in dnd, we treat diagonal movement on the grid as 5ft when it's really ~7. I just noticed my bird game has the exact same bug, my birds travel 40% faster on diagonals, and I am bad at thinking

my function for calculating average position was overflowing as if it's job was the overflow instead of calculate an average

just to nerd on this diagonal thing more, treating the hypotenuse of a right triangle as having a 1:1 ratio with the sides is 40% wrong. but if you need whole numbers (like for a pico 128x128 screen), 3:2 is only 5% off, much less noticeable. 7:5 is only 1% but moving 5 px at a time on a tiny screen is too jarring
