Hi folks, I started making a little 3d space shooter game.
I put together a radar and targetting setup for the first time and it would be great if it could be tested on different computers to see if it works or not.
If you give it a test then please let me know your screen width and height. It's displayed on screen.
Also, the green dot should be able to move all around the radar display and hopefully will not move outside the border.
With this type of radar, if the dot is near any outer edge then the target is behind you.

Since all you want is to ensure this works on different sized screens, you don't need anyone else to test it. You can do that yourself by setting a VirtualResolution and a WindowSize.
In fact, you'd get much better results testing it yourself because you can test every possible resolution and even ones that don't exist on real devices.

Hey thanks Scraggle, that works a treat. That's going to come in so handy.

My daughter even told me to put this in and it still worked. lol
