Bringing up/minimizing pybullet change results

Post by abbast »

Hi - I am fairly new to this community. A thing that I noticed seems so weird to me. I ran my RL algorithm over night while pybullet simulator was minimized and everything was OK. I decided to watch how things going and I brought up/maximized the application, surprisingly I noticed it changes the behavior of my algorithm!!!!
I know it doesn't make sense but I don't know how can I check(prove or disprove) this idea!
Please let me know If you have noticed such a behavior before or if you have any idea why this may happen

Thanks in advance

we probably need more details to help you.

this link will help you provide such details viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11406

suggest you can put some debug "print" statements in your code and paste the results here.

in theory the graphics do not affect the code. there may be an indirect affect re finite computer resources eg catching residual errors (adding up all those 1E-10 might change your code at run time), dynamic memory leaks, threading, RAM usage.
