Are we talking with 360 or MMF's 32 angle? Not sure of the answer, but this might help is someone who could help, knew.

Why direction calculator?
While pressing right and not facing right: direction = direction - 1
While pressing left and not facing left: direction = direction + 1
Is a better solution

If you mean, you don't want to use the (ugly) 32 dir from active objects, then just use an active picture.

Yeah this is easy enough. On pressing a direction, set an alterable value of that object to the numerical value equivalent to that direction (right=0, up=8, left=16, down=24). Then compare the current direction to this value and rotate towards it in the direction that would take it there closest, either with a couple of events or the Direction Calculator extension.

Here's a method that uses the direction calculator. My version did it without any extensions, but I can't be arsed remembering how exactly:

Keyboard: pressed right
---Active: set alterable value A to 0

Keyboard: pressed up
---Active: set alterable value A to 8

Keyboard: pressed left
---Active: set alterable value A to 16

Keyboard: pressed down
---Active: set alterable value A to 24

[Do the same thing for diagonals if you like]

Direction("Active") <> Alterable Value A("Active")
---Direction Calculator: rotate Active towards direction Alterable Value A("Active")

There, easy. Pretty sure that would work. For the actual movement of Active, either use a custom movement or always set Active to the position of an invisible object with 8-directional movement (or set it to the position of an invisible one with custom movement, which would be ideal for collision detection).

I just tested it then with exactly those events, and it does work. It even works if you replace

Direction("Active") <> Alterable Value A("Active")

with

NEGATE[(Active) is facing a direction Alterable Value A("Active")]

Surely at least one of those two must work in TGF.

Nope it doesn't.

Direction("Active") <> Alterable Value A("Active")

^^You can't make it do the above event....
