Autogeometry on Win / Android

Hi,

I'm interested in getting Autogeometry related features (mainly basic sampler & tilecache) to work on windows & android. My main problems are the ChipmunkAutogeometry and ChipmunkTileCache classes (don't really need the pointcloud & imagesampler), as they are written in obj-c.

I was wondering if anyone else has any experience on trying to get these to work in win environment or if anyone has ported these classes to C or C++ code and has any good advice to offer?

Cheers,
Riku

Oof. So it's something I want to do, and something I plan to do, but I'm not sure when I'll have the time. :-\ There are always too many things to do and not enough time to do them.

Sorry if that is a vague answer.

Ok, thanks for a quick answer. I understand that you must be busy with the upcoming unity version. I'll just try to port the classes to C.

Btw. Will the unity version be c# port running on top of mono or will it use a static library? and if so, can it really run in html5 environment? We have been using chipmunk with unity for a long time now as a lib and it's been great, but it would certainly be nice to be able to build web builds with physics as well :)

It's a native code plugin. Beyond the effort of porting Chipmunk to C#, it would require rewriting most of the C# code we made for the Unity version so it's way more work than we could afford to maintain. :( I think the performance would be up being very poor as well.

Hi,

Here's basic tilecache & simple sampler code converted to C if anyone needs them. I just quickly ported what I needed, so didn't port any image samplers etc... But at least the tilecache implementation could be of use to someone.

What you could do is decompose each tile into concave polygons though. While you can't join loops from adjacent tiles together without potentially recomputing a huge area, you can output concave polygons for individual tiles. This doesn't have a lot of advantages though (I can think of several disadvantages).
