Post news RSS Upgrading the Nvidia PhysX physics engine

A couple of rare crashes inside the Nvidia PhysX 2.8.4 physics engine has forced us to upgrade it. So Heroes & Generals is being retrofitted with the Nvidia PhysX 3.1 physics engine.

Posted by on

Some knots and bolts need refitting as the PhysX 3.1 engine is a totally new API (Application Programming Interface, just so you know).

This upgrade should result in a more stable game-experience, but it also makes our server Linux deployment easier as 3.1 is already compiled for Linux.

And as an extra bonus – PhysX 3.1 also doesn’t require that you install it separately, but it can be installed as a part of the game installation, which makes it a better match for browser-based distribution.
