(float)sin(1*180) * Radius = -1 Should it not be 0? .lick

If you''re using floats, use sinf, cosf, tanf, etc rather than sin,cos,tan that way you don''t need the cast to get rid of the warning, sinf, cosf, etc return floats and not doubles .

Thanks both of you, what are these called again?

What are what called? Radians? Or the sin/cos functions?

--- Edit ---

__forceinline float fsin(float Degree){ return sinf(Degree*3.1415/180.0f);}//Now you can just call using degreesret = fsin(1*180);

However, I do recommend just using degrees while working with stuff instead of converting back and forth.

Why use the function when all you have to do is multiply the number by 0.017453292519943295769236907684886? (Although you may want more accuracy in that number which is found by pi/180 if you didnt know..)

The last thing I''d ever want to see in the sin(theta) function call would be a conversion factor of that gibberish you just posted. Talk about making things unnecessarily more complicated.

I''m trying to make a loop where the number of times it loops can vary, and the objects I render are in a circle.

const double Pi2 = 6.28318530717958647692528676655901;for(double t = 0; t < Pi2; t += Pi2/10) {  double x = sin(t)*radius, y = cos(t)*radius;  ... }
