1:44:25culdevu Q: I'm still not sure I understand the reason why you don't store the "actual" position and smoothly scrolling between tiles, and the "animation" position doing the bouncing? The bouncing should only have to be dealt with during render and can be derived from the "actual" position, and so you don't have to store it anywhere. Am I wrong about that?
