The confusion came from the fact that my formula has a different setting, that makes tricky to find variations;

I really wanted to make Buffalo variation the default one, so I assigned the number zero to it! But I just forgot

Oh well

In my opinion the very best buffalo is the one that multiplies z and y by a negative number (not positive)

It's not eassy to tune perfectly a variation because many variations are available

By the way the only one that is a Buffalo in xy and xz section is something like

{

double x2 = z.x * z.x;

double y2 = z.y * z.y;

double z2 = z.z * z.z;

double temp = 1.0 - z2 / (x2 + y2);

double newx = (x2 - y2) * temp;

double newy =

**-2.0** * z.x * z.y * temp;

double newz =

**-2.0** * z.z * sqrt(x2 + y2);

z.x = AddCCondit(newx, c.x, j); shr (j,2);

z.y = AddCCondit(newy, c.y, j); shr (j,2);

z.z = AddCCondit(newz, c.z, j);

}

When jj = 010101b = 21d using my convention

This is not true for just any variation, some look great only when all variables are positive

(edit!!! Lied - this particular variant doesn't care of signs

- all good)
