On test 5, it wasnt the test itself that is causing me problems, though it would have been nice if they had warned me that i should be equipped with the knowledge of calculating linear maps (WTF?!!), so much as it is the flow of it. Im looking at the answer and the flow doesnt make any sense.
Here for those who may have deleted their tutorial patch folder
I rewrote the pre-solution shown in the pdf(pg. 139)before they add in all the random generator stuff.
1. There seems to be output coming from kslider, but seeing as theres nothing going into it and im not clicking on it, where is its output coming from? This troubles me because it seems that the majority of input of this patch is coming from an inactive source.
2. Why did they include a "int 36" box? i dont see what its purpose is supposed to be. More so, why does the pitch of the inactive kslider feed into the "set value without output" input when the value has already been set to 36? Wouldnt it make more sense to put nothing there at all, or at least "int $1"?
3. I remember in the beginning of the tutorial it was mentioned that max does everything in reverse, meaning it will work bottom to top, right to left. If thats so, then wouldnt the linear map calculation be passpct% + 5 * 1.5 - 36?
