    That reminds me.. this is a mess!

    1. Not ANSI standard
    2. Just look at this:
    Code:
     #include <iostream.h> 
    int
    main() 
    { 
      int thisisanumber; 
      cout<<"Please enter a number:";
      cin>>thisisanumber; 
      cout<<"You entered: "<<thisisanumber;
      return 0; 
    }
    what a mess..

    3. You are scaring newbies away!

    I'm not the one in charge of tutorials, webmaster is. I just wrote some for him, with a bit of help from Silvercord.

    looks like a logicerror. You see where the "I" is in the sentence. Its not "webmaster"

    >> Silvercord and I wrote some for this site, and webmaster got them online now, so I figured I'd post a shameless plug

    Other than that you are right. The tutorials are in dire need for a rewrite. At least the headers should be corrected as it causes a lot of newbie questions in the board as well as on compiler specific boards on other sites.

    I think that recently Hammer has been maintaining the FAQ.

    Sure, I'm up for it. What topic? Normals/vectors/lighting, or did you have something else in mind?

    think of something that hasn't been done. I was thinking about realistic speed in a game, because that was one of the problems I've had trouble with, and with instantaneous velocity we could get into some calculus with derivatives, that'd be kind of neat.

    Here is a challange for ya since I've seen very few games that do it well.

    Accurately move a bullet in a normal flight path. And of course optionally include the bullet spread.
