This is an old prototype of some simple ragdoll physics, using springs. However, the control scheme is a new experiment in more natural human movement.

Click the window to give it keyboard focus. Then use the arrow keys to move the stick figure around.

left - rotate head left
right - rotate head right
up - raise arms
down - spread legs

Press the escape key to switch between a simple and complex display.

For slow motion, hold down the space bar.

With practice, there are a lot of cool moves you can do. Start by doing cartwheels side to side on the ground. See how high you can jump! You can also try experimenting with different physics settings - like zero gravity? Try to find the settings that will let you do a wall flip!

Thanks. :) Did you have any specific ideas for games? I'm open to suggestions.

I'm also trying to think of how this could work on an iPhone, with just tapping and swiping, instead of arrow keys...

It's hard to control at first, but when I 'got a feel' for it, he started rolling and jumping all over the place. It was awesome.

I figured out some cool, but basic, moves you can do.
(all require you to set all meters at lowest possible, without being zero, except speed, which should be at max)

-jump.
get the ragdoll to stand on its feet. press up.

-high jump.
in standing position, hold down until the ragdoll is settled. release down.

-super high jump.
do the same as the high jump, but when you release, press the up key immediately. makes it almost to the top!

-neck break.
stand next to a wall. press the key in the direction of the wall. i lol'd.

-wall flips.
do the neck break, then quickly press the key away form the wall. with practice, you can do a wall flip, deflect off the opposing wall, and then land on your feet. (the slo-mo button is your best friend here.)

--P.S.
the slow motion button is very helpful for these tricks. with, at the very least, the settings needed for these moves, the slow motion actually changes the ragdoll mechanics, and is the only way to get yourself to stand. also, experimant, come up with your own moves, and your own settings.

axcho Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2008
Cool, thanks for explaining all those moves. I tried them out. B-)

My usual settings are gravity and speed at medium (the default) and drag and flex at one click above zero. Good for cartwheels and kicks.
