var dy = _ymouse-arrow._y; var dx = _xmouse-arrow._x; this takes y/x values and substracts them to make the legs of a triangle.

var radians = Math.atan2(dy, dx); Arctanget is the opposite of tangent which is triganometry if you dont know it is not a big deal right now. buy it takes the ratio of the values and divides them i believe(not 100% sure) you can also use var radians = Math.atan(dy / dx); and it would be the same. but that make a radian value.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
