bool LockFrameRate(int frame_rate) { static float lastTime = 0.0f; // Get current time in seconds (milliseconds * .001 = seconds) float currentTime = GetTickCount() * 0.001f; // Get the elapsed time by subtracting the current time from the last time // If the desired frame rate amount of seconds has passed -- return true (ie Blit()) if((currentTime - lastTime) > (1.0f / frame_rate)) { // Reset the last time lastTime = currentTime; return true; } return false; } its about double buffering, but i got confuse bout this frame rate. can someone explain me bout it and also what the heck is 0.0f?????

0.0f is the number 0 and the f specifies it''s a float, because I think compilers use double instead of float it not specified

hope that helps
