From the Forum – Issue #173
Welcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.
Math is important! In this thread, the poster knows two points on a line but wants to calculate points along a circle for which that line is a radius. Several of our brightest developers jumped in with multiple math, code and working examples.
Curves have always challenged developers regardless of platforms. Moving your enemies in a straight line… easy peasy… Moving them in a wave takes a bit more math. This thread contains some great examples on moving objects along a wave.
The poster of this thread noticed that when two physics objects interact, one object that was expected to stay in place had some slight movement. The problem was analyzed and a solution offered.
