Calculate a point along a lineI have tried to solve this problem for a while now, and I always seem to get the wrong answer. I really need help. #2 20080325 08:33:57
Re: Calculate a point along a lineLet's say that point A is (a,b) and point C is (c,d). Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20130306 08:31:07
Re: Calculate a point along a lineThat was extremely helpful for my game project I am doing, so glad I found this explanation thank you!! :D #4 20130603 10:09:24

Re: Calculate a point along a linehi mathsfailure enables you to work out how far along the line to go. Your calculation of t is correct. Yes, it is correct to deal with the x coordinates and the y coordinates separately like that. So, ..... not so much of a failure after all.
