Strange Inputs when communicating with Processing

So Im trying to send bytes to processing, and for some reason the bytes are coming in at values that should not be there (i.e. potentiometer values are always static/give negative values). Ive tried changing the baud rate, converting the variables, casting, etc, and nothing seems to work. Anybody else have this problem/know what to do about it? Thanks!!!

Can you show us the source code that you're having trouble with?

I actually figured out the problem: I used a Serial.println instead of a Serial.print and the ASCII value of the return was being thrown in. Thanks for the speedy response anyway!!
