Question about "IsDynamic"


In the sample game of QS engine, when I set the "IsDynamic" property of "WoodenCrate" to true, the position of rendering component will be different from the position of physics component. It means that the ball can across some areas of the "WoodenCrate".
"IsDynamic" refers to the WoodenCratePhysics.xml

Fixed in v0.26

The wooden crate in the demo is already dynamic. I am confused what the exact problem is. The positions between the render and physics positions can differ for up to a single frame if you're running at a fixed framerate, but for longer if you're not at a fixed framerate and your framerate is really high. This is rarely noticeable, you would need to be at either a slow framerate or have a very fast moving dynamic object to notice this.

I want to make the crate fixed and have no physics effect, so I set the "IsDynamic" property to false.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Asset Type="QuickStart.Components.PhysicsComponentDefinition">


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Asset Type="QuickStart.Entities.ComponentDefinition[]">

When I create an entity of type of FixedCrate, the physics bounding is deviated from rendering bounding. Please see the below screenshot.

Ah, ok screenshot says it all. This looks like a bug, not something you've done wrong. I'll look into a fix for this in v0.26, which may come in the next week or so.

I have this fixed internally, I will release the fix with v0.26, which will be within 1-3 days I'm hoping. The problem is that JigLibX creates box physics where the position set is at the corner of the box, and the QuickStart Engine puts render meshes so they're centered at the position that is set. So the center of the render meshes is lining up with a corner of the box physics. The fix is to make sure physics shapes have local transforms so that they'll end up centered at the same position as the render meshes.
