Has anyone been messing with this? I've been playing around with it a bit and it seems like cpPolyShapeNew() doesn't like it when you try to create a shape with more than 4 vertices. Does anyone know anything about it? I double checked for ccw winding order and everything, so it wasn't that. I didn't find anything in the docs about it, but then I could have overlooked it... wouldn't be the first time.  :D

Is it convex?

Hmm... Nope. I didn't realize it had to be. I was trying to assign a set of data for a terrain using it. I guess I'll have to use cpSegmentShapeNew() on each line segment. Normally, I use Newton, and it has a function to create a convex hull from a point cloud, so I assumed this was the same thing. ;)


EDIT: Actually, the Newton function creates a "collision tree", which can be concave or convex, but is only used for static collisions, like terrains. cpSegmentShapeNew() seems to be what I was after though.

Has anyone had any luck compiling this lib for linux? If not, does anyone have any idea where we could get the compiled object files? Thanks.  :D
