A free wrapper for Newton Game Dynamics
What is it?
GMNewton is a wrapper. It is a dll that allows GM users access to the powerful and precise physics engine, Newton Game Dynamics
It releases you to focus less on the physics of your 3d world and more on the game play and design.

Where can I get it?
I have it hosted in the following locations:
*Host-a.net: v2.0 v1.0 v0.04 v0.03
download includes everything you need to add physics to your own game
What are some of the key features?
GMNewton already supports these and more!
*Multiple world support
*Creation of dynamic and static bodies
*Convex hull collision generated from model
*Collision tree support for complex concave environments
*Materials interface to define how bodies will interact
*Customize tradeoff between speed and precision
*Freezing/Unfreezing bodies including auto-freeze feature
*Auto-updating bodies for faster simulation speeds
*Ball and socket joints
*Uses Newton 2
*Ultimate 3D compatibility mode
*GMOgre3D compatibility mode
*Breakable hinge joints with limits
What else should I know?
Works in any version of Game Maker that natively supports 3d - comes with gm6 for greater compatability
Coded in C++ using Code::Blocks
This is a wrapper. I did not create Newton Game Dynamics, but rather an interpreter so GM can communicate with it.
The wrapper communicates with NGD beta 2
I am making this in my free time. This is not consistent, so please don\'t expect release dates to be
Uses Gmaker C/c++ Library V. 2 by X-tra fear and score_under for auto-updating
GMNewton is a work in progress, but is easily developed enough to make a decent game with.
I am motivated by response! Please let me know what you think by commenting here and letting me know if you use it in a game!
If you would like to support GMNewton, copy and paste the following into your sig:
What are some games that use GMNewton?
Note: Some of these games use old versions of GMNewton. Please use the link above to add the latest version GMNewton to your own game!
