    Hi in my patch i have two things occurring:
    1) the generation of a particle system ( when banged and,
    2) object waiting for collisions
    I thought by attaching a jit.phys.body to the then I would have enabled physics properties to the particles (what I did for the Clearly I was wrong. Can you explain why and how to make the particles follow the physics laws?

      the object for particle systems with physics is phys.multiple.
      you can route the position output to a, instead of as demonstrated in the help file.
      however, you must decide if the particles positions are controlled by your jit.gen based particle simulation, or by the physics simulation.
      one way of combining these two simulations is to use jit.gen to create a force vector matrix for each of the particles.
      check out the the physics patch-a-days for some ideas of how to do this.
      specifically day 5 and day 6 patches:

      Thank you...i will try it :)
