Class: MatterPhysics

Phaser.Physics.Matter. MatterPhysics

The Phaser Matter plugin provides the ability to use the Matter JS Physics Engine within your Phaser games.

Unlike Arcade Physics, the other physics system provided with Phaser, Matter JS is a full-body physics system. It features:

  • Rigid bodies
  • Compound bodies
  • Composite bodies
  • Concave and convex hulls
  • Physical properties (mass, area, density etc.)
  • Restitution (elastic and inelastic collisions)
  • Collisions (broad-phase, mid-phase and narrow-phase)
  • Stable stacking and resting
  • Conservation of momentum
  • Friction and resistance
  • Constraints
  • Gravity
  • Sleeping and static bodies
  • Rounded corners (chamfering)
  • Views (translate, zoom)
  • Collision queries (raycasting, region tests)
  • Time scaling (slow-mo, speed-up)

Configuration of Matter is handled via the Matter World Config object, which can be passed in either the Phaser Game Config, or Phaser Scene Config. Here is a basic example:

physics: {
    default: 'matter',
    matter: {
        enableSleeping: true,
        gravity: {
            y: 0
        },
        debug: {
            showBody: true,
            showStaticBody: true
        }
    }
}

This class acts as an interface between a Phaser Scene and a single instance of the Matter Engine.

Use it to access the most common Matter features and helper functions.

You can find details, documentation and examples on the Matter JS website: https://brm.io/matter-js/

add :Phaser.Physics.Matter.Factory

An instance of the Matter Factory. This class provides lots of functions for creating a wide variety of physics objects and adds them automatically to the Matter World.

You can use this class to cut-down on the amount of code required in your game, however, use of the Factory is entirely optional and should be seen as a development aid. It's perfectly possible to create and add components to the Matter world without using it.

Methods


alignBody(body, x, y, align)

Aligns a Body, or Matter Game Object, against the given coordinates.

The alignment takes place using the body bounds, which take into consideration things like body scale and rotation.

Although a Body has a position property, it is based on the center of mass for the body, not a dimension based center. This makes aligning bodies difficult, especially if they have rotated or scaled. This method will derive the correct position based on the body bounds and its center of mass offset, in order to align the body with the given coordinate.

For example, if you wanted to align a body so it sat in the bottom-center of the Scene, and the world was 800 x 600 in size:

this.matter.alignBody(body, 400, 600, Phaser.Display.Align.BOTTOM_CENTER);

You pass in 400 for the x coordinate, because that is the center of the world, and 600 for the y coordinate, as that is the base of the world.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
body Phaser.Types.Physics.Matter.MatterBody

The Body to align.

x number

The horizontal position to align the body to.

y number

The vertical position to align the body to.

align integer

containsPoint(body, x, y)

Checks if the vertices of the given body, or an array of bodies, contains the given point, or not.

You can pass in either a single body, or an array of bodies to be checked. This method will return true if any of the bodies in the array contain the point. See the intersectPoint method if you need to get a list of intersecting bodies.

The point should be transformed into the Matter World coordinate system in advance. This happens by default with Input Pointers, but if you wish to use points from another system you may need to transform them before passing them.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
body Phaser.Types.Physics.Matter.MatterBody | Array.<Phaser.Types.Physics.Matter.MatterBody>

The body, or an array of bodies, to check against the point.

x number

The horizontal coordinate of the point.

enableAttractorPlugin()

Enables the Matter Attractors Plugin.

The attractors plugin that makes it easy to apply continual forces on bodies. It's possible to simulate effects such as wind, gravity and magnetism.

https://github.com/liabru/matter-attractors

This method is called automatically if plugins.attractors is set in the Matter World Config. However, you can also call it directly from within your game.

Since: 3.0.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/MatterPhysics.js (Line 489)
Returns:

This Matter Physics instance.

Type
Phaser.Physics.Matter.MatterPhysics

enableCollisionEventsPlugin()

Enables the Matter Collision Events Plugin.

Note that this plugin is enabled by default. So you should only ever need to call this method if you have specifically disabled the plugin in your Matter World Config. You can disable it by setting plugins.collisionevents: false in your Matter World Config.

This plugin triggers three new events on Matter.Body:

  1. onCollide
  2. onCollideEnd
  3. onCollideActive

These events correspond to the Matter.js events collisionStart, collisionActive and collisionEnd, respectively. You can listen to these events via Matter.Events or they will also be emitted from the Matter World.

This plugin also extends Matter.Body with three convenience functions:

Matter.Body.setOnCollide(callback) Matter.Body.setOnCollideEnd(callback) Matter.Body.setOnCollideActive(callback)

You can register event callbacks by providing a function of type (pair: Matter.Pair) => void

https://github.com/dxu/matter-collision-events

If intersection occurs this method will return true and, if provided, invoke the callbacks.

If no bodies are provided for the second parameter the target will check again all bodies in the Matter World.

Note that bodies can only overlap if they are in non-colliding collision groups or categories.

If you provide a processCallback then the two bodies that overlap are sent to it. This callback must return a boolean and is used to allow you to perform additional processing tests before a final outcome is decided. If it returns true then the bodies are finally passed to the overlapCallback, if set.

If you provide an overlapCallback then the matching pairs of overlapping bodies will be sent to it.

Both callbacks have the following signature: function (bodyA, bodyB, collisionInfo) where bodyA is always the target body. The collisionInfo object contains additional data, such as the angle and depth of penetration.

Type
Phaser.Physics.Matter.MatterPhysics

setVelocityY(bodies, y)

Sets just the vertical linear velocity of the physics bodies. The horizontal velocity of the body is unchanged.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
bodies Phaser.Types.Physics.Matter.MatterBody | Array.<Phaser.Types.Physics.Matter.MatterBody>

Either a single Body, or an array of bodies to update. If falsey it will use all bodies in the world.

y number

The vertical linear velocity value.

step( [delta] [, correction])

Manually advances the physics simulation by one iteration.

You can optionally pass in the delta and correction values to be used by Engine.update. If undefined they use the Matter defaults of 60Hz and no correction.

Calling step directly bypasses any checks of enabled or autoUpdate.

It also ignores any custom getDelta functions, as you should be passing the delta value in to this call.

You can adjust the number of iterations that Engine.update performs internally. Use the Scene Matter Physics config object to set the following properties:

positionIterations (defaults to 6) velocityIterations (defaults to 4) constraintIterations (defaults to 2)

Adjusting these values can help performance in certain situations, depending on the physics requirements of your game.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
delta number <optional>
16.666

The delta value.

correction number <optional>
1

Optional delta correction value.
