hi, i want to retrieve the speed the mouse is moving on the screen. i have tried some time comparisons and devided it through the way the mouse moved during that time, but it didnt satisfy me. (i want to move some graphics-objects for eg half the time the mouse is passing by.) has someone experiences with that? please help me!
Did you say you tried distance / time and had problems? Have you ever looked at RoboCode? It's an IBM sponsored game environment. You write autonomous robots and send them into battle. I bring it up because there are links to source for user-designed robots. Some are very elaborate - thousands of lines of code. I recall seeing strategies to track opponent observed speed and direction so you can "lead" when shooting. It may be a long dig to find it, but I'm sure there are examples of such things out there. http://robocode.alphaworks.ibm.com/home/home.html
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
