Re: another new eol question mark topic

jonsykkel, after reading 90% of this topic, I think that you have a great "feeling" and knowledge of programming and elma physics. Just fix anything that you think needs fixing. I agree with you that fixed physics is the way to go.

It's also funny to read your "acrossish" ;D

Re: another new eol question mark topic

Thanks for explanation, jonsykkel. So it seems that the lower limit is actually 80.1 fps and it's just stupid to play with lower fps?

I like the constant fps idea also because it would make automatic levels possible (the bike acts same way every time when you are not pressing anything). Am i right?
