my PlayerStart is rotated to 0,0,0

the general idea of the level http://i.imgur.com/M9YNMHy.png

When I hit play, it works fine http://i.imgur.com/cheRFC1.png

when I hit launch, it works fine http://i.imgur.com/3u8T15b.png

when I Package project (shipping w/ windows 32 bit, or development with win 64), the camera is pointing in the wrong orientation, it appears to be pointing along the x axis, instead of the y axis http://i.imgur.com/faqwYlw.png

It appears to have to do with player start maybe?(packaging breaks the orientation)(playerstart for some reason rotates?) (because my sprite is also rotated)
I am not sure

Is there an additional setting that could impact the default orientation of it, that would differ from play & Launch vs package project
