Argh, e.normal is backwards!

Postby Frank » Thu Sep 03, 2009 8:02 pm

In case you didn't notice, e.normal will usually point in the opposite direction from the direction it would in Phun. This is a pain. Anyone else wonder if it's a gimmick to make more Algodoo scenes not work in Phun?

Kilinich found out that bug before, in algodoo beta testing. hovewer, devs didn't found a way to reproduce the bug.

it was usually fixed by saving then reloading the scene. :!:

Which is more important? Living up to their word on an August release date, or a bug that only experienced players who use thyme would encounter and therefore can be fixed in a later update?

That's my opinion on it. In time it will be fixed.

Unfortunately though thats worse.

If the bugs gets fixed countless scenes will become redundant again made in the mean time!

Though oddly ive found a scene i made using e.normal works in both... but that may be because im only using 1 segment of e.normal, not both. so i must have been lucky and picked the part thats fine lol
