Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: reflection math and collision detection problem

    reflection math and collision detection problem

    I am now making a space shooting game,but I still dont know how the meteor should change its direction after being hit by the space ship just like the picture below(the arrow is the direction that the object is move)it should be simular to a pool game.For the collision detection part i used Seperating axis thereom.And is there a way to check collision detection with concave shape?I am using java right now,so I cant use that put movieclips around a shape and check if they r hitting another shape method,and I don't want the putting some convex shapes together to make a concave shape method,because when you have to make a complex concave should it will be really annoying -thanks
