Hey guys, I'm having a problem. I'm busy with a game where AI archers must hit moving targets autonomously. What I need is a formula/formulas/system where I can input the initial position, final position and initial velocity of a projectile and it will calculate the best angle at which to fire it to hit the target. Can you guys point me in the right direction? I've googled and wiki'ed and I can't find a good solution (my maths isn't fantastic either so simple will be nice). Thanks for any help you guys can give me.
