Hi,

I am using vb.net to make a shoot em up game. I can fire 2 missiles up the screen but what I cant do is fire an  unlimited amount of missiles. Now I think at most i could only fire 10-20 visible on the screen if i hold down space bar to fire.

How can i keep track of each missile with a timer?
Have  a collection of timers?
