### Re: Autumn

Watching anime, playing Magic: the Gathering online, reading and posting here and getting angry at my Acer Aspire 5520 laptop that doesn't work properly. Also, I should be doing school work and cutting the grass, but I think I can do that a little bit later.

Two weeks later, I have the autumn break from school that lasts for one week. I'm planning to watch more anime, play more Magic: the Gathering online and reading and posting more. Hopefully I don't have to get angry at my Acer Aspire 5520 then, but probably I will though. Also, I hope that I will have some time to develop my game projects Ultimate Stickfigure Game (Puzzle, made with CoolBasic) and Jo pimeys saa (Strategy, it's a board game).

I'm programming some kind of html-manual editor. So I could easily make html-manual for my cbChipmunk physicsengine.

Hi Latexi95,

you got a Physics engine? is the description also in English?
this would be interesting for me. i am missing some formulas in mine Physics.

here is a new mathematic Basic command.

Function Constrain(float x, min, max) as float
iF x > min and x < max
return x
ElseiF x < min
return min
ElseiF x < max
return max
End iF
End Function

Yes. cbChipmunk is physics engine. But I haven't translated descriptions to English yet and Finnish descriptions aren't either good. That's why I'm programming this "manual-editor". I could make cbChipmunk-topic also to English-side. There are some examples in cbChipmunk's zip-packet and you can send me PM, If you have problems.

### Re: Autumn

Peter, wouldn't just a "Return min(max, max(min, x))" do the trick? ;)

My autumn consist mostly of army service, but what little time I have I'm spending mostly on coding, mostly C++ but I've made some new CB graphics tests too. Which reminds me; Peter (and our other non-Finnish pals!), if you haven't noticed, the Efektit ("Effects") topic has quite a few nice little graphics effects done on CB that you can just copy/paste and run, you might want to check those out :)

Hi Koodaaja,

No, (min & max) are variables here !
your Nuclear didn't run, ( translated to C). but works with old CoolBasic !
I translated Finnish into English with google and got a nerves breakdown.

Google translate might break code?

Sleeping, playing computer games (GTA IV & something small online games) Grass cutting and maybe studying some Deutsch for next week at highschool. Also I might start coding a new game.... (niinkuin keskeneräisiä ei olisi tarpeeksi..)
Sorry if my english is bad. Maybe i should speak Deutsch?

Edit: Oh yes and I'm gonna test my new speakers. One of them is maybe broken..

This is my first year of studying Deutsch, but I think i'm still good at it.
The words are easy to learn, but other things are quite expensive.

Expensive? How can a language be expensive (=kallis in Finnish)?

He means: difficult.
He might say: learning a language is expensive, (Books, pencil, time and so on)
