Hi Walaber

Your doing a great job, helping people like me be able to use newton
first with DP Pro and now Ogre.

I have a small problem, iv only got Visual Studio 6
is there any way you could create OgreNewt for VS6
i have tryed to convert it, but with out any C++ know how have hade no success.

I would be most greatfull

Keep up the great work :lol:

if there is an easy way to save a VS6 project file from VS7.1, then I'd be glad to do it... but I'm not sure how to do that... :wink:

You should be able to get OgreNewt to compile under VS6 without any problems. Did you try it?

Haven't tried it, and I don't know if it works for VC7.1 projects, but;

i think everything is set up right but i get some error
any one have any ideas , i started compilling OgreNewt_Main
debug then release

So basically there are two errors - one can be fixed by this compiler optiom /Zm and second is caused by this:

Code: Select all
for( int i=0; i<5; i++)
{
}
...
int i;


In VS6 int variable defined in for isn;t internal to for block, but is visible after for too, so 'standalone' int i; declares already declared variable. I don't know if there's method to disable this behaviour in VS6.

Could you release your rigid body editor. I can write/contribute a generic loader for OgreNewt if you wish.

I've been holding off on the Rigid Body Designer tool, because it's still very low on features... however I agrree that it might be useful for Ogre users...

I guess I'll just release the code then... although it's pretty messy :D

<pokes>

<prods>

c'mon...do it ;)

[edit]
btw walaber, you should join the ogre3d irc channel, its fun ;) and we need a resident newton expert there :)

Just wanted to say I'm working on my own wrapper (based on monster's code he released a while ago). Currently developing the ragdollsystem. It's like this at this moment: You create a new instance of NewtOgre::RagdollBone, you assign an Ogre node to it + all the other parameters (do this for all the bones you're going to need). Then you can add them with NewtOgre::Ragdoll's function addBone()/addBones(). Imo this way of working is quite flexible. Any comments :) ?

Debugging with Ogrenewt?

Postby ghefu » Tue Jun 07, 2005 9:49 pm

Hi,

as far a can see there is a Debugger class in ogrenewt using some util functions of newton, how is it to supposed to be used?
It looked to me like i could have the collision body be visible then.
I tried like this:

Code: Select all
OgreNewt::Debugger* debugger = new OgreNewt::Debugger();
debugger->init(mSceneMgr);
debugger->showLines(mWorld);


However, this gives me an error telling me that i can't access a private member(debugger::debugger())... so i looked into the header from OgreNewt (OgreNewt_Tools.h):

Code: Select all
class Debugger
   {
   private:   
      
      Debugger();
      ~Debugger();
      ...


I tried putting construcor and deconstructor into public, but that gives me this error at linker time:
Code: Select all
 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: __thiscall OgreNewt::Debugger::Debugger(void)"


So... was anyone successful using it, or is it the wrong way anyway?
