floats and updates serious problem

Recommended Posts

Ok, some of my update routines for frame cycling and movement update used DWORD comming out from a call to "LastTime - timeGetTime()"; but just today I changed all this routins to used FLOATs "(LastTime - timeGetTime())*0.001f) because I''m using another aproach for smooth movement. The problem is that for example: void CBaseSprite::CycleFrame(float* _pfElapsedTime) { if ( (*_pfElapsedTime) >= m_fAnimInterval) { if (FCurrentAnimation->Order == NULL) FFrameNbr++; ... As you can see, every time the elapsed time goes over the frame time interval, the frame is changed; however, when my program is in free running it takes years to change the FFrameNbr property, but if I''m going step by step things work OK. m_fAnimInterval its equal to 0.060f (60 ms), so I''m sure that I''m not comparing against incredible high values, as it looks on free-running. So, What is going on here!!!??????? /\ /__\ C.Z. Hagen
