Testing Your Installation
In this section we demonstrate how to perform a local run of one of our supplied demos.
Please download the SDK from Hadean Web Portal and install if this has not already been done. Ensure you meet all of the prerequisites for the SDK as listed here Prerequisites. Additional information may be available in the installation instructions.
Running a demo locally
The Aether Engine SDK comes packaged with a basic PhysX demo - it is an optional component installed by default. Ensure that it is not deselected during installation.
Step 1: Make sure Aether Engine virtual machine is running
Step 2: Go to the Physics Demo Folder
Step 3: Open PowerShell inside the Simulation folder
Step 4: Start the simulation
First you need to build the simulation.
Next run the simulation with the command:
Once the simulation is running the client front-end is needed to view the demo. Open the Visual Studio solution in the client folder called TutorialClient.sln
And simply run the client from Visual Studio
More information regarding the Physics demo can be found here
To stop the simulation, go back to the Powershell window and press Control+C and N.
Issue: When connecting the Physics client you receive an error stating that a debug assertion failed.
Cause: The client failed to connect to the simulation either because it was not running or was not yet ready to accept connections.
Resolution: Reattempt connecting the client once the simulation has completed start-up.
