Panda PhysX


#341

Hi,

I’m here :ttp://devsupport.ageia.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=1949
I’ve signed
and i don’t find anywhere the 2.8.4.6 SDK…
In the online support>downloads i see:
pdf NVIDIA PhysX SDK EULA
Latest PhysX SDK EULA Rev (7-19-11)
2. pdf NVIDIA PhysX System Software Version 9.10.0513 Release Highlights
3. exe PhysX_8.09.04_AGEIA_PPU_Support_SystemSoftware
Special System Software that provides Support for AGEIA PPU. If you don’t need PPU Support do not install this version of System Software. - Supports AGEIA PhysX processors and software runtimes (no change to PPU driver support). - Supports for NVIDIA PhysX acceleration on all GeForce 8-series, 9-series and 200-series GPUs with a minimum of 256MB dedicated graphics memory. - Experience GPU PhysX acceleration in several full games and demos today by downloading the GeForce Power Pack. - Supports the following NVIDIA PhysX runtime engines: 2.8.1, 2.8.0, 2.7.4, 2.7.3, 2.7.2, 2.7.1, 2.7.0, 2.6.x, 2.5.x, 2.4.x and 2.3.x - Supports NVIDIA PhysX acceleration on GeForce via CUDA 2.0 for SDK versions 2.7.3, 2.7.2, 2.8.0 and 2.8.1 (requires graphics driver v177.81 or later). - The PhysX control panel can be found in the Windows Start Menu under NVIDIA Corporation.
4. exe PhysX_9.10.0513_SystemSoftware
GeForce 400-series, 300-series, 200-series, 100-series, 9-series, and 8-series GPUs (with minimum of 32 cores and a minimum of 256MB dedicated graphics memory)

But nothing else…
Is it normal ?
Thanks,
Greg

It seems this question has been asked a lot, so they (AGEIA/NVIDIA) have placed a FAQ right on the page you have posted (http://devsupport.ageia.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=1949).

Look for “FAQ’s” on this page, then “How to download binaries and tools?”.
I don’t think I could describe it in a better way than in this FAQ.


#343

Ok, thank you for your efforts
i don’t find it, and the FAQ don’t help me. I think they haven’t activate my downloads… i’ve posted the same question on their forum. We’ll see.
Somebody has perhaps another link to ?

#344

Hmmm… the FAQ mentions several steps to follow. Where exactly do you get lost?


#345

“Expand +Download” but nothing about the SDK here


#346

But it does expand from “+Downloads” to “-Downloads”? And there are no items below it, or are there? If so, list them.

Please answer all of my questions.

On the left side, below “Support Downloads”, are you able to expand “+Downloads” to “-Downloads”, and what items do you see listed below “-Downloads”?


#349

Sorry, i can see :

Support Downloads

  • Downloads
  • PhysX Testing Guide

Thats all, no other download !


#350

Ok, then you are looking at the right place, and you have javascript enabled. There should be more items on the same level as “PhysX Testing Guide”, amgong the the download folders for “PhysX SDK 2.8.4”, “PhysX SDK 3.1” and “PhysX SDK 3.2”. Looks like a case for the NVIDIA guys.


#351

ok, thank you. I abandon physics with panda - too difficult to get the good sdk…
bullet seems to be a better alternative.


#352

if u sign into the old support centre “you have to be signed in”.
1.click online support
2.click downloads next toknowledge base.
3.click downloads in left hand bar
4.select version to download.


#353

@Pataua101: thank you,
but look at this :


#354

It looks like you haven’t been granted the appropriate access by NVIDIA. For me, the list under “Downloads” also lists various SDK-related options.


#355

Yes, and since i’ve asked with other identities, and i’ve the same results… probably they don’t want to distribute the old sdk to new users…
if somebody could give me a link for download in PM… it would be very nice.


#356

It is - accoring to the NVIDIA license - not allowed to re-distribute the PhysX SDK.
This is why we require users to download the SDK themselves.
Sorry.


#357

Yes, i know that,but it’s ridiculous in this case, and it’s why i’m talking of PM (i’m not a NIVIA vicious guy, my panda3D account is not new :slight_smile:)


#358

Distribution of the SDK outside the accepted NVIDIA license will not be discussed on these forums.


#359

Hello,

If I use Physx with Panda3d, does my python code is always multiplatform (Linux, windows, mac…) ?


#360

Yes, in theory.
But I don’t know if we still provide builds with PhysX for Linux or OSX. You might have to compile yourself.
