This is a tutorial on how to create pixel-perfect accuracy for a mouse shooting game. This does not use any advanced mathematics or any extensions. It is pretty well written and is cut down to very few lines of code to make it easy to add to a game.

Oh, this is just a look at (0,0) from a target object, then keep going in the same direction. It works well, and using corresponding alterable values for many different bullets at once is a neat trick.

This suffers the same problem as my shooting system I'm afraid, fire multiple bullets, and the shooting goes to only 32 directions.

If you want perfect accuracy then just calculate the gradient between the two points and keep adding (make sure you use decimals).

I count 5 bullets onscreen at once. Seriously, just click the button a bunch all around the screen.
