Hi, I have a question about Images. Is there a way to make an image trace/follow a line? If so, can you please explain on how to do it? I want know how to make the image trace a line from point A to point B.

Or you meant follow complex line like tower defense, with all of that curves?

direction of line: D=|B-A|
parameterize:  F(t) =Dt+A
where 't' is on [0,1]

brain-dump untested pseudocode:

 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12  13  14  15  16  17  18  19  20  21  22  23  24  25  26  27 public void setup(Vect2f a, Vect2f b){  // store initial point   x0 = a.x;  y1 = a.y;  // compute and store direction of line   dx = b.x-x0;  dy = b.y-y0;  // compute and store length of the line segment  len = (float)(Math.sqrt(dx*dx+dy*dy));  // normalize direction  float t = 1.f/len;  dx *= t;  dy *= t;}/** Set 'r' to the blah, blah and returns 'r'. */public Vect2f position(Vect2f r, float t){  r.x = x0 + t*dx;  r.y = y0 + t*dy;    return r;}

I meant more of, just following a straight line.

Just set the y to a number and never change the y, but every update add to the x of the image.

If you want it to go up add to the y instead of the x.
Sorry if any spelling mistakes I'm on my phone

Never change X -> vertical move.
Never change Y -> horizontal move.

Yeah I think he means any line not just vertical/horiz lines.

Yea, that's what I was asking for. I understand how to make Vert and Horiz lines, just wondering how to make an image follow a line that has a certain amount of degrees to it.
