Yes, did exactly that.

math.h is included in a include-file I included in the mainloop-file. So it should be working....

I will check everthing again..

what's the problem? you didn't say. not working is not good enough. does it give you an error when you compile? or when you run? or does it work, but the results are not what you expected?

one side note, all c++ sin/cos/tan functions operate in radians. radians are similar to degrees, but have different values:
0 degrees = 0 radians
90 degrees = pi / 2 radians
180 degrees = pi radians
360 degrees (same as 0 degrees) = 2 * pi radians (same as 0 radians)

so if you want to convert them, use this formula:
degrees = (180 / pi) * radians
radians = (pi / 180) * degrees

i'm doing this off top of my head, so please correct me if i made any mistakes.

The problem is already solved.

I wrote Sin() instead of sin(). I just wrote a capital letter ''S''. That was all...
