Hello, I'm having troubles figuring out how to convert my direction (in degrees) to rise over run for my player's x and y variables and still be able to limit the speed of the player.

Math.atan2 should do the job

EDIT:
I'm lazy, and my reply suggests it aswell. I'm going to give you more than just that little hint: The source code I used to calculate the velocities of a projectile shot form the player.
 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8 `Shot shot = new Shot(player.getX(), player.getY(),         player.getRotation());shot.setXV(shot.getXV()         + Math.cos(Math.toRadians(player.getRotation()))         * GameMain.shotSpeed + player.getXVelocity());shot.setYV(shot.getYV()         + Math.sin(Math.toRadians(player.getRotation()))         * GameMain.shotSpeed + player.getYVelocity());`

It should be pretty selfexplainatory. The angle was entered in radians, and is normally in degress for my convinience.

Cheers!

cos = X, sin = Y.
