  • While older content will work with the new PhysX libraries without changes, it is recommended to re-Binarize it over time. This will bake the correct version in the P3D files and cost less run-time overhead.
  • Not all documentation yet reflects these changes.
  • In case of any issue, please, let us know on our usual channels: Feedback Tracker or the forums.
  • You can subscribe (for free) to the Tools and Samples packages from the Steam store. Once done, you will find these application in your Steam library (switch the filter to "Tools").
  • You will need to start the primary tool once to add all needed registry entries.
  • The 64-bit Binarize executable is provided without any additional support and has to be manually linked should you want to use it.
  • We recommend you to backup your project files frequently!
