Hi there - can you guys tell me - how can i make the rotation baseon on fps - i need to rotate a dice - and on diferent fps the speed isnt the same. So at 400FPS i need like angle = 1; and at 30fps i need like angle = 8; this is the code that i use to rotate the dice on Z axis MatrixObj.Clear(); Quaternion.Rotatef(m_Angle,0,0,1); Quaternion.CreateMatrix(MatrixObj.matrix);

What you should to is send a delta time to all your modules,
and according to that value calculate movement, rotation etc.

(The delta time is the time since the last frame.)

// angelStep is the degrees to rotate per second

float dt = getTimeSinceLastFrame(); // In seconds
obj.rotate(angelStep * dt);

So something like this:

currentTime
dTime = curentTime - LastTime
Update(dTime)
Render(dTime)
LastTime

angle = 2.0f * dTime - or?
