What's weird is the one compiled in the flash IDE runs ever so slightly faster for me, but it's so small (1fps) that it's most probably nothing. Also the flash IDE compiled one randomly the movement for some reason.

There's not any glitches in it that i'm aware of. There is a few things left to add; more constraint types certainly, aswell as some extra general methods for working with things, like the ability to wake constraints, aswell as objects which makes sense, and more callback procedures so that you can handle things like objects leaving the screen, aswell as leaving the world, aswell as stuff for collisions, so that you can assign methods to be called when two objects collide, and when they seperate, and to query how strong a collision was etc. I also need to add constraint breaking so that constraints can be 'broken' automticaly by say, having to apply too much force to keep the constraint, they'll break instead and stuff.

But certainly there should be any major changes which would render anything you used it for out of date in terms of not working any more.

Since I'm in no rush to use a physics engine anyways, I'll just integrate it when all of those features are there.
I'm going to go with your engine and probably add other ones later.

I'm a total sucker for cats and feel awful to see them injured in some way :(
I feel the total opposite for dogs though.

Well, we let my cat outside for a moment yesterday, the moment he'd finished his business he ran as fast his remaining legs could take him and dived under a neighbour's fence. So, he's still the same. Lol.

If we combine your cat and my cat then we have a pirate.

Sponsorship & the IRS
So after my recent sponsorship, my dad has begun to wonder what exactly needs to be done with the money as far as taxes go. He's worrying that I need to get a lawyer and maybe incorporate or something along those lines, but I'm pretty sure he's worrying a bit too much about it.

Either way, it would be nice to know from somebody who has more experience in this subject what I need to do, what must be paid to who or maybe just a general idea (I do live in the US).

Also, I'm not sure if this is worthy of it's own thread but I remember reading on this many many pages back so .. yeah :p

if you made over $600 from an individual company in the tax year, they'll have you fill out a W9 form for them (basically just asking for name addr ssn etc) so they can deduct the money, they'll send you a statement in like january or feburary that you use to do your taxes with.

no need to incorporate right now, that has to do with liability and tax breaks and you aren't making enough for the fees to be worth it

Do you mean that the sponsor would send me a W9 form? Because both of my sponsorships thus far have been over $600 but neither sponsor has mentioned any forms (I just got the money through PayPal and that was that).

the W9 form is standard, they usually email you one but it's exactly the same as the one you get off the IRS site.

USUALLY they ask for it before you get paid. If they have one on record, they don't. If you don't get the statement from them at the beginning of the year, it means they never reported paying you i think. In the last couple years I haven't seen any sponsor (besides some very unprofessional ones) "forget" to do that though.

who's the sponsor?

gamesbutler.com and bunnygames.com. I mean, I got my money just fine but I guess they "forgot" to do that though.. I got sponsored by bunnygames last year, and recently by gamesbutler.. does that mean that bunnygames "forgot" about the W9 form, and perhaps gamesbutler will e-mail me at the beginning of next year? Or they both "forgot"? I'm quite thoroughly confused now.

email them and ask, if they aren't incorporated then I don't know if they NEED one.

I remember armorgames didn't ask me for one until they incorporated

iiii'm guessing something like an intel core 2 or something from a few years back or something?

(see point above on computer killed)

Yeah Intel Pentium Dual-Core running with Vista on a laptop. Bought it in 08 I think. I think it has 2gb of RAM.

Also: While frantically using the mosue-pad to try to lag things up a little I managed to get it down to 14 fps :| That was the lowest I could get it :D

Ok, so let me see if I got this right.

'Normally' when one is sponsored (for let's say $1000) the sponsor would request a W9 form from the author. The author fills out the form, sends it back to the sponsor, sponsor takes out taxes from the $1000 (lets say a total of $50), and then sends the remaining money to the author (total of $950), and the author lives happily ever after without having to worry about taxes?

And if the sponsor is not incorporated, they don't bother with the W9 form and then it's up to the author to pay the taxes?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm just trying to straighten this all out :x

I thought that you were just scott free on the first £6000 you make in the tax year.

And yeah, I hear medical students have plenty of time on their hands for making Flash :p
