Plot Projectile Trajectory ORBZAMPLE - Plot Point Questions

I've been looking over the "Plot Projectile Trajectory ORBZAMPLE" by ORBZ for an archery game idea I'd like to try and make. I have to questions:

1) I'd like to move the gun to another place on the screen, but when I do that the plot plots (that is, the trajectory) still spawn from the old position. I've been trying to play around with some of the math functions, but I can't make it work. The math is very complicated!

2) I'd also like to have collision obstacles that would stop the plot points from passing through. I'd love to find a way for the plot points to simply hit the obstacles and stop instead of continuing off screen.

See, or search "Plot Projectile Trajectory ORBZAMPLE" on Gamesalad for the template.

Thanks for your time.

    Check out this thread, we have been trying to deal with that for quite a while now.

    Thanks a lot, JPickard! I'll take a more in-depth look at the thread you mentioned when I get off of work.

    Before posting, I did search this site. The only thread that I found that directly dealt with the ORBZ template was one in which, at the end of the thread, the original poster was just going to contact ORBZ himself/herself because none of the other posters could figure out the math either. I didn't want to do that because I do not know ORBZ and do not want to be a nuisance. That's why I posted here.

    Anyway, thanks again for your help.
