PhysicsEditor Loader Extension

Postby StuartTresadern » Mon Dec 09, 2013 8:51 pm

Anyone who has the Physics Editor may find this of some use. I have provided a customer exporter for the Physics Editor and a new extension class for the isogenic engine.

Custom Exporter:

Two files are attached for the custom export, simply create a new folder in the exporter directory and copy the files in, restart the editor if you have it open and the new exporter will be available for selection next time you start it up.

The exporter will process all the parameters set in the editor to the isogenic engine, poly points, Density Restitution, Friction, Is Sensor, Linear and Angular Damping, Sleep, Bullet, Garvitic and Fixed Rotation. It also passes the Group and Category bits but I still have to check them.

PhysicsEditorLoader Extension:

Copy the PhysicsEditorLoader.js to your game classes directory and reference it in your clientConfig.

I normally implement the loader in my main client class but you can implement it in any class you want:

Code: Select all

The exported physics definition file has already been assigned a default variable name of : physicsdef if you only have a single file then you can leave it as is or rename as required.

Next you need to call the loader:

First parameter is the variable assigned to the physics definition file by default this is set to physicsdef.
Second parameter is the path to the physics definition file.
And the third parameter is the callback which passes an array of box2d entities.

Code: Select all
self.loadPhysicsData('warshipsphy','./assets/images/warshipphy.js', function(bodies){

                        for (var i = 0; i < bodies.length;i++){



In the callback do whatever you need to the returned array of IgeEntityBox2d() entities.
