Just install the update over your current version. It includes a new DLL and updated CHM files.

My help files seem to be updated with the corrected commands, but not the new ones also the keywords haven't been updated.

I know the voices aren't real, but they have good ideas!

Mike, not sure if you've read this topic yet, but it goes on about materials reacting with objects using the vehicles commands, it doesn't seem to have any effect.

phy set character controller displacement ID
phy set character controller sharpness ID, value#
phy set character controller extents ID, x#, y#, z#

Examples and further info on these commands will be provided at a later date. For now I just wanted to get them in quickly to give you more control over the character controller.

feature request for later on, a command that can detect when two fluids have hit each other.


Plus just found these commands

phy make rigid body static mesh 2

does not compile at run time

phy make rigid body dynamic mesh 3

react total diffrent to dynamic sphere.


in this demo

eg: trying to get the box inside the cylinder.

There new command phy get rigid body dynamic appears to return a 1 when tested against a kinematic object. I believe the intention of the command is to establish if you're allowed to apply forces to the object or not (as applying forces to static or kinematic objects results in an error) so this command probably doesnt work as intended. Perhaps three commands are required:
phy get rigid body dynamic
phy get rigid body kinematic
phy get rigid body static


Or maybe one command:
phy get rigid body type

That returns:
0 - if the object doesnt exist
1 - static
2 - kinematic
3 - dynamic
For example.

Nice to have the ray cast commands working btw. Being able to apply forces based on kicks etc. to the correct parts of my entites now.

I've upgraded to update 1.01 but the command below isn't recognised:

phy set vehicle brake torque ID, wheel, value#

Am I missing something?

Hey guys what's the deal with these commands that you said were added with the 1.01 update and still (months later) some don't compile? And some of them like phy set vehicle suspension travel seem bugged (in this case, using the 'buggy' vehicle (ironic name =) in the examples, it only runs without crashing on the rear wheels (limbs 5 and 7 on the buggy) if you use it with the front wheels it crashes the program with a GPF).... And it's been several months and still no documentation for the new commands?

Also like I and others have mentioned in other threads, materials don't seem to apply to vehicles, and there is no way to make them drift or powerslide even though you say there is. When vehicles can't drift, they are kind of useless since they just flip over if you turn too sharply when going fast.

Richard Davey? Mike? Please hold up your end of the deal. We all send you our money and we expect a complete and fully functioning product. Lots of it seems great, some of it seems unfinished or buggy, but it also seems like whoever is in charge of the DarkPhysics package is doing the very least rather than his utmost. Can you guys please not ignore this message and give us an idea when to expect the update(s)?

Thanks for listening.

(first thread here)
yes,yes,yes,
a keywords.ini-update would be nice.

Ps,does somebody know how to include the reference directly in the commands-libary (you know,help->commands->core,text,etc....,dark physics)?

PIE!
