wow , 20 seconds , that's really amazing !!! I would love to see it , but the ideo codec is giving my player fits . Is there any way you could re-encode wwith Divx , or mpeg1 or xvid ? These are great codec's and are the most popular one's used nowadays . Or maybe Sorenson , which the mod suggests you will have to use to upload you final anim .

Thanks , and looking forward to seeing your treb !

Lookin' good. Finally getting to work building my own hero treb now. Only had time for mini tests before. You need to up the damping value on your Weight rigid body, because it's swinging too long and too crazily right now.

Got the motion working a little better. I sovled some of the crazy rope issues along with some joint friction whiched helped with the over all performance of the throw.

Now to add fire and smoke particles to the projectile.
