physics



Today, I looked into a physics library in haXe. I want to include physics in my language. I find the physics library very user friendly, however I should look into it a bit more.
I was suprised to see BMX will be supporting Flash as well pretty soon. I wonder how Mark solved the "flip" issue? It was something I ran into: that there is no way to force refreshing the graphics in Flash. It is done automatically. I worked around that using a tight loop that breaks when a flip is needed.

I don't see it as an issue. Why flip when you don't have to? Less is more.

Well, his language is BlitzMax, only then aimed at different platforms:

So I figured he was going to implement Flip in there somehow.

In the terms of flash, (IMO) Flip wouldn't be "Now flip to the other buffer", it'd work more like the CPC's Frame command, as a way of saying, "I'm done.. This is it... Draw it NOW!!" so that everything takes a per-frame style effect, and things aren't drawn until ready..
