comment How do I scale a motion capture animation?
@Korchkidu: Yeah, that’s why I qualified the hell out of it. :) A treadmill would be their best bet, I think.

@Asakeron: You’re right. I had forgotten about that. Been a while since I’ve used SDL actively.

comment Problem trying to lock framerate at 60 FPS
@shad0w: If you try to limit the frame rate to 60 fps, and you start taking longer than 1/60 s to render, then your frame rate will start to be divided by the number of frames it takes to render the scene: 30fps, 20fps, 15fps, and so on. Whereas, if you render/update based on how fast the game is actually running, the frame rate degrades much more gracefully. You do this by recording the time it takes to render the scene (dt), then advancing the scene by that amount, e.g., position += velocity * dt.

comment Send regular keyboard samples OR keyboard state changes over network
+1 This is basically how streaming video codecs do it, with complete keyframes at certain intervals and the rest delta-encoded. Of course, that case is mainly to support seeking, but the principle is the same.

comment Optimizing gravity calculations
I recommend using fixed-point numbers as well, if that’s possible within your system—you’d essentially be trading range for speed.
