For get acquainted with basic operations please watch  videos.

I can’t make it run on linux?

How to reset Simphy?

Got something wrong with simphy? You can reset application to initial state using menu>>reset.

If menu is not accessible just delete config.properties files from location where simphy is installed, now application will run with default settings.

Simulation is running too slow, why?

Simphy needs graphics card (atleast 512mb) to run at good fps. If it is running slow, make sure graphics drivers are updated. If you do not have graphics drivers please avoid adding images to the simulation as it may make simulation drastically slow.

Simulation may also become slow if there are very large number of objects in it, although for object's count up to few hundreds it should run fine. You should delete unused objects to make it run at proper speed.

You can also decrease step frequency by selecting simulation settings in popup menu opened by right clicking on canvas.

I can’t run my scripts?

Actually scripting feature is in very experimental stage. Not all errors are catched or shown by the interpreter. We are working hard on making them more intuitive.

feel free to visit forum for help related to scripting.

Do I need programming skills to use Simphy?

Absolutely No!

You can create your simulation with just predefined tools which are enough to create almost 90% of simulations. You will need basic javascript to create complex simulations involving user input or automatic object creation.

Kindly create thread about simulation you want to make in forum if you need any assistance.

What kind of skills I need to create something like Simphy?

You need not be a super human to create applications like simphy rather you need good hold on high school mathematics (especially linear algebra and calculus) and high school rigid body mechanics along with atleast two year experience in programming language of your choice.

The author of Simphy has never taken any course in computer science and he could create it, then why can't you?

I want this feature, Is it possible?

Kindly let us know in detail about what you want to see in next version of simphy. Just fill the contact from with feature request and supporting info/links. We would love to add it if feasible.

ETA: When will new version be released?

It is very difficult to predict new update as it not only depends on severe bug encountered in current version or if an important feature is to be added but also on availability of time for the author.
