Change in axis's

Recommended Posts

Hello, i am trying be able to move along the x axis using the arrow keys, along with being able to change your angle of view. But once you have rotated to either side, i can no long strafe (if you will) in the relative direction. Is there a way to fix this so that once i rotate 90 degree''s, i will move along the z axis instead of the x?

I think that there is a tutorial of NeHe''s (I believe it was #10) that went over moving in a world. It uses the math that you''ll need to use in yours (basically sin and cos)

Anyways, away from the main problem

I think Americans call it math instead of maths becuase our concept of what it is. To many of us it is a subject instead of a group of objects, for instance we do math and we do history, not maths and histories. It is almost the same as considering a material or substance. I eat chicken, not chickens. Of course, it is actually a shortened form of ''mathematics,'' which does mean a group of objects. But since in common usage, we don''t think of it as a group of subjects, the shortened version was degraded to ''math''.

I had a little time on my hands (for once) so I just thought I''d give you my useless opinion on the matter.
