Missing Collision Node

Postby lpmorin » Tue Aug 15, 2017 4:01 am


V6 Seems to not include the Collision node. Has this been removed? I am trying to create a pong game using id tags as the source of position for the paddles. I would love to use this but It doesn't show up in the interface. If it is a V4.7 feature only, can it be used with the id tags tracker?

I don't think that node would have done exactly what you wanted anyhow... Really, you need to calculate the ball and paddles and write your own code for this... I have never done it, but definitely thought about it a bunch.

You're right, the Collision Node was referring to the Collision Panel, a quite old feature from the beginning of WD, which we didn't implement in V6.
There are several nice ways of doing Pong with ID tags, so that should not be a problem for you :wink:
