I am right now using the high performance counters, and the speed of the agent is 5 m/s
If the distance is larger than 10meters, it is very slowy...

l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS += ((l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fSpeed
/ l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fDist) * m_fElapsedTime);

Way too slooooooow..! But if I multiply it by a factor of 10, it is crazily fast...

The agent stays at some waypoint, stands there for a while, then go to the next waypoint, I don't know why it waits

That solves nicely...



	if(l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS < 1.0f)
        l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS += ((l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fSpeed / l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fDist) * m_fElapsedTime);
            l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vEndPos, l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS));
	        float x = l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vEndPos.x - l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vStartPos.x;
        float z = l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vEndPos.z - l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vStartPos.z;
        float fNewDir = atan2f(-x, -z);                
	         l_transform->setRotation(D3DXVECTOR3(fNewDir, 0.0f, 0.0f));
    // upon reached destination
    else if(l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS > 1.0f)
        l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS = 1.0f;
    // calculate new value,
    // this is the result of either the dest has reached or the character has collided
    // fS is set to 1.0 whenever this is encountered
    else if(l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS == 1.0f)
            // move character
            l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vEndPos    = l_transform->nextWayPoint();
            l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vStartPos    = l_transform->getPosition();
            D3DXVECTOR3 vDist            = l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vEndPos - l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_vStartPos;
            l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fDist            = D3DXVec3Length(&vDist);                                
            // reset
            if (l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fDist > 0.1)
                l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS            = 0.0f;

Why do you divide by distance?

I assume m_fS is the interpolation value to go from startpos to endpos, so you should just do:

l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fS += (l_transform->m_MotionInfo->m_fSpeed * m_fElapsedTime);
