Sigh. Ok I have started a little shooter project nothing fancy. I have just one bullet at the moment which when i press a key, moves using SDL. I do my target coords using my mouse, so i would have my "ship" as bullet origin and my mouse pointer as the bullet destination. I cant seem to make the bullet fly straight towards my destination. It has todo with my logic i think As I just check x and y and compensate accordingly. Do you guys have any suggestions ??

if (space_pressed)
	{		
		if (g_Bullet.screen_location.y < yBullet)
		{
			g_Bullet.screen_location.y += BULLET_SPEED;
		}
		
		if (g_Bullet.screen_location.y > yBullet)
		{
			g_Bullet.screen_location.y -= BULLET_SPEED;
		}

		if (g_Bullet.screen_location.x < xBullet)
		{
			g_Bullet.screen_location.x += BULLET_SPEED;
		}
		
		if (g_Bullet.screen_location.x > xBullet)
		{
			g_Bullet.screen_location.x -= BULLET_SPEED;
		}
}

Any help greatly appreciated!

Ill have a look thanks!

EDIT : You made one typo, and for the benefit of others fixed it up.


float angle = atan2(mouse.y - g_Bullet.screen_location.y, mouse.x - g_Bullet.screen_location.x);

g_Bullet.screen_location.x += cos(angle) * BULLET_SPEED;
g_Bullet.screen_location.y += sin(angle) * BULLET_SPEED;

Upping your rating.. thank you VERY much!
