Arkanoid/Breakout problem

Hi all,

Thanks for helping me on my last thread, which was indeed the issue.. Now I have another, maybe kind of strange problem.

I am still making a Breakout game with farseer and I want the ball to bounce back on a block (inverse Y) when it hits the block. The block must, however, also disappear.

This is a piece of my code (which I think is relevant), the update (in the level):


if (intersect) {
    Config.PhysicsSimulator.Remove(bricks[intersectValues.X, intersectValues.Y].Geom.Body);
    Config.PhysicsSimulator.Remove(bricks[intersectValues.X, intersectValues.Y].Geom);
    bricks[intersectValues.X, intersectValues.Y] = null;
    intersect = false;
    intersectValues = new Point(-1, -1);

for (int i = 0; i < bricks.GetLength(0); i++) {
    for (int j = 0; j < bricks.GetLength(1); j++) {
        if (bricks[i, j] != null) {
            if(AABB.Intersect(ref ball.Geom.AABB, ref bricks[i,j].Geom.AABB)) {
                //Config.PhysicsSimulator.Remove(bricks[i, j].Geom.Body);
                //Config.PhysicsSimulator.Remove(bricks[i, j].Geom);
                intersect = true;
                intersectValues = new Point(i, j);

    bricks[intersectValues.X, intersectValues.Y].Update(gameTime);


Furthermore the brick is set to IsSensor. Now the ball goes right through all the bricks when it collides. Thus where is my problem here?

Kind regards,
