Timed action not working properly

Recommended Posts

static FLOAT fLastTime = 0.0f;
    FLOAT fTime = DXUtil_Timer(TIMER_GETABSOLUTETIME);

	if(iResrcAmt>12)
		iResrcAmt=0;

	if(iResrcAmt<12){
		if(fTime - fLastTime > 1.0f){
			iResrcAmt++;
			fLastTime=fTime;
			fTime = DXUtil_Timer(TIMER_GETABSOLUTETIME);
		}
	}

//other code
 
Here''s the source for the DXUtil timer: http://if.dynsite.net/t-pot/program/72_HLSL/dxutil_cpp.html The problem is that the above function only increments the value once, and then it stops. I tried using a while(iResrcAmt<12), but that just froze my program.

from just looking at the if statements in your loop, you deal with iResrcAmt<12 and iResrcAmt>12, but what about when iResrcAmt==12? it isn''t resetting iResrcAmt to 0 once it reaches 12. try doing:

if(iResrcAmt>=12)

That didn''t really seem to do anything. I had that first line in there because it was saying the value of that int was 13447780 even though I already initialised it to zero and didn''t touch it until this function.
