Newton SDL demos updated to 2.16

After several requests and after updating the headers, I decided to release updated sources for the SDL developer demos showcasing some of Newton’s features. Those updated demos (including sources) should be useful to both starters (to see how Newton 2.00 works) and people that already used 1.53, as there haven been some changes.

So the following demos now also have sources for Newton 2.00 : “Demo 01 – Basic demo”, “Demo 02 – Joints” and “Demo 03 – Buoyancy”. The demo for vehicles will be updated as soon as functionality for the vehicle container is added back into the Newton SDK. Due to it’s beta nature, Julio commented those functions out for the last beta release, so they can’t be used right now. The ragdoll demo also will be updated at some point, but the ragdoll interface changed heavily in Newton 2.00 and it’s still subject to changes. And finally the character controller demo won’t be updated, simply because newton now has a built-in character controller, so no more need to code this on your own.

Grab the sources here, get the latest beta headers and download the current beta SDK. Note that you’ll also need SDL and the SDL headers for pascal. I’ve compiled the demos with Lazarus and FPC 2.2.4 and they’re not using anything platform specific. So they should work with windows, linux and maybe even MacOSX.
