Ok let say that I am rotating, moving in circles. Ipress up and I move one way around and I press down and I move the other way around. That is a ship. Now what if I want to keep moving around but at the same time I want my ship to be able to move up, down, left and right? One way is to aply the move rule Up,down,left and right) to the background so the ship look like is moving but that is not what I want. I want the ship to be able to doit.
Is that possible?

    wow mulcahy, I am a fan. Last week when I downloaded the GS and read your interview I went to look for you in the app store and got all your games.

    Back to my problem, can you explain the interpolate a little bit more.
    I am trying to do the two movements at the same time. Like with the Up and Down: move in circle clockwise and counter clockwise and maybe with the W,A,S and D: move up,down,left and right.

    Here's what I would do. Find the chainsaw demo (it shows how to use trig to have one actor circle another). It even shows how to move the center actor (which you can make invisible). This will solve all of your problems for you. Just look in the shared projects. Seriously, it's great! I plan to use it someday for something!
