I saw what the Nehe news said that there was a memory leak in GameTut#4 and had been eliminated; I''d like take a look at it, but I cannot find in tut or code where the original memory leak is. Anyone knows that? I found a tiny problem about the MD2 animation in GameTut#4. There would be an abnormal "flip" while the model''s repeating "IDLE"(default animation). In MD2::Animate(), if replacing "if(currentFrame==-1 || currentFrame>endFrame)" with "if(currentFrame==-1 || nextFrame>endFrame)", I think it would get rid of the "flip" problem.

I forget the exact variable names but this is the general idea:

There was an allocation of memory in MD2::Load() I believe

somePtr = new someType[someSize];

And it was being deleted in MD2::~MD2()

delete somePtr;

However, whenever you allocate an array of memory, you need to delete the whole array.

delete [] somePtr;

I hope you get the general idea.
