Direction wont change

I'm still testing Curvy and here is another issue: 

I wish to determine on my own the direction that should take my controller at an intersection. Basically, when there is a connection, if the next spline can be continued at right or left, I look at the tangentes to determine the best way from my terms. Well so I did that but even if I set my controller a new direction at -1, it keep to be at 1. I set some log on Curvy's script to find out where my direction could be erase, but I didn't found the issue.

Here he's the simple code where I assign the direction:

// Find new spline
int randomIndex = Random.Range(0, valideControlPoints.Count);
CurvySplineSegment controlPoint = valideControlPoints[randomIndex];
if (controlPoint != e.ControlPoint)
     e.Follow(controlPoint); // Follow the new spline

     // Set the controller to use the new spline            
     Controller.Spline = controlPoint.Spline;
     Controller.RelativePosition = e.TF;
     Controller.Direction = FindBestDirection(controlPoint, e.Spline, e.TF, Controller.Direction);
Instead of
Controller.Direction = FindBestDirection(controlPoint, e.Spline, e.TF, Controller.Direction);
e.Direction = FindBestDirection(controlPoint, e.Spline, e.TF, Controller.Direction);
This solution is not obvious, I agree. This is definitely something I want to make more obvious in future updates.
Let me know if it didn't work for you.
Please consider leaving a review for Curvy. This will help a lot keeping Curvy relevant in the eyes of the Asset Store algorithm.
Yeah it works!

It's a bit confusing since you still have to do "Controller.Spline = controlPoint.Spline;" after using e.Follow()
