 Post: #1 [Solved] Shooting exactly 2 bullets in a second Hi all. At first, I wanna say, that I'm not a professional game developer or even programmer, so my question could be very, very dumb. I'm making some kind of a prototype of an arcade arena shooter (a bit lika a Geometry Wars clone ), and my problem is shooting. I need fire to be full auto (binded on the left mouse button) with a rate of fire 2 bullets in a second. So my Input section is like: Code: ```        if(Ms.b(0) && Time.curTime()-lastB>0.5)         {                 lastB=Time.curTime();         //checking free bullet obj             for (int i=0; i<300; i++)             //free?                 if (!Bl[i].Check())                 {                 //givin params to bullets, not so important                     Vec2 temp;                     temp = -Getpos()+Ms.pos();                     float =sqrt(temp.x*temp.x+temp.y*temp.y);                     temp.x/=g;                     temp.y/=g;                     Bl[i].Set(Getpos(), temp);                     break;                 }        }``` So, as you can see, I use Ms.b(0) event and I check if the differenct between current time in seconds and time of last shot is more then 0.5 seconds. Completly doesn't work. It is shooting >9000 bullets in a second :( What I am doing wrong? P.S. Sory for my poor english (This post was last modified: 03-09-2011 12:09 PM by Kreved.)

 Post: #2 RE: Shooting exactly 2 bullets in a second well you need to change the timer: PHP Code: `lastB+=Time.d();if(Ms.b(0) && lastB>0.5){//do checks herelastB = 0; //reset bullet timer.} ` There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.
