compass code problem

by sundust » Tue Sep 03, 2013 7:17 pm

Hi friends I have a problem with the compass code again....
here it is: http://www.helivizyon.com/build/virtualtour.html
Iahve this code on virtualtour.xml file
I havent touched the other xml files.
set heading value is 15 but compass shows different directions on every panorama... cant figure it why and how?

code:
<!--************** COMPASS ***************************************************************-->
<events onxmlcomplete="startup();"
onviewchange="rotatecompasses();"
/>

<!-- show info, set heading, create hotpots -->
<action name="startup">
<!-- SET HEADING -->
set(heading, 15);
</action>

<!-- change the rotation of the compass pointer / compass plate image -->
<action name="rotatecompasses">
sub(plugin[compass_pointer].rotate, heading, view.hlookat);
sub(plugin[compass2_plate].rotate, heading, view.hlookat);
</action>

<!-- compass with rotating pointer -->
<plugin name="compass" url="compassimages/compass.png" keep="true" zorder="1" children="false"
align="lefttop" x="10" y="10"
scale="0.5" scalechildren="true"
destscale="1.0"
onclick="switch(destscale,1.0,0.5);tween(scale,get(destscale));"
heading="0"
/>

<!-- compass pointer, the rotation will be changed in the "onviewchange" action -->
<plugin name="compass_pointer" url="compassimages/compass_pointer.png" keep="true" handcursor="false"
parent="compass" zorder="1"
align="center"
/>

<!-- compass glass cap (flash only, because there is no blendmode in html5) -->
<plugin name="glass" devices="flash" url="compassimages/glass.jpg" keep="true" enabled="false"
blendmode="screen" alpha="0.5"
parent="compass" zorder="2"
align="center"
/>

<!--************** COMPASS END ***************************************************************-->

Is this created with PTP 1.8 and extra plugin code editing?

PTP2.x makes it easy to set the compass orientation of evey pano separately in the 3D editing panel, just drag the compass 'points' ribbon - first screenshot.

Second screenshot shows compass settings.
