Rotating hotspot with unwanted normal hotspot

JGoode

Hello,

I have a 2D hotspot that I am using to rotate my object however there is a black base hotspot that stays in place when the rotating hotspot is moved. Is there any way to remove this? I've looked at the gdl ref guide and changed the flags but it doesn't seem to work. Here it is:
 	! Center 
 	! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 	hotspot2 0, 0, hsID, ang, 6     : hsID = hsID + 1 
 	! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 	! Base 
 	! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 	hotspot2 1.1, 0, hsID, ang, 4     : hsID = hsID + 1 
 	! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 	! Moving 
 	! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 	hotspot2 1.1 * COS(ang), 1.1 * SIN(ang), hsID, ang, 5    : hsID = hsID + 1 
Thanks!

Adding the attribute 128 to your base hotspot does not work?

 hotspot2 1.1, 0, hsID, ang, 4 + 128     : hsID = hsID + 1

No, the black hotspot remained in place.

It works fine for me just as Ling has shown.
