    Advanced Math Object not recommended?

    Why this object is not recommended in the neatwares extensions list?

    http://ext.neatwares.ath.cx/ext/Advanced_Math_Object

    "Used only for compatibility from TGF 1, I Recommend not using in MMF2"?
    In this case, is there any good extension or feature that I'm not aware of, to replace Advanced Math Object?

    hmm.. thnaks Jamie, in this case, where I do find the functions of this object, like "Set decimal offset", get offset, etc?

    all of that was to give TGF1 limited floating point capabilities

    but the advanced math object DOES have some useful things like the distance formula and other assorted functions that aren't built into MMF

    Re: Advanced Math Object not recommended?

    I see. I thought it was because it wasn't working well with MMF2 or something.
    I do have an example here that says,
    Set decimal offset of Advanced Math Object to 10^5
    and then use this value in an expression,

    Alterable Value C( "active1" )*(Sine( "Advanced Math object", Alterable Value A( "active1" ))/1500)+X( "active2" )

    How should I replace these events with actual MMF2 built it functions?

    Thanks xyzzy, it worked! I tried to apply the same structure for the Y value but I got syntax error.

    The first part, X value, was :

    Alterable Value C( "smoke1" )*(Sine( "Advanced Math object", Alterable Value A( "smoke1" ))/1500)+X( "center1" )


    Then you suggested:

    Alterable Value C( "active1" )*(Sin(Alterable Value A( "active1" ))/1500.0)+X( "active2" )


    and it worked!

    The second part was:


    Alterable Value D( "active1" )*(Cosine( "Advanced Math object", Alterable Value A( "active1" ))/12000)+Y( "active2" )

    then I changed based on the structure of the first part:


    Alterable Value D( "active1" )*(Cosine( Alterable Value A( "active1" ))/12000.0)+Y( "active2" )

    but it is getting syntax error.. what is wrong with the expression?

    Cos() instead of Cosine()

    Thanks Dynasoft, I missed that one! I still isn't working as it was with the Advanced Math Object, but maybe is something else.. I'll post the file in the file archive when I'm done with it.. it's a hurricane attempt with particles

    thanks again.
