How to smooth graphics

Well typically those frames have same dt, only when there's something unexpected there's a gap. But to solve this problem you just either need some external timer, which will tick exactly on time and spawn a bullet. Or you can have a variable which will be incremented by dt and after it gets over some threshold it spawns a bullet, ussually you update the bullet after the spawning phase, so it will actually move as requested.

These delta time issues are all reasons why I prefer the simpler fixed logic rate approach. I know delta time might provide better results when done properly, but it's a difficult way to code for me. :)
