Expanded PhysX Error list

Recent posts to the various Director mailing lists – asked the question what on earth is error -26? The error from the Ageia engine indicates that Creating a convex/concave rigidbody failed. Its thrown by the Ageia PhysX xtra – but when you look at the physics error codes – no such error is listed. So I did some digging and found that there are a handful of errors that didn’t make it into the docs for D11. I’m positing them here so you all can benefit from the added insight.

These are the missing errors.
-7: These properties are not available
-10: Physics World is not valid
-13: Physics World is not valid
-26: Creating a convex/concave rigidbody failed


You’ll find the other errors in the docs in D11 under the physics section. I also thought folks might find useful some notes from a recent presentation on Ageia Physics in Director. Below are images of the slides.
