Any easy physics engine you can recommend me?
« on: November 29, 2011, 09:38:20 pm »
Hello,
I wondered, wheather there is already an easy physics engine for 2d game programming. The best would be, if it already integrateds well with SFML.

It don´t have to be an full-featured engine.

It´s enough if it has some basic functionalities like collision detection and gravity.


Thanks in advance and sorry for my english, I´m from Germany ;)

For a simple physics engine you can build your own one, it's not difficult. Although, you can use ODE or Box2D. The last one just easier, but it's implemented in C++.

Thanks for the recommendation. I am going to look at Box2D because I am programming in C++.
I didn´t saw a forum for C++ so I choose the C-Forum.
Is the big help section for C++?

Thanks ;)

Yes, it is :)

I saw there is an engine called Havok, used by proffesional games. I think that it's free for non-comercial games.
