    do this at the root level:
    (you could just use numbers in the mc script, but this makes it easier to adjust quickly)

    min_rotate = -90;
    max_rotate = 90;

    then change your mc script to:


    var dy = _root._ymouse - this._y;
    var dx = _root._xmouse - this._x;
    _root.rotate_value = Math.atan2(dy,dx)*180/Math.PI;
    if((_root.rotate_value>_root.min_rotate)and(_root. rotate_value<_root.max_rotate)){
    this.arrow._rotation = _root.rotate_value;
    _root.rotate_tx = Math.round(_root.rotate_value);


    //the following 2 statements set the arrow to min and max if you move the mouse out of range
    this.arrow._rotation = _root.min_rotate;
    this.arrow._rotation = _root.max_rotate;
