I have the following issue. It's probably elementary level maths but I just can't figure it out! Given the following square, I need to find the angle to the bottom left corner from any given point on the map (denoted by the black squares). I always 'begin' facing directly North. http://i.stack.imgur.com/ijHnX.png I tried using 225 as the constant direction but sometimes I hit the boundary (wall) before I get to (0,0) so it must be dynamic... It must alter based on where I start. Right????
