i am getting pissed off, so i thought i'd ask. I need to get a circle to move in an arch. can someone give me some pionters?
problem is that after a short period of time it starts to move too quickly :/

use trig to find your new location.

SOH CAH TOA

or you could use a circle equation... x^2 / Rx + y^2 / rY = 1

Radius remains the same, X is determined by forloop, solve for y and you got your new position...

Though that would work for 0 to 180 degrees... use trig if you wanna move further.

I dunno if this is what yer askin for... =/
code:
View.Set ("offscreenonly")
var y := 0
var a, b, c := 0.0
a := .001
b := 0
c := 50

for x : -320 .. 320
    y := round (a * ((x + b) ** 2) + c)
    drawfilloval (x + 320, y, 10, 10, 9)
    View.Update
    delay (10)
    cls
end for

i guess this is as fast as it can be...
code:
View.Set ("offscreenonly")
var yy, y := 0
var a, b, c := 0.0
a := .00099
b := 0
c := 0

for x : 0 .. 640
    y := round (a * ((x + b) ** 2) + c)
   
    %remove this loop to make it faster
    for xx : 0 .. 640
        yy := round (a * ((xx + b) ** 2) + c)
        drawdot (xx, yy, 12)
    end for
    %remove this loop to make it faster
   
    drawfilloval (x, y, 10, 10, 9)
    View.Update
    cls
end for

oooooooh sorry=(
nvm the last post try this one u can make it go as fast as u want
code:
var yy, y := 0
var a, b, c := 0.0
a := .00099
b := 0
c := 0

for x : 0 .. 640 by 5 % this is the speed
    y := round (a * ((x + b) ** 2) + c)

    %remove this loop to make it faster
    for xx : 0 .. 640
        yy := round (a * ((xx + b) ** 2) + c)
        drawdot (xx, yy, 12)
    end for
    %remove this loop to make it faster

    drawfilloval (x, y, 10, 10, 9)
    View.Update
    cls
end for
