    bouncing ball

    Jimmathy Level 1
      I have a bow made of 4 MCs, one on each side. When the ball MC loads I want it to start traveling in a random direction. When it hits a wall of the box i want it to bounce off with an opposite angle. for example: if the ball was traveling at a right angle along the x axis toward the wall on the right, i want it to reverse its direction on the x axis. i can do this but the hard paart comes when i try to get it to bounce at an angle off the wall. So if the ball is traveling at a wall at a 45 degree angle it bounces off as if it would on a pool table(where the ball bounces at the opposite angle). Its hard to word this sorry. I hope you understand. So how would i script the ball to do this?
