Why can't I get an object to go faster than ~FPS*2?

Its not very fun when you can fly as fast as your bullets... Glare

Wall of code (example)

This is tested with Farseer, I am not sure if the other engines have this problem or not.

Hi s990we,

First of all, why do you limit your application to 60fps? If you allow more, you will obviously get more physics steps per second!

Other than that there are currently 2 ways of increasing the number of times the physics is updated per frame:

1. Change it in your physics implementation (e.g. Delta.PhysicsEngines.Farseer, needs source code of course):

		#region UpdateSimulation
		/// <summary>
		/// Perform Farseer simulation step.
		/// </summary>
		protected override void UpdateSimulation(float timeStep)
			// Update profiling update time also
			profilingInfo.UpdateTime = farseerPhysicsWorld.UpdateTime;

			if (IsPaused == false)
				// Run 5 time steps with 1/5 time of the frame each 
				for (num=0; num<5; num++)

2. If you don't want to change any physics implementation you can just call


multiple times in your game code (remember that it will be executed once automatically, the more you call the more physics time will pass, so you might need to modify your values as well).

I hope that helps. There also was some code for fixed time steps, but I guess it is commented out because I cannot find it. We still have 17+ physics features planed for v0.9.6+, it is probably in there ..
