Is this normal? Elasticity and impulses

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Mar 11, 2013 3:39 pm

I am unaware if this is so, but I'd better ask before filing it as a bug:

I have a circle with impulse applied (0,6) with elasticity 0.2. It jumps ok.

I want to make it bounce more, and thus I increase elasticity to 0.5 and the jump height increases very much.

Is this a standard behavior? I wasn't aware of this case in the previous versions, so I better ask.

You should post a capx and define precisely what's happening and what you would be expecting.

The way you described things, it makes about impossible to provide any help.

As per your request: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/60029808/example.capx

Press space to make the sphere jump.
Then change the ball's elasticity to the default value of 0.2 and spot the difference.

Is this behavior standard?

I think he's saying that adjusting elasticity changes the strength of physics impulses applied to it, whereas it's supposed to only cause it to lose less momentum each time it bounces.grimwolf2013-03-12 15:29:17
