A 2kg plastic cone has as much friction and mass as a 50kg concrete block which you can "kick" around as easily and it almost "flies" around!

They even move/react/collide the same way which goes to show how simplistic the physics is (like BF2). CoH brutally outdoes it in physics complexity and quality. Compelte annihilation and CoH is quite old game.

I don't think we are gonna see physx used in popular multi player games like that ever.

I do have a gtx 260 that I am using for physx., and other than three titles I currently have its a waste.

I'd agree with bacon and bob. It may not be completely accurate, but most people are just happy to be able to move the tree out of the way. Much better than BF2 where a light pole will stop a tank dead.

Oh man, I am so putting that in my sig.
