Thread: Atan2 trouble

  1. #1

    Afrostyle Atan2 trouble

    I have a kind of... well... tower defence game kinda deal that i'm making and there are a small problem with it.

    I want the bullet to fire in the direction that the turret is facing and continue along that path. i already have everything else.

    also i would like the turret to stick every 10 pixles to the grid... any way to do that?

    please download the file and see what you can do. its also quite a cool game so you can have a look at the script too.

    :-D thanks,

    Stupid Saint

    uhm, atan2 is for turning coordinates into an angle. use sin/cos like this:

    _x += cos(angle) * speed;
    _y += sin(angle) * speed;

    and just set angle to whatever angle the tower is facing when the bullet spawns
