hi i just recently get a new pc with windows 7,ive installed newest dbp & dp. i got the newest nvidia phys drivers but my program keeps giving me an error that character controller already exists!

i did a test 2 see if a character controller exist in a small program like text "yes" if exists and the program didnt do anything.
is anyone else getting this error???
how do i fix this???

also i cant run the softbody or force field demos,dbp says it doesnt understand the force field commands.
i think i need the latest dark physics commands
plz help someone

check if you've done all of these, if yes then shout and will see if we can work out whats wrong.

plus the cc can only be the same number.

if you post code will be able to see were you may be going wrong.

yes ive done all of those things.

my new pc has windows 7 home premium
dx 11
didnt look up video card but a serious nvidia 3d card
i dont think the problem is my pc at all

also i know the cc can only be 1 number.

here,i made this small prj 2 test if dbp is deleting the character controller & it didnt.every time i clicked controlkey i could still
move the box.

theres another thing,dbp & dark physics works ok except the cc error. but when i install the dp upgrade,dp projects then i get an error that nxcooking.dll is missing from my system.

my main problem thou is that dbp is not deleting my cc. ive been working on my game for about 3 yrs now & it relys heavily on this.
if i cant get this cc error fixed ill either have 2 recode all my players movement,npcs movement!!!!!!
or stop using dbp forever!!!

i hope someone can help

ok i finally got the nxcooking.dll missing error 2 go away.

i think ive narrowed the problem down to this!!!!

i tried 2 run the force field,softbody demos & dbp doesnt recognize these commands.

somehow i need 2 add all of the phy commands into dbp,the compiler or whatever.
would anyone be willing 2 upload there compiler files for dark physics so i can dl it????

if this isnt the problem then i think maybe a windows 7 security feature could be stopping these commands somehow????

a line from a demo they did to show how to use it, are you doing like this in your code.

I can post the whole demo if you think it will help.




with CC just hide the one you got and make a new one, this is the only way as the delete command dose not work and no work around could be found.

You could email Mike and see if he would be willing to fix it.

i will email tgc & ask if they will fix dp 2 work with windows 7 but i highly doubt they will! im giving up on dark physics completely thou,im going 2 go with sparkys collision.i think it has physics also right?? not sure.
anyway ive been rewriting my game 2 take out all my dark physics commands(huggggggee task )believe me!
ive taken out all my players cc commands & i was just testing my game with my player running outside & all of a sudden i get cc error doesnt exist again!!!!! dark physics is verrrry buggy with windows 7!
i forgot 2 mention my pc is 64 bit & i know dbp is 32 bit so ive really been thinking about scrapping dbp & moving 2 like 3dg#
i think there latest version is supported by latest software.im really starting 2 fell dbp is outdated,not supported.i mean it doesnt even use latest dx!!!!
i even thought of going 2 a pc store & letting them downgrade my windows os 2 xp. 2 get my game 2 work right but then i thought no what if my game still doesnt work??
well enough ranting lol
im just going 2 keep using dbp (for now) with a different physics system. any reccomendations on good ones around here (thats not dark physics!!!

Dark DynamiX

Character controller fully implemented and working with example.

Faster than sparkys and developed to a very high standard. There is bound to be the odd issue here and there but it has full support from me.

If you do try it and have any issues then just post on that thread and I will fix asap
