Java Collision Detection Help

Recommended Posts

I copied the code from Eclipse because the adding it seemed to cut it off after 60 lines. I can fix it if you tell me how and you want it in the special box. Anyways this is the enemy class in my game. Currently what I have is a little tank that moves and shoots bullets at an enemy(moving square). When he shoots the enemy health decreases, it reverses the enemy direction and the score goes up by 100. My problem is basically that the collision detection seems to be random...Sometimes it will count the bullet as 1 hit...sometimes 2 or 3. I don't know why it's doing this. Can anyone help or give suggestions? All help appreciated. Thank you.

Ah you could be right. I could probably do that but I don't know how to destroy it. I have looked on the internet but I haven't really found any good information. Any suggestions on how to do it?
