Sprites: reverse image?

Apologies for seemingly daft question, but I've searched for an answer to this and can't find anything obvious in the API docs. At the moment I have a sprite sheet that does stuff going in a right hand direction. How do I flip the sprite for going left?

    you can use sprite:setScaleX( sprite:getScaleX()*-1) to flip vertical or you can use sprite:setScaleY( sprite:getScaleY()*-1) to flip horizontally. However, you should be careful when positioning because anchorpoint will flip aswell.

    So using setAnchorPoint (0.5, 0.5) is good in this situation also as the sprite will flip on its midpoint, not its edge.

    Aye: snooks
