Re: A minor complaint and materials request...

If you looked at my posts previous to this one you would see exactly what I have been struggling with. I will try to explain it here. I understand loops and that things work frame by frame. Where I am fuzzy is... How do I use functions in place of the loops? I figured out how to make the square with...

A minor complaint and materials request...

Before I start I want to thank Chili for the tutorials and all his hard work on them. I just started to watch Lesson 10, and I'm left trying to figure out what I want to do next. I was very disappointed that Chili did not walk through the code for moving and re-sizing the cube, nor has he, as near a...

Re: Need help understanding lesson 7-8 moving reticle code

OK, so I think I understand this now, let me know what you think. Chili uses the X axis to move Y and the Y axis to move X because it is very difficult, with what he has taught us so far, to move along the same axis for which you are checking. I don't know how to make that statement easier to unders...

Re: Need help understanding lesson 7-8 moving reticle code

I think you figured it out! OK, I have to think about this some more, preferably on a day when my mind is not elsewhere and I have had more sleep. But I will go over the loop again and try to figure out how to do this correctly. Listen I really, honestly and truly appreciate your reply! I knew there...

Hey I still need help with this!

So I re-worked my code, made it as clear as I could, tried to stick within the bounds of what Chili has taught so far (but I am fast approaching my maximum skill level.) Using my solution I still can not get the cursor to move, and I can see no reason why it does not do so. Please look at my attache...

Re: Need help understanding lesson 7-8 moving reticle code

Well it got worse, not better. I am about 30 minutes into lesson 8, and now Chili has us switching the if statements around to fix the corner issue. Attached is a picture that should clearly depict how it seems the code is operating to my mind. The way I see it none of the statements should execute ...

Re: Trouble Understanding x++ and y++ Coding

It, as far as I understand, pre-incriments x and y. So in the case of x++ what is really being said is x = x + 1. This increments x by 1, after this bit of code is executed. But in the case of ++x I guess it's like saying x + 1 = x. It increments it first and asks questions later. I hope that clarif...

Need help understanding lesson 7-8 moving reticle code

If you have not completed the homework for lesson 7 do not look at this thread! UPDATE! The code below has been changed to reflect how it looks after altering it per Chili's instructions in Lesson 8! OK, so here is my code for lesson 8: // Start moving reticle code int yTMove = 100; // Defines start...

Re: Problem with the program (Framework thingy) at lesson 5

OK it sounds like you are running into the Windows 7/8 issues as others have posted about here. First thing to do is to install the first service pack for Visual Studio 2010 express. See if that fixes the issue. Next thing is to set it up to work in compatibility mode. I will try to link this thread...
