    I am trying to make this fireworks effect in a language called Turing. It has gr predefined procedures like drawdot, drawcircle, drawarc etc. The syntax doesn't matter at all. I would like to know if anyone knows the logic or the basic steps on how to do it. you might want ot look into trignometry and radians of a circle. PLEASE HELP. This is for a school assignment

    Try using a particle system.
    "Can't" and "shouldn't" are two totally separate things.

    All questions should be answered. All answers should be true. That is why I post.

    You get the idea he can't be bothered to learn it so he's telling us we need to learn trignometry and radians to help him. No offence tho, just found it funny , my sense of humour is twisted .

    I say that in confidence because I check his profile and he hasn't posted anything for two years

    The funny thing is that DX has a fireworks demo in its SDK.

    I had a look at the Turing web site, and it doesn't support any kind of components/references.

    loop through radius (from 0 to whatever) and inside that loop, loop through pi*2 (thats 360 degrees in radians) and set the pixels in:
    x= cos(current_degree)*raduis
    y= sin(current_degree)*raduis
    then do some small random so they dont move in a staight line.
    then add gravity...do a search to find out how.
    Check out the FAQ and do a search before you post.

    If he wants it, he'll find it.

    If it is someone else who wants it, he'll probably post the question again.
