my game will work, my game will work!

There is no movement on the Y plane except rotation, which is 'heading' below.

to strafe right I am trying:

 1  2 `            xpos += (float) Math.cos(heading * CubeWars.piover180) * speed;            zpos += (float) Math.sin(heading * CubeWars.piover180) * speed;`

At game launch, strfing right works, but the moment I rotate on the Y axis, strafing no longer works.
Where is my math wrong?  (I was a Bio major who only took calculus in 1985, so laugh it up! )

I'm just copying in the code to strafe right in Auriga3D, so you can work it take a stab at converting it for your purposes.  +Z is up in Auriga3D / Quake3

 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12 `/** *  Move the camera's position in our world. * The direction of movement is based on the current viewing direction. * moves the camera 90 degress to the right; * * @param  step  Amount to move. */public final void strafeRight(float step){   origin.x -= step * (float) Math.sin(yaw + STRAFERIGHT);   origin.y += step * (float) Math.cos(yaw + STRAFERIGHT);}`

STRAFERIGHT = -90 * PIDIV180;
yaw is rotation about the Z axis

Thanks.  After some tinkering, I think I have it.
