    Here's a shameless pimp of my new game - Invaders from Space.

    Aha thanks.

    Pooling actually may provide an answer here - but I should have been a little clearer.

    Ahhh, ignore the above.

    The problem is that the current method I use to generate the points means I end up with some duplicate data.

    This duplicate data was skewing the result.

    hey trogdor, thx for the response.

    Your solution will work (I think), but I'm hoping to avoid a brute force method as it needs to be quite fast.

    I'm sure there must be a relatively fast way of...

    Angular sorting

    I'm really stuck with what I believe to be a sorting issue.

    That's actually pretty fun... I like the multiplayer aspect (it raises what would be a rather straightforward single player game.)
