Im creating a man in opengl and i need him to run, what I want to do is on pressing a keypad or button, make the man run and just loop until the button is released.
I would be grateful if anyone can help.

Hi, you have to decompose the articulations of the man (arm, leg ...) and you have to link those articulations. Have you seen the arm robot exemple ?? (it's a linux exemple i think). If you could see it, it will help you.

It's not difficult but i think you are going to spend few days to do it http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Running is one of the harder things to animate, so I hope he isn't looking for realistic movement, otherwise he'll have a lot of work ahead of him.
