speaking of said asteroid test,
i am trying to emulate the same type of movement i remember in the old atari game.
all you had to navigate was forward thrust, with left and right rotation controls. the movement was inertial based, so you could thrust forward to increase speed and if you let off the thrust, it would eventually slow down on it's own. not exactly accurate for space physics...lol, but it was cool for the game.
the problem i'm having is that when you're moving forward, the ship should rotate while continuing it's forward momentum. but instead, when i press left or right keys, that i have assigned to rotation, the ship turns in the direction it rotates. not the behavior i expected from 'rotation', and i have not figured out how the fix it.
any takers... http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6707683/construct.../asteroids_test.capx
any help is greatly appreciated...
