I need some help, my senior project is do tomorrow and there are three things I am having a hard time with. Any help/code would be appreciated.

First off, I an having terrible luck with character controls. I can't seem to get how to do FPS controls. When ever I do it I have a problem were the character floats and walks up walls. The Character controller also falls very slow unless I am pushing a direction key in which case it fall at a good speed. I have been messing around with the example code and cant figure it out can any one tell me or better show me how to fix this.

Next I am having a problem were all objects move very slow, I mean it take like a minute for some beryls to fall from a leg to the floor. Is there a way of getting them to fall faster?

And last I need code for a ray casting system that allows me to cast a ray from a gun and tell me what object I am aiming at, I know Neptune figured it out and if he doesn't mind can you let me see your code?

Thanks for any help I can get, as of now there is 13 hours until my project is do and I need this to finish it.

Hi,
I have posted character controls example – in my nvidia entry – thread.

http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=95085&b=32

look for the post on 15th Dec 2006 12:03


Objects Falling slowly - use

phy set gravity x#, y#, z#
By default this is set to 0.0, -9.8, 0.0.

so 1 db point= 1 metre : change to -980 for 1 point = 1 cm or whatever scale you are using


ray casting system - i have never used - sorry

if this has been any help - please post in my nvidia compo thread.

Jimmy, Will try this, you may be saving my life man. If this fixes my problem I just will have one more part, the ray casting, and then I can sleep.
