rotatesprite displays tiles onscreen. This command is only allowed during certain events.
<x> X coordinate, normally ranged 0-320
<y> Y coordinate, normally ranged 0-200
<zoom> is normally 65536. (ex: 131072 is zoomed in 2X and 32768 is half-sized)
<tilenum> is the tile number.
<shade> is 0 normally but can be any standard shade up to 31 or 63.
<pal> can be from 0-255.
<alpha> translucence, 0-255
<x1>, <y1>, <x2>, and <y2> are boundaries on the screen that define where the tile may be drawn. If you want to draw a menu, use orientation bit 8, and the boundaries
0 0 xdim-1 ydim-1 as shown in example #2. If you want to draw a weapon, do not use bit 8 and use boundaries
windowx1 windowy1 windowx2 windowy2, as shown in example #1. The difference is that xdim and ydim stay constant, while the other four shrink depending on the player's screen size.
