Hello everyone! I need some help, I''m farmiliar with vectors but its been a while since I''ve done them. Is there a way to go from one vector like (100 deg.,10 mag.) back to the individual forced that acted opon it? The reason I''m asking is because I need to take a players speed and direction in the game and move the world to match the players motion on the x axis and y axis. Hope this makes sense. Thanks.

To convert from polar coordinates to rectangular coordinates:
x = A * cos θ
y = A * sin θ

Where A is the magnitude, and θ is the angle counterclockwise of the positive x axis, in radians.


How appropriate. You fight like a cow.
