Re: WinRT Managed DLL?

Any idea of if any further progress has been made in the BEPU WinRT space? I'd be interested in contributing, but I'd like to avoid re-doing everything if progress has been made here.Given some of the stuff that's happening with c# Metro XNA development with MonoGame and SunBurn, I think WinRT BEPU ...

Re: Implementing ability to shake items in a box

Whoa! Amazing! I'm not sure you could be anymore specific! I really appreciate your the time you spend to provide this level of detail! I'll try out this approach right now and let you know how it goes. :D

Re: Implementing ability to shake items in a box

It sounds like you might have been using the separated direction of gravity computed from the sensors, but the raw combined data should do the trick for shaking and gravity. Can you clarify what you mean by separated? Right now I am setting gravity to the raw value of the accelerometer, it's just t...

Implementing ability to shake items in a box

I'm looking for some thoughts on how I could implement a new feature in my Windows Phone app HoloPhone3D: http://www.bepu-games.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1405 In my last update, I created a pretty cool interative experience for the 'holographic' items in the box (watch the video in the other th...

HoloPhone3D v1.5 - 3D holograms on Windows Phone using BEPU!

Hey everyone, I'm super excited to announce that I just released Holophone3D v1.5 a unique 3D hologram app for Windows Phone and it leverages the awesomeness that is BEPU - check out the video and press release below. BEPU is utilized at almost every place in the application. Obviously BEPU does all...

Re: Rolling Sphere hanging on edges of boxes at low speed

Makse perfect sense now, I had some code that I used to help ensure that the marble wouldn't get 'stuck' to walls and floors under certain conditions. Your comment clued me in to the fact that it was that code that was creating the strange behavior I was seeing. Instead, I can just use IsAlwaysActiv...

Re: Rolling Sphere hanging on edges of boxes at low speed

Now that I have fixed my collision issue, there is one other behavior I would like some advice on. I have an accelerometer based marble maze and when the phone is held at a constant angle, the ball starts slwoly rolling on a flat surface and once it hits a certain speed it seems like it 'breaks' fre...

Re: Rolling Sphere hanging on edges of boxes at low speed

Everything is a BEPU primative (Sphere and Box) that are simply aligned with meshes for rendering. Indeed, I do have a small scene (kinda a strange artifact of a few things) currently the radius of the sphere is .08 :( Given where I'm at in my release phase, this isn't something that is easily fixab...

Rolling Sphere hanging on edges of boxes at low speed

I have a rolling sphere that at low speeds is getting hung up on the edges of two aligned boxes in space. The boxes are perfectly aligned in the Z dimension, which is the plane that the ball is rolling on. If the ball has enough momentum it will simply roll over the edge, but since this is a marble ...

Re: Using user input to drive a ballSocket + angular motor

Wow. Fantastic data! That's exactly what I needed. I"m sure if you compiled all your responses into a wiki, you'd have some incredibly detailed documentation. :D

Re: Using user input to drive a ballSocket + angular motor

Thanks for the investigation and quick reply (on a Sunday no less...) very much appreciated. I played around with the box size, mass, stiffness and damping constants a bit more and I've gotten the simulation to look just how I want - overall it's working great now. I also spent some time (when writi...

Re: Using user input to drive a ballSocket + angular motor

Actually looks like I was using the older 16.0. I just updated to 16.2 and it acutally looks a bit better, but still pretty oscillating (and it appears to be have increasing energy as well). Thanks a bunch for looking into this. I'm really glad to hear that it sounds like my scenario can work. :)

Using user input to drive a ballSocket + angular motor

I'm trying to create a motorized armiture that is closely synchronized with user input. I have something that kind of works (Ball socket + angular motor), but it's crazy springy, just bouncing everywhere. I tried to play with the damping settings, but that just seemed to make everything really slow ...
