So what? What is a 80k more in my exe or 1.7 Mo of shit on my comp? + the time it take to download and intall it?

Neway its just an opinion.. And the true is: If your user need to download something else that is not included in your package to run it its bad.

LOL I think what he means by imo is "in my opinion" meaning how he thinks about it. I don't think there was any negative connotation implied by the word... it is just another acronym like lol jk HTML URL etc.

might just be a translation problem the acronym might mean something different in your language.

jup, imo (or IMO) just means "in my oppinion" (IMHO means in my humble oppinion)

So the result: The not threaded one isn't better thant the threaded one.
The one with frameLimit use only 0 to 2% of my cpu so that okai but the ball do little teleport at regular time...

if the non-threaded one isn't any better (from a cpu usage point of view), then we can be fairly sure it really is your graphics card driver that is busy-waiting on vsync.

could you try to describe this 'teleport' more precisely?

Bah the movement is broken so its in relation with frame / time. Do you draw by elapsed time or frame?

Seem to be by elapsed time.. Maybe its a problem with thread? The app change thread each X second and when the app is in the other thread the application dont render?

I draw by elapsed time/system time. Every game state gets a timestamp containing the system time to which it corresponds, and the renderer interpolates (using the stored velocities but no collisions) from the state it receives to the current system time.

How can it be a problem with threading? Didn't you say it was just as bad without threading? Anyways, I use double buffered state, so the render thread only has to lock the front buffer while render commands are submitted. At the same time the physics thread can continue processing using the back buffer. As soon as it's done with that, it will try to lock the front buffer and swap buffers (a pointer swap), so all in all, the time any thread waits for the other thread should be very short. Not enough to create any visible jumps.

Anyways, I just had an interesting idea for a new pong variant:
Electrostatic Field Pong  8)
What do you think? Worth the effort?

It depends how you do it. I fear it to be too slow or too hard to control.
I think having two electrostatic sources - one at each end of the paddles and nothing between - would give an interesting result.

Edit : I tried to compile nqp but couldn't because I have libboost 1.34.1 and the lock and unlock methods you use in AsyncCallable.cpp are only in the new 1.35.0 version :(
