love.physics.newWeldJoint

Available since LÖVE 0.8.0
This function is not supported in earlier versions.

Creates a constraint joint between two bodies. A WeldJoint essentially glues two bodies together. The constraint is a bit soft, however, due to Box2D's iterative solver.

O.png Making changes to a World is not allowed inside of the beginContact, endContact, preSolve, and postSolve callback functions, as BOX2D locks the world during these callbacks.  

Function

Synopsis

joint = love.physics.newWeldJoint( body1, body2, x, y, collideConnected )

Arguments

Body body1
The first body to attach to the joint.
Body body2
The second body to attach to the joint.
number x
The x position of the anchor point (world space).
number y
The y position of the anchor point (world space).
boolean collideConnected (false)
Specifies whether the two bodies should collide with each other.

Returns

WeldJoint joint
The new WeldJoint.
