I dont understand what do you whant, i dont know if there is coz i'm drunk :P, but i like single race games like Atari. Thats "Enduro" was great (thats climate changes) , also "grandprix" was a great game (the cars were from left to right and the user only use the keypad for move it).

i need to get the angle between two points , like (0,0) and (1,1) = 45 degrees or (0,0) and (0,98364)=0 degrees. understand?


this will be used to make a stearing wheel for the car.

angle = atan ( (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) )

No, it's called arctan and abbereiviated for atan.

when y = tan x
then x = atan y

------------EDIT------------

It's diplayed on our calculator buttons as tan^-1, and it's also written mathematically like that, but never confuse it with:
1
-------
tan x
