Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
Why in the hell can't the random number function in XCode work like every other random number function I've used?
I'm writing a game. I need to calculate random numbers every millisecond to calculate deviations from a predefined path. When I used every random number function in the cocoa library, i always get the same numbers no matter when or how I run the app. I've tried making my own random numbers by manipulating the various NSCalendarDate references. I've tried to seed srand() and srandom()with the date, but I always get a improper use of void something or other error. It's really starting to make me angry that I can write complex graphical apps and animations with no problem but a random number generator effectively kicks my butt. Maybe I'm missing something extremely simple.
