Super Parametric Equation Rendering Machine!

Post by adnzzzzZ » Wed Sep 21, 2011 5:16 am

Hello, everyone!

The other day I was looking for some movement patterns to use with bullets/enemies for a game I'm making and I stumbled upon some parametric equations that had some pretty good motions. To better visualize them I created this:



I liked it so much that I decided to create an application with more equations (it has 6 so far) and a way to change their parameters as they are being drawn. It's pretty buggy but it should be fun for like 10 hours! 2 minutes :huh:

You can change buttons/parameters with WASD or arrow keys and press enter or space to select the current button.

I highly recommend changing the name. Replace the word "Drawing", with something that starts with an 'R'.

Gentlemen, I must say I am ashamed to have ever called it a drawing machine. :oops:

No, that would be overdoing it.
