BennuGD Wii RC1+ (mod_chipmunk integrated!)

by josebita
Bennu is a high level open source game development suite which focuses on modularity and portability, making it a perfect choice for cross-platform game development.

Refreshing the BennuGD for Wii binaries with a very nice addition: Chipmunk physics library integration. Just in case you missed earlier posts, mod_chipmunk is a wrapper for BennuGD created by Prg that allows you to unleash the full potential of the Chipmunk physics library with a BennuGD friendly syntax.

The cool thing about this library is that creating a reallistic physics simulation is quite complicated even for those with a clear understanding of what's going on and this library manages all the physic interactions easily and effectively.

Please, understand that physics simulation can be a very processor-intesive process. If your game slows down too much, try reducing the number of active processes.
