status = COLLISION;
return status;
Since CheckForCollisions loops through all of the balls checking for collisions with
every other ball, it is possible that a collision would be recorded twice. For example, the
i th ball may be found to be colliding with the j th ball, and later the j th ball would also
be found to be colliding with the i th ball. We don't want to record that information twice,
so we use the following function to check if a collision between two particular balls is
already recorded. If so, we skip re-recording the data:
bool CollisionRecordedAlready(int i, int j)
int k;
int b1, b2;
for(k=0; k<NumCollisions; k++)
b1 = Collisions[k].body1;
b2 = Collisions[k].body2;
if( ((b1 == i) && (b2 == j)) ||
((b1 == j) && (b2 == i)) )
return true;
return false;
Checking ball-table collisions is fairly straightforward as well. If 1) a ball is found to be
headed toward the table with some velocity greater than 0 (or some small threshold),
and 2) the ball's vertical position to its center is less than or equal to its radius, then we
record a collision. CheckGroundPlaneCollisions handles this for us:
int CheckGroundPlaneCollisions(pCollision CollisionData, int body1)
Vector tmp;
Vector vel1;
Vector pt1;
Vector Vr;
float Vrn;
Vector n;
int status = NOCOLLISION;
if(Bodies[body1].vPosition.z <= (Bodies[body1].fRadius))
pt1 = Bodies[body1].vPosition;
