Cursor on minimap points wrong direction.

The cursor on my minimap points the wrong direction constantly. , Example, i was fighting a mob with my pet and my cursor, which is gray, is pointing left while i just go straight. And no it is not pointing to anything in particular. Also my pet which had a red arrow, i guess because he was fighting was pointing a complete opposite way of the mob and me. So can anyone help out?

Thank you much,
goat

It doesn't matter if you're going straight or turning, it will point left if you are going west. Unless you are used to having the compass ring turn instead (rotating minimap), in which case your arrow would always point north (that's a setting in Interface Options). Or, perhaps I'm not understanding what you mean?

Could you provide a screenshot of what you are seeing compared to what you would like to see? I just want to make sure we're on the same page.

Ok here is a shot:

Notice I am going straight down the road on the map but if you look at the minimap, I am facing to the right.

That's not a minimap, that's a megamap! Anyways, you are going straight but you're going to the east. That's why the map shows you going 'right'. There's an option in the Interface/Social menu of Blizzard, but I'm not sure if it will also work with your map addon. What addon is it?

That's Carbonite and it looks like the standard Blizz map has been Integrated. Not sure how the rotation will work as I dont integrate my maps.

Ah yes, it looks like the "integrated" minimap is rotated wrong. It shows the road as running north-south instead of east west. You do probably have minimap rotation enabled in Interface Options. I'll move this into the Carbonite Bugs forum so you can get some more help on this issue.

This was fixed in 3.1 - make sure you grab the latest version.
