Hello again!

I have a trouble with a body. I'm developing a game for Wp7, throwing a ball. I throw it with ApplyLinearImpulse and then bounce with the floor correctly, but when I throw it very strong against the floor, the ball like to disappeared, cross the floor.

I think that the mass of them is the solution, I've 1f in mass in the ball and the floor, is this correct?

How can I solve this?

i think it's because the timestep (tunneling). you can solve this by seting the body's IsBullet flag to true (so it haves CCD)

after that it should work

I set IsBullet to true in ball's body and floor's body and it's the same, don't work.

I do this in update method:


world.Step(Math.Min((float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds, (1f / 30f)));


Is correct?

What is CCD?

i don't think you need the min thing (just world.Step( (float)gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds this works fine for me)). but that shouldn't be the problem.

and CCD is continuous collision detection (time of impact; some sort of ray tracing of the body)
