Re: Reflection around the inside of a circle

Ok, I'll try vectors instead, as trig is blowing my brain up :lol: So, I have a "disc" with coordinates discX and discY. Each frame they are updated with discXDir and discYDir to give the disc it's movement, inside a circle. If we call the centre of the circle x=0,y=0, how would I convert ...

Reflection around the inside of a circle

Hiya! I'm using an app called Droidscript to create a javascript game directly on my phone. In it, x goes from left to right, 0 to 1, and y goes from bottom to top, 0 to 1, regardless of the size or shape of the object. So on an image, the centre is 0.5, 0.5. I'm trying to work out how to reflect a ...

Re: Ensure only one instance of RealBasic app running

There are solutions to this problem that are beyond your ken. So to simplify it, use the lockfile trick. Open a particular file right next to the spreadsheet and/or executable for writing exclusively. If that fails, someone else had it open. Ahhh this is along the same lines as the original idea! T...

Re: Ensure only one instance of RealBasic app running

I *think* I've just thought of my own solution... When the program is run, it checks one of the cells (in the Excel file, the one that's being edited) to see if it says "Running". If it does, it pops up an error stating as such and closes the program. If it doesn't, it changes that cell to...

Good morning! I'm going to create a program in RealBasic (It's the only language I know as it's nice and simple [if a little cringeworthy, I know], so please refrain if possible from suggesting solutions in C/C++/Java etc as I'm unfamiliar with the languages, thankya :) ) The program will be stored ...

Cheap cough linctus. Effective or placebo?

Hiya! So I've bought some cough linctus (Bell's Cough Linctus to be precise). I've had a cough for about a week so I needed it! Anyway, it cost me £1.32 for a 200ml bottle. I've been using it for a day and a half and my cough isn't much better. It's not a bad cough, just the remnants of a cold that'...

That's easy! All you need is a few good size chunks of black crystal (though any colour will do, black is best). Ask Killashandra, she knows where to find some, if her memory hasn't gone already.
