Arcball control and Arcball Paper

Recommended Posts

I''m trying to implement Shoemaker''s Arcball Control for a personal GUI system I''m using for my thesis... This site contains an explication, but its in Word 4.0 format Does anyone know of a good explication, or even a OO implementation of the arcball control, that I can drop into my GUI system? Can anyone translate this archic form of Word to RTF, and post it for me? Office 2000 doesn''t seem to be able to translate it... Thank you for your time.

WinZip and BinHex both HQx''s, so that isn''t the real problem,

the real problem is just getting MS Word to open it...

I tried to use the converter pack on msdn, but even that didn''t help...

Yes, but I''ve got an older version of WinAce, which has very shaky support for HQX. Otherwise, I''ve got several versions of Word that I could try it on... wish I could help.

Actually, I can''t do it without a MAC emulator...

The BinHexed files are both self-extracting executables containing the files in question, but they''re MacOS executables. I doubt there are any easy-to-configure MAC emulators out there, so here I stop... but here I announce, so others may go the extra step, if they can.

Sorry I can''t help more...

I got it and I threw it up on my website, if anyone else wants it...

Stuffit works on it, translates it perfectly...

This is my 400th post! Sooner or later, I'll be an important GameDev.net poster!
