I'm a newb to programming and was wondering if anyone could give me suggestions on how to do collisions for hitting a target that you've shot at. I've been trying and just can't get it to work. Thx

we got tutorials on rectangle and circle colision detections available... all depends on what kind of target you're trying to hit and with what.

well I was trying a space shooter with a moving enemy picture that I drew in paint and flys across the screen. i'm using draw line to create the shot should I try to use draw oval and box to make the enemy to make it easier??

well you could treat the ships as circles (keep the picture though) and use equations y = mx + b and x^2 + y^2 = radius to see if your lazer line intersects the ship or not.

so would I use the coordinates of my laser line for y and x in y=mx +b and the coordinates of the enemy for x and y in x^2 + y^2 = radius and then check if the line intersects the diameter at anytime right??

yeah, but as bugz pointed out in another post, I got forumulas mixed up a bit...

for the line, its better to use Ax+By+C=0 I think...

circle is (x-a)^2 + (y-b)^2 = radius^2 where a/b are x/y of circle's center.

1984 is a great book. What does that have to do with anything.

1 + 1 is only 2 becuase we've been trained to believe it (or somethign to that effect... haven't read the book for a while)

it was 2+2=5... and those guys are right... here's the math proof behind it (someone had part of this equation as their signature)

assume x = a
x^2 = ax
x^2 - a^2 = ax - a^2
(x+a)(x-a) = a(x-a)
x+a = a
x + x = x
2x = x
2x + x = x + x
3x = 2x
5x - 2x = 2x
5x = 2x + 2x
*divide both sides by x
5 = 2 + 2

So teachnically... the book is telling the truth. 2+2 does equal to 5.
