Physics engine not working on Intel mac?

Post by RHD » Fri Mar 27, 2009 9:28 pm

New.

Going through "BSoD/Introduction to the Game Engine/Moving the cube using physics".

It was fine until I got to the physics engine stuff and none of it is working. I have gone through the whole thing about four times now, I'm following the instructions exactly but the ball does nothing.
I do not think the physics engine is working.

Mac OSX 10.5.5 Ltest version of Blender for Intel mac downloaded today.

Also. I'm an artist type, 3DS etc, I just want to demo my art skills. I read somewhere on the Blender site that it was possible to create a simple demo game in Blender without getting too bogged down in programming.

I'm thinking this is wrong.

I don't have much money at the moment but can anyone recommend a reasonably user friendly Game engine that works?

Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the wonderfull world of Blender Game Engine
I don't have a mac so I can't be sure, but I guess that the only problem about that version is the sound?!

The bullet engine have changed a bit for 2.48...are you applying force:1
It's a low setting...Try bigger values ( 50?)

If you don't know how to program Blender is just perfect for you
"Presume nothging" is the old tag line of Blender
Just give it a try
Here you can find dozens of games/demos:

Been trying it. For hours. Can't get halfway through the first tutorial without hitting a wall.

I've gone over and over it and I can't see what I'm doing any different to the instructions.

Thank you. Your suggestion about increasing the values has helped brilliantly!



And thanks for your kind welcome Oto.

It might help experimenting with the physics examples:
