Just wanted to point it out, I don't know any graphics so I won't be able to help you there.

Anyways, the trig functions, namely tan don't even give near the correct value, so here are the actual functions. I also updated sin to allow negative numbers, forgot to do that. Here is the new code, without any of the testing stuff that I had before that I was going to use:
Code: [Select]
`unsigned char sinArray[90] = {0, 4, 8, 13, 17, 22, 26, 31, 35, 40, 44, 48, 53, 57, 61, 66, 70, 74, 79, 83, 87, 91, 95, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 120, 124, 127, 131, 135, 139, 143, 146, 150, 154, 157, 161, 164, 167, 171, 174, 177, 181, 184, 187, 190, 193, 196, 198, 201, 204, 207, 209, 212, 214, 217, 219, 221, 223, 226, 228, 230, 232, 233, 235, 237, 238, 240, 242, 243, 244, 246, 247, 248, 249, 250, 251, 252, 252, 253, 254, 254, 255, 255, 255, 255, 255};void fastSinMult(int *val, int degree) { if (degree == 90) { return; } else if (degree < 90 && degree>=0) { *val = (*val)*sinArray[degree+1]; (*val) = (*val) >> 8; return; } else if (degree > 90 && degree <= 180) { fastSinMult(val, 180 - degree); return; } else if (degree > 180 && degree <= 360) { fastSinMult(val, degree - 180); (*val) *= -1; return; } else if (degree > 360) fastSinMult(val, degree % 360); else { fastSinMult(val, -degree); (*val) = -(*val); }}void fastCosMult(int *val, int degree) { fastSinMult(val, degree - 90);}void fastTanMult(int *val, int angle) { int val1 = *val; int val2 = *val; fastSinMult(&val1, angle); fastCosMult(&val2, angle); (*val) = (*val)*val1 / val2;}`
That's great! Thanks for fixing it. I will implement it now

Btw, you can divide the circle in 8 octands, that will reduce the static data even more

Interesting idea. Well I could store a lot more static values. I have half a MB of flash to use up. I will be able to fit multiple fonts too in that space, so I don't think I need to compact this more (for speed reasons too).

Sorry again. So sorry. Even after testing I didn't really pay attention to the cos values or tan values. I modified my second post to work. I checked the outputs of all the functions, and they seem pretty good. Not perfect, obviously, and you have to be very safe with tan due to divide by 0 error.

Rounded rectangles would be useful too I guess. And if somebody has a lightweight raycaster or raytracer written in C or who could port one, I would absolutely love to have it in the graphics library. At 120MHz core speed, a raytracer or raycaster is feasible and would allow for more great games.
I'd see that more as a linkable library than a built in feature, it's not exactly small.

There are really only two ways to make it happen: Not or builtin
Problems when its not builtin are either size or speed releated. So we try to include a compact raycaster.

Would the raycaster allow people to use textures?  Otherwise if it's large then maybe it wouldn't be worth adding. On the other hand, if it supports textures and is even larger then that won't be worth it either, so I would say only add raycasting if it won't take too much space.

Also I think that some useful graphics type things you could have would be translating and rotating the display screen.
It would go something along the lines of this:
Code: [Select]
`//some global vars private to the file with them, forget what modifier specifies that so just leaving it beint degRot;//degree rotatedint transX;//amount translatedint transY;void setPixelTR(int x, int y){//T is translated, R is rotated. This requires floats, and I am not sure how to do it without, but maybe just mult everything by 256 like I did with fast trig, and then bit shift >>8?    int mag=sqrt(x^2+y^2);    int angle=acos(x/mag);    angle+=degRot;    setPixel(mag*cos(angle)+transX, mag*sin(angle)+transY);}`
Also I am working on arc trig functions. You input a val from 0 to 256 and get the angle correspoding to that value, similar to a converse of my fast trig. It is taking a while cause I also have to make a fast sqrt function for atan(so far I have made an extremely inaccurate one(it got sqrt 7500=82. 82*82=6724, so innacurate. It should be 86 or 87) using bit shifting, which I will use as a guess for the average one that I don't remember the name of. If the number passed to be square rooted is 16 bits or less, I use an index of 256 numbers square rooted, so it uses them. Otherwise the array would be too large.), as atan=fastACos(math.sqrt(1/(1+math.pow(val,2)))), which I calculated for my learn to fly idle game, that really didn't improve performance, but I just wanted to make it for excercise.

Translation is defenitely cooll, though im not so sure about rotation. Since it requires a sqrt and an acos for every pixel it will be horribly slow...

I think 90° steps are enough.

curently looking into triangles and stumbled upon u8glibs convex polygon drawing.
i cant realy figure out how it works but it might me nice to have
this is in c++ and we need it in c. im not the best translater and not fully understanding whats going on makes it even harder

oh and we got circles filled circles and lines linetriangle in the code and working

I really don't like the licence of the code. It requires us to include a copyright. I think its better to use the functions provided earlier in this topic.

Also I was rewriting the image converter in Java as we had way better results there.
It will have a GUI and a command line so that it's easy for beginners and powerful for people who like to include it into an automated build system like make.

I really don't like the licence of the code. It requires us to include a copyright. I think its better to use the functions provided earlier in this topic.
That's just the BSD license, the "copyright notice" is only a request for credits.

Sure, but i don't like and can't include the licence into the binary image. I want to have as much of the code written by us or people interested in the project as possible. I don't like reusing others code when not required. In this case, as we have most functions that we will use provided by either the great people here, written ourselves or adapted from MIT code, I think we will just rewirite the external code.

The copyright notice must be distributed with the binaries. That means you can put a credits screen, have it in a readme or even on a flier that comes with the console.
