Already discussed, calcnet precludes it do to it's use of interupts

That's doable, especially since when I was starting the game there were a lot of possible tank sprites thrown around.

I made that change, and some AI shots seem more accurate; others do not. I will continue testing after work today. I have added [clear] as a way to quit when a handful of AIs are fighting and failing. I need to implement the suggested tank sprites.

I can give that a try. Anyway, while at work today I thought about the math, and I think the denominator of the square root is prematurely losing precision. I'm therefore going to do [\frac{\frac{{\Delta}Y}{{\Delta}X}{\times}cos(\Theta)-sin(\Theta)}{100}] instead of prematurely dividing each term by 100. Problem is, 32-bit addition/subtraction with two pairs of two pairs of 8-bit register pairs is sorta breaking my brain for a moment. I'll be with you again shortly.
