### Re: btCompoundShape problem?

if the problem is in the drawing: I've recently updated my local bullet with a child-drawing function myself and it seems to work (tested only locally and with forklift demo) http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/7682/7tog.png if (colObj->getCollisionShape()->isCompound() ) { btCompoundShape * compound...

### Re: The equations Bullet Physics uses for solving physics sy

f = m * a On a more serious note, you will simply have to dig through the manual, wiki and source code. Bullet uses a number of different narrowphase solvers if I'm not mistaking. Bullet consists (among others) out of BulletCollision for the collision detection and BulletDynamics/BulletSoftBody for ...

### Compound Objects: Get colliding child-shape's userdata.

Hi All, I have a compound shape with a bunch of child shapes, for each child-shape I also attach a small user data object containing some specific data for that child shape. As an (simplified..) example , imagine a compound shape made out of 4 tiles. Each tiles has some user data value giving a cert...

### Re: Randomization (repeatability)

Yes, it is deterministic (ie, given the same situation and input you should get the same result)

To randomize it, just randomize the input, in this case the forces applied to the dice

### Re: convex hull collision shape is larger than model

Nope, that has nothing to do with the scaling. Internally (in Bullet) but rather how osgBullet converts a bullet cylinder. In osgNodeFromBtCollisionShape( const btCylinderShape * btCylinder, const btTransform& trans ) the detail ratio is set to .2f You can change this to have the debug osg node more...

### Re: convex hull collision shape is larger than model

the orientation is wrong because in your case you did not set it to suit your needs. OSGBCOLLISION_EXPORT btCylinderShape* btCylinderCollisionShapeFromOSG( osg::Node* node, AXIS axis=Y ); from the osgb collisionShapes. Just adjust the last parameter to X or Z instead of the default Y axis it takes. ...

### Re: convex hull collision shape is larger than model

use the halfextend of your cylinder collision shape to create a bullet cylinder. ie: btCollisionShape * myCollisionShape = new btCylinderShape(osgbCollision::btCylinderCollisionShapeFromOSG( yourOsgCylinder)->getHalfExtentsWithoutMargin()); assuming your osg cylinder is the trimesh as shown in the p...

### Re: Stability issue with btBvhTriangleMeshShape

I've had some trouble with rapidly shifting contact points myself as well. Perhaps it is a good idea for you guys to submit a patch in the Bullet Issue list so Erwin can have a look at it and (if it pans out to be a good patch that doesn't break other things ;-) implement it for a new bullet version...

### Re: General and building questions

those are warnings, you can ignore them unless they are relevant to your project. You'll find the headers in the bullet/src dir for a regular build environment and the libs in the bullet/lib dir. If you make an install, the structure becomes slightly different and you will end up with a bullet_insta...

### Re: Ghost Objects or Rigib Bodies?

ghost objects retain their own contact manifold, whereas non-ghost objects have their contact information in the default contact manifold.

### Re: General tip #1

Objects that are relatively vastly different in scale are best avoided.

So modeling an entire planet and then other objects on or near the planet that can collide with each other is generally a bad idea. Either the planet would be too big or the other objects too small.

### Re: Ghost object internal bodies

you could do axis-aligned ray test from the object outwards. so 6 ray tests in +/- x, y, z. If all return the sphere as the first object encountered that it would be fairly safe to assume the object is enclosed in the sphere. Alternatively: Once an initial collision with the sphere happens, keep a r...

### Re: Soft body module virtual methods

Well, it is open source, so you can just modify it yourself. And if you feel like your changes are "production-value" (and you feel like sharing) you can submit them as patch proposal to the trunk. I also have some personal changes made to bullet which are application specific (minor things) that ha...

Nice release, looking forward to the full GPU implementation come 3.x!

On another note; will the GDC presentation be upped to the bullet download area soon-ish as well?

Cheers!

### Re: Bullet on the cloud?

the whole premise of dead-reckoning is that the client only gets position (1st grade), direction+ velocity (2nd grade) or direction + acceleration(3rd grade). On the server you run the actual physics engine + a copy of the client. Starting a simulation the objects are at the same positions. Somethin...
