three are available in Google Play Store and one in App Store Marcio Valenzuela P is a biochemist who has studied programming as a hobby for over 12 years He is perseverant, autodidactic, and is always looking into the latest technologies Marcio started by picking up ASP back in the early 90's as Chief Web Developer for a consulting firm that developed web applications for private companies He also delved into PHP applications with a MySQL database backend Then, in 2008, he started on his path down iOS and has had experience in developing applications and games for the platform His experience is mostly in business applications where there exists a cloud-based web service to interact with, and more recently, in games created in Cocos2d Marcio is the co-founder of and currently runs a small iOS project called, which programs for companies wishing to enter the iOS platform Marcio is a forum moderator at I would like to acknowledge the time I have taken from raising my son to dedicate to this book I just hope that someday Santiago follows in the programming tradition as it fosters critical skills such as problem-solving and innovation, which is something we share Support files, eBooks, discount offers and more You might want to visit for support files and downloads related to your book Did you know that Packt offers eBook versions of every book published, with PDF and ePub files available?

First we get the vector for the AB line We use another method for this ccpSub(point1, point2); this will subtract points A and B and return a vector representing that line Next, we can get the left and right perpendiculars of that line vector with the ccpPerp(vector) and ccpRPerp(vector) methods respectively But we only need to check one of these Then we get the dot product by using ccpDot(rocketVector, lineNormal) If this is the correct normal, meaning the value for the dot product is a positive one, we can rotate the rocket to point to this normal's direction; so the rocket will be at a 90 degree angle with the line at all times as it rotates This is easy, because we can convert the normal vector to an angle by using the ccpToAngle(vector) method All we need to is apply that angle to the rocket But how fast should the rocket rotate? We'll see how to calculate that next [ 217 ] Vector Calculations with Cocos2d-x Moving from pixel-based speed to angular-based speed When rotating the rocket, we still want to show it moving at the same speed as it was when moving on a straight line, or as close to it as possible How we that? A B Remember that the vector is being used to update the rocket's position in every iteration In the example I gave you, the (5,0) vector is currently adding pixels to the x position of the rocket in every iteration Now let's consider an angular speed If the angular speed were 15 degrees, and we kept rotating the rocket's position by that angle, it would mean the rocket would complete a full circle in 24 iterations, because 360 degrees of a full circle divided by 15 degrees equals 24 But we don't have the correct angle yet, we only have the amount in pixels the rocket moves in every iteration But math can tell us a lot here Math says that the length of a circle is twice the value of Pi, multiplied by the radius of the circle, usually written as 2πr We know the radius of the circle that we want the rocket to describe: it is the length of the line we drew A RADIUS B [ 218 ] Appendix A With that formula we can get the length in pixels of that circle, also known as its circumference Let's say the line has a length of 100 pixels; this would mean the circle about to be described by the rocket has a length (or circumference) of 628.3 pixels (2 * π * 100) With the speed described in the vector (5,0), we can determine how long it would take the rocket to complete that pixel length We don't need this to be absolutely precise (the last iteration will most likely move beyond that total length) but it's good enough for our purposes A A Take circumference of circle Divide by rocket’s vector Find time to complete circle B (5,0) (5,0) (5,0) (5,0) (5,0) (5,0) (5,0) When we have the total number of iterations to complete the length, we can convert that to an angle So if the iteration value is 125, the angle would be 360 degrees divided by 125, that is 2.88 This is the angle required to describe a circle in 125 iterations Now the rocket can change from a pixel-based movement to an angular-based movement without much visual change [ 219 ] B Pop Quiz Answers Chapter
