### Weld joints are buggy on 0.10.2 [SOLVED]

EDIT: It seems it's a 0.10.2 specific bug, not OS-related bug.

I've found a quite peculiar bug that hopefully someone can help me with.

I have a level, made up of a bunch of rectangle bodies, joined by weld joints, and revolute joint in the middle. Weld joints are represented by red wiggly dots made very carefully in Paint .

Here's how it looks before level's physics are turned on:

Here's how it looks like after physics are turned on, on my Windows partition:

Here's how it looks on my Android tablet and my Arch partition:

As you can clearly see, the bodies on the edges collapse for some reason.

That's queer, box2d has no platform-specific code. Can you post a minimal example that reproduces the problem?

Also, can you print the dt's that go into world:update()?

You might be able to fix this by switching to a fixed-update love.run but if that's the case you will probably expose an underlying performance problem in your game.

s-ol.nu /blog  -  p.s-ol.be /st8.lua  -  g.s-ol.be /gtglg /curcur

Code: Select all

print( type(love) )
if false then
baby:hurt(me)
end

That last screenshot looks like the sort of thing that might have happened before reference angle was added to the weld joint constructor. Are you 100% sure these screenshots are all from the same version of Love?

That seems to be the cause. My Linux and Android version of Love was 0.10.2, which I did not notice. Now that I've upgraded Love on my Windows, same bug happens. I'll see if I can reproduce bug with a standalone simple program. Perhaps, it's just my game.

I misunderstood. It's not a bug. It's just that the angle of 0 rad is enforced between two bodies now (default values). Here's how my Weld joint initialization looks like now:

(anchor's positions are repeated, since I connect bodies in one point)

Code: Select all

joint = love.physics.newWeldJoint(bodies[1],bodies[2], x,y,x,y, false, bodies[2]:getAngle()-bodies[1]:getAngle())
Thanks for the tip, airstruck.
