You lost one point for lack of controlability,,However my boss is gonna kill me when he catches me playing with this at work..LOL very cool Idea...

Suggestions on improving the controlability is indeed needed. I tried my best with the given functionality in DX2.1. If there is anything I missed, let me know.

Is that your boss peeking over your cube there?

Slightly hard to control, but I have a idea.

Use other keys like 'W' and 'S' to control speed and it could be bit easier to control.

Hmmm. The main problem with the car is that in DX2.1 you cannot have both key events down and up. If that was possible, this whole thing would be vastly improved. (Admins: *wink* *wink*)

Thanks for the suggestion XX.

Nice object. I hope you don't mind but i re-edited to enable it to work on all multi-monitor setups. The relevant code is:

Dim Top
Dim Left
Top = Object.Top + speed * sin(moveDirection * PI / 180)
Left = Object.Left + speed * cos(moveDirection * PI / 180)
If Top System.VScreenTop + System.VScreenHeight - 105 Then
Top = System.VScreenTop + System.VScreenHeight - 105
End If
If Left System.VScreenLeft + System.VScreenWidth - 105 Then
Left = System.VScreenLeft + System.VScreenWidth - 105
End If
Object.Top = Top
Object.Left = Left

I have no idea if that will look like code when the comment system displays it. I couldn't find your email or I'd of sent via that.

As you see, it's lost some things due to the greater and less than symbols. Feel free to email me at jerry@baconsandwich.org and I'll mail it over.

hello world test

I see what you did. My multi monitors are setup side by side and I didn't know what the values are like once the monitors are on top of eachother. Thanks for the edit.

Very cool and now I wish I had a bigger monitor.
