I was searching through some QIII code and in cgame, q_math.c i found this: vec3_t bytedirs[NUMVERTEXNORMALS] = { {-0.525731f, 0.000000f, 0.850651f}, {-0.442863f, 0.238856f, 0.864188f}, {-0.295242f,

Did a programmer at id have to type that up? Is there a pattern and WTF does it do? I smell fear.

I would guess it is either a lookup table or some hard coded easter egg. BTW, it was most likely generated by a small program and then copy+pasted in, that way you avoid wasting time generating it every time the program starts.

Can''t anyone read these days?

vec3_t bytedirs[NUMVERTEXNORMALS]

It says "Vertex Normals".

That''s complex stuff. I think this stuff is more complex than rocket science I''ve ever seen. I wish I could just put my head to a book and absorb the knowledge.

I smell fear.

IMHO, you''re not going to learn anything by looking at that Quake code.

The style is, well, crap. And there are too many optimizations and
hacks all over the place, so I doubt anyone beginning programming can
follow it and know what''s going on.

Get yourself some well-structured, documented code and start
with that.
