Buck Does Just About the Same | Part 3

The graphics library i'm using uses a unit circle that is different than the unit circle that all trigonometric functions use, in order to orient objects on the screen. A normal unit circle is setup with 0° in the positive X direction, 90° in the positive Y direction, 180° in the negative X direction, and 270° in the negative Y direction. Their circle is rotated 90° counter-clockwise, and flipped over the Y axis. This combined with the fact that most computers consider the positive Y to go down the screen makes 0° point in the negative Y direction, 90° in the positive X direction, 180° in the positive Y direction, and 270° in the negative X direction. The fix turned out to be taking the angle from the graphics library multiplying it by -1 and adding 360° to get the angle on the standard unit circle. Since the program window has a flipped y-axis, I had to take the converted angle and plug it into the negative sine function and negative cosine function to get the X and Y, respectively. Then, I could take the X and Y and use it to modify the direction of my object. I haven't got a clue why the maintainers of the graphics library couldn't set up a unit circle correctly. Oh well.

So what you're saying, with regard to the circle, is that you had to pull a Willy Wonka - "Switch that, reverse it!" - and that to get it to play nicely with the code that you already had in place. Which, assuming I understand you, is way more than I know how to do.

 

Assuming I don't understand, well, the point is all the more pertinent. :P

 

So it sounds like the big project is a game?

I really just wanted to complain about the fact that I had to calculate that at all. :D

 

Yeah the CS class project is a game, i'm trying to do an astroids clone. I figured that would be best since i've already got the art for it.

How I feel about math word problems:

 

If I have 4 pencils and you have 7 apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof?  Purple, because aliens don't wear hats.

I got incredibly frustrated and angry last night. So, I stayed up to calm the truck down. It felt good. I'm calm and thinking clearly now, so that's all good. I really want to get back to my normal sleep schedule. At least, i'll endeavor to do so.

Not much sleep this time, huh?

 

Also, this is officially the end of the challenge! Kick back, relax, write up, and chill.

Hmm, yeah sleep has been lacking this challenge. This week i've been sleeping in since it's spring break. Tomorrow i'm back to my normal schedule.

 

In review, i've got a lot done so far. I've completed a side project, I got my new portfolio up and running, I made a Youtube tutorial (something i've wanted to do for a long time), and completed my 20,000 kick challenge.

 

I think the best course of action is to keep chugging. :D

Well, obviously keep chugging, but wouldn't it be interesting if you tried to skew toward more sleep?

 

Yes it would! Last night was really weird. I couldn't seem to stay asleep. I haven't got a clue as to why.

I mean, it could be stress or over-stimulation. Those are the general causes I tend to look for.

Mmm, that could be. Last night's sleep felt much better.

 

 

Metal anyone?
