Improved Stacking

Postby Erin Catto » Sun May 18, 2008 9:34 pm

- Contact block solver for improved stacking.
- Simplified contact position solver.
- Predictive contact points for polygons. This might have some issues with restitution.

Check out the vertical stack and pyramid demos. This is a bit slower, but the stability is much higher, so you might be able to increase the time step and/or reduce the iteration count.

Thanks to Dirk Gregorius who collaborated with me on this tech for Box2D_Lite back in 01/07. Hey, I couldn't give you guys all the good stuff at once. :)
