    There was some other little game a while back that used them too. What was it called again? Something to do with crafting and mining. You probably never heard of it.

    Hey, did you make any progress on this yet?

    It's a bit odd that it would work on Windows 7 but not Windows 8.

    Moving the CoG is basically the same thing as moving the origin of the collision geometry.

    It looks like dGeomSetOffsetPosition(...) is what you would use in ODE to do that.

    Yes, that will probably work to make the box rock, though it might look kind of odd. I've done the same thing with vehicles to make them feel more stable, though that's usually just pushing the CoG...
