PostPosted: Thu Jun 10, 2004 7:20 pm   Post subject: Help with For loop that gets stuck in my game

Hey i'm making missile command and this part of my game... the anti missile part -----

[code]

procedure mouse

var mousex, mousey, button : int
mousewhere (mousex, mousey, button)
if button = 1 then

for rad: 1..25
cls
drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad, rad, 66)
delay(25)
end for


for decreasing rad: 25..1
cls
drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad, rad, 66)
delay(25)
end for
end if
end mouse


loop
cls
mouse
delay(25)
View.Update
end loop




[code]

if i put something else in the loop say one of my misiles for the game (missile command) the missile lags until the mouse procedure is finished.... is there any way to get around this and still have the same Mouse Procedure affect ... i really need this anyone knows??[/code]

put the whole expanding/shrinking circles thingy in the main loop, that is not in its own for loop, and have a the radius decrease / increase using if statements in the loop, while ur other parts run at the same time.
Ur other option is to use a process, but some ppl here do not like processes, and for me they make View.Update harder to use.

okay but i'm not sure how to use if statements to make something add smoothly like that only jump to it...?

Well, I'll give u an example:
instead of this, which lags the ball falling:
code:

setscreen ("offscreenonly")
var x, y : int := maxy
procedure mouse

    var mousex, mousey, button : int
    mousewhere (mousex, mousey, button)
    if button = 1 then

        for rad : 1 .. 25
            View.Update
            drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad - 1, rad - 1, white)
            drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad, rad, 66)
            delay (10)
        end for


        for decreasing rad : 25 .. 1
            View.Update

            drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad + 1, rad + 1, white)
            drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad, rad, 66)
            delay (10)
        end for
    end if
end mouse

x := 200
loop

    y -= 3
    if y <= 0 then
        y := maxy
    end if
    drawfilloval (x, y, 10, 10, 12)
    delay (10)
    View.Update
    cls
    mouse


end loop


You have this, which has the ball and click in the same loop
code:

setscreen ("offscreenonly")
var x, y : int := maxy
 var radius, mousex, mousey, button, drawx, drawy : int:=0
var dir: string:="out"
var check:= false

 procedure mouse

   
    mousewhere (mousex, mousey, button)
    if button = 1 then
if check= false then
drawx:=mousex
drawy:=mousey
end if
dir:= "out"
end if
if dir= "out" then
radius+= 1
drawfilloval (drawx, drawy, radius, radius, 66)
if radius >= 25 then
dir:= "in"
end if
end if
if dir= "in" then
radius-=1
drawfilloval (drawx, drawy, radius, radius, 66)
if radius <=0 then
dir:=""
check:= false
end if
end if

end mouse

x := 200
loop

    y -= 3
    if y <= 0 then
        y := maxy
    end if
    drawfilloval (x, y, 10, 10, 12)
    delay (10)
    View.Update
    cls
    mouse


end loop

how about this... it dosn't work but it has potential...

code:

var rad : int := 0

loop
    var mousex, mousey, button : int
    mousewhere (mousex, mousey, button)

    if button = 1 then

        drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad, rad, 13)
       
       rad += 5
       
        if rad >= 50 then
        rad += 5
   
        end if
       end if
       
       delay(25)
   


cls


there must be a bug in here can u see it...?
aside

i'm not sure what are you doing, but i think the bug you are referring to is that it will continuely draw the circle bigger and bigger. try this:

code:

var rad , cha: int := 0
cha:=5

loop
    var mousex, mousey, button : int
    mousewhere (mousex, mousey, button)

    if button = 1 then

        drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad, rad, 13)
       
       rad += cha
       
        if rad >= 50 then
        cha := -5
   
        end if
       end if
if rad<= 0 then
cha:=5
end if
       
       delay(25)
   


cls




I currently don't have turing available, so i'm only guessing

well, my "check:= true / check:= false" part on the second code box does that in conjunction with variables: drawx and drawy

but look if u hold down click... the oval is still there and u can like paint the screen almost ... do u see... this is missile command u know how it goes out then back in staying on a point on the screen.... how can i do that this is my code now...

code:
    mousewhere (mousex, mousey, button)

    if button = 1 then

        drawfilloval (mousex, mousey, rad, rad, 13)

        rad += cha
        if button = 0 then
            rad := 0
        end if
        if rad >= 30 then
            cha := -2
            delay (25)

        end if
        if rad <= 0 then
            cha := 2
        end if

    end if
