I want to rotate the Monstercat song info text. What variables would I change in the texteditor?

It's not enough to just simply edit some variables.
Add the following variables to the [Variables] section of the Monstercat-Visualizer\Song Information\Left.ini or Right.ini skins:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
...
Angle=30
RotCenterX=10
RotCenterY=10
From these variables, Angle is (obviously) the rotation angle, while RotCenterX and RotCenterY are the coordinates of the center of rotation. Note that positive Angle rotates the title and the artist Anticlockwise, while negative Angle rotates then clockwise.
Add the following TransformationMatrix option to both meters, [MeterArtist] and [MeterTrack]: TransformationMatrix=(Cos(Rad(#Angle#)));(-1*Sin(Rad(#Angle#)));(Sin(Rad(#Angle#)));(Cos(Rad(#Angle#)));(#RotCenterX#-#RotCenterX#*Cos(Rad(#Angle#))-#RotCenterY#*Sin(Rad(#Angle#)));(#RotCenterY#+#RotCenterX#*Sin(Rad(#Angle#))-#RotCenterY#*Cos(Rad(#Angle#))).
