    it turned out that the dll file is too big to attach so i found a website that you can get it from in a sec.


    allegro dll


    if that didnt work here is thewebsite
    you must find the dll by your own

    As I was saying....translate the bullets relative to the player.


    The bullets on screen position will NOT match the bullet's world position.

    bullet.screen.x=Player.screen.x;
    bullet.screen.y=Player.screen.y;

    This will draw the bullet correctly.

    But:

    bullet.world.x=Player.world.x;
    bullet.world.y=Player.world.y;

    This is the coords you use to test for what tile the character/bullet is in.

    bullet.tile.row=bullet.world.x/tile.size.x;
    bullet.tile.column=bullet.world.y/tile.size.y;

    Or you can translate all objects relative to the world. This would be easiest since all you do is check for collisions against the onscreen x,y coords.
