Remember how some old games use to have cheat codes that let you unlock debugging mode. When I was younger I was always irradiated that all this did was make a bunch of numbers appear in the corner of the screen. I've learned those numbers are my friends.
I checked my bookshelf but unfortunately I sold my geo and trig math books for money that was probably wasted on junk food and other university supplies. I wasn't completely out a luck, my modern philosophy book was of no value to anyone and thus remains in my possession. I since Descartes was the father of analytical geometry his Discourse on Methods might shade some light on my problem. A little reading revealed that by assuming everything I can doubt does not exist and only accepts things I know are absolutely true I should be about to completely rederive all of geometry and trigonometry from innate concepts.
A half hour and one existential crisis later and I decided to just check Wikipedia. Ultimately my ship is now moving in the proper direction when press the move button.
|Probably would demonstrate my progress better if I captured some video, maybe next time|
Next step: Smooth out ship movements and handle collisions with screen boarders. Begin writing code to handle ships weapon.
