Peds doesn't look where I want

First of all, hi

I'm having problems "scripting" (if can be called like that) my peds.

I have a "peds.lua" file in my map file and the proper meta.xml

My problem is that some peds doesn't look where I want (North = 0º) but other peds are looking good.

This is the code of the bugged peds

    local af = createPed ( 287, 236.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000, 0 ) 
    local af1 = createPed ( 287, 237.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000, 0 ) 
    local af2= createPed ( 287, 238.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000, 0 ) 
    local af3 = createPed ( 287, 239.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000, 0 ) 

Instead of facing the north, they face the west.

This is the code of the good peds

    local Staff2 = createPed ( 217, 1534.6999511719, -1526.5999755859, 22.80000038147, 88 ) 
    local Staff3 = createPed ( 211, 1535.4000244141, -1523.0999755859, 22.80000038147, 288 ) 
    local Staff4 = createPed ( 217, 1547.4000244141, -1536.0999755859, 22.80000038147, 258 ) 
    local Staff5 = createPed ( 217, 1471.8000488281, -1519, 22.80000038147, 4 ) 

Whats different between one code and the other?

From now, thanks

I think he means looking at a point. Well there is a function

http://wiki.multitheftauto.com/wiki/SetPedLookAt

I suggest using it to look at getLocalPlayer()

function setLook() 
local x,y,z = getElementPosition(getLocalPlayer()) 
    for i,v in ipairs(getElementsByType("ped")) do 
        setPedLookAt(v,x,y,z,-1,getLocalPlayer()) 
    end 
end 
addEventHandler("onResourceStart",getRootElement(),setLook) 
addEventHandler("onClientRender",getRootElement(),setLook) 

Note: It is not synced as it is clientside if there is 2 players they will see the ped looking at them.

You Could Use
setElementRotation 

In the console says

peds.lua:70: Bad argument @ 'setElementRotation'

I tryied this

setElementRotation (af, true)

this

setElementRotation (af, 0, true)

and this

setElementRotation (af, 0)

What im doing wrong?

No, im not asking that, infact im asking how to rotate them. Thanks for the help anyway

I did this SS wich I think can help to understand

0 degrees = no change

90 degrees = 3/4 of a full rotation

180 degrees = 2/4 of a full rotation

-90 degrees = 1/4 of a full rotation

360 degrees = no change

Find "circle 2d" on Google and you'll see the scale.

Try this

   
        function CreateMyPed ( ARMY ) 
        local af = createPed ( 287, 236.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000 ) 
        local af1 = createPed ( 287, 237.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000 ) 
        local af2= createPed ( 287, 238.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000 ) 
        local af3 = createPed ( 287, 239.89999389648, 1970.6999511719, 18,800000 ) 
    addEventHandler ( "onResourceStart", getResourceRootElement(), CreateMyPed )

Wrong.

addEventHandler("onResourceStart", resourceRoot, 
    function() 
        af = createPed(287, 236.89, 1970.69, 18.80) 
        af1 = createPed(287, 237.89, 1970.69, 18.80) 
        af2 = createPed(287, 238.89, 1970.69, 18.80) 
        af3 = createPed(287, 239.89, 1970.69, 18.80) 
    end
