Dear experts,

I wanted to implement ball physics and as i m newbie, i adapt the code in tutorial
http://adam21.web.officelive.com/Documents/JavaPhysicsTutorial.pdf.

i try to follow that as i much as i can,
but i m not able to apply all physical phenomenon in code, can somebody please tell me, where i m mistaken or i m still doing some silly programming mistake , the balls are moving when i m not calling bounce method and i m unable to avail the bounce method and ball are moving towards left side instead of falling/ending on floor,


Can some body can recommend me some better way or similar way to accomplish this task of applying physics on two ball or more balls ,

here is code ;



using Adobeball




load of thanks
jibby

That's a lot of code to go through -- so I'm not.

But when my program logic doesn't work as I desire it to, I put on my debugging hat and start debugging like crazy. If you haven't already done so, either use a decent debugger or pepper your code with printlns so that you can see why the program is not behaving as it should.

Best of luck.

ok, then can you please shift this thread to "game development" section or most likely place to get answer.

as we can't compile it, or run it, the most likely place is where people enjoy reading --> the library

why you can't compile or run it?

Here is a well working code of the two dimensional ball collision, maybe it can help you.

> Please add this :

all you are doing is wasting our time:

you have this
private MyKeyListener pit;
pit = new MyKeyListener();

now you've (finally, what 10 days?) posted the MyKeyListener class.

so how do you expect to compile/run with these lines
frame.addMouseListener(pit);
frame.addMouseMotionListener(pit);

perhaps you'll put in a better effort at your (at least) 2 cross-posts
