The lea just means pass by reference, from what  I can see it takes a pointer to the map in EAX.


void Compute ( void* mapptr, int unknown, short* a, short* b )
// stuff goes here


This is what tells it where to draw the laser from and it's obviously related to cell computation or other drawing because I see this call referenced elsewhere.  I haven't checked, nor do I really desire to spend too much time on it.  The only question is what other input is necessary, and I'll examine that.  Once you have this working it's a trivial matter to call drawline in the unit/infantry firing code to render the laser.


This is the first real reverse engineering I've done in months on C&C.  I'm lazy, get over it.
