ODE is a physics Library used in commercial games like "Soeldner - Secret Wars", "BloodRayne 2", "Xpand Rally", "Hellforces", "Amsterdam Taxi Madness", "ATV", "Elite Heli Squad", "Manhattan Chase", "Pedal to the Medal", "Shanghai Street Racer" and "Taxi3". Also Open-Source libraries like the CrystalSpace engine (where an AmigaOS 4 port is since some time in the works, with no release date announced) are using ODE. Licence: You can choose between BSD and LGPL, whatever you prefer. This model of licencing enables both commercial companies and "strictly minded" opensource people to use ODE. IMHO it is the best licence-model, as the past of ODE proved. Both OpenSource and Commercial people contributed source-code to ODE (yes, source from commercial games was contributed) in the past. So what is "Physics Simulation" ? This is about the 100% (well, sort of :-) ) simulation of a realistic physics environment in computer games or demos. ODE offers you such a environment, and you can very easy model your physics environment and have things happening... Maybe someone would write a graphics demo using ODE ? :-) And now, what is "Opcode". Opcode is a specific Collision-Library which is used by the Trimesh-enabled version of ODE. Now in the "basic" version ODE simulates RigidBodies as "simplified" objects (cubes, spheres,...). For a game sometimes you need a more exact simulation of the form. A TriMesh basically can simulate ANY FORM. And Opcode is needed for the TriMesh code of ODE. Both libraries will be compiled together, using config/user-settings you can select if you want to use the Trimesh/Opcode or not. Please note that I did not port all of the demo-programs, this archive only includes the library itselves, one of the "official" demos, and one additional demo. Both demos are ASCII-only and only interesting for developers. Actually one of the demos gives a "FAIL" at one place, but this is probably related to the demo-source, as the same FAIL happens on other platforms where I tried (Linux, Windows) too. Both the opcode/trimesh-including and the non-including version are available precompiled for newlib in the lib-directory. The code should compile fine for clib2 as well, though.
