Collision, yet another run. RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK, bounding box/sphere work well but they don't give you any more info on what type of collision of where it happened.  For my ball I came up with the idea to do some path and find every point on the outside of the ball, currently 80 points.  Now, when the collision is detected I run through the points and check to see if any are inside(or on) the plane and if so then I now have an exact point of collision. It works very well for the ball hitting dead on the top but now I have issues when it hits the side. There's the case which it would hit both(corner) and sometimes just one or the other but I can't seem to get it right. Also, any ideas on how to do a response to this?

    I have a 2d Vector for speed and position of both the ball and box.
