    Default I need help with coordinate x y!

    hi guys,
    I am planning a race simulator car and I have a problem to get the x and y coordinates from the graph (or circuit). I explain the problem better.
    If I for example, drawing an arc using the library DRAW2D how do I get all the points in x and y coordinates of that arc?
    Do you have any suggestions? Algorithms, libraries or functions.....

    What are the parameters for drawing the arc? I assume that you have the x&y values for the start and end of the arc. Can the other parameters be used to get the points on the arc?

    Those values with some trigonometry should give you the values you want.
