The chipmunk physics extension has got me baffled. Could someone please post an example?

If you installed from the extension and not the updater, you'll find a folder of examples in this folder:
[drive]:\Program Files\Multimedia Fusion 2\Examples\Phizix - Chipmunk Engine
They're quite easy to figure out.

You might also try the Clickteam Support Forum for further help; as far as I know only Dynamite, Chipset, Bloxmaster, and I (the only ones I remember that had good examples) are fairly proficient with the Physics extension. I'm probably wrong, though. (It's almost doubtless that Nifflas would be good at this sort of thing, but I doubt he would have the time and I'm not sure that he uses Chipmunk)

I actually remember Nifflas using Chipmunk for NG, but then switching to another physics extension.

I thought it was the other way around: he was originally going to use Box2D (I think) but switched to the Chipmunk Engine for Night Game.
grao!

He switched to the one with support for motion blur or something (sorry, it was HWA. Read Lookis post below for details). I don't know which one it is though.

What? You probably mean HWA - Using the graphics card (through Direct3D) to render graphics, but I think he used it since the beginning.

Nope, he didn't. Just compare the windmill in the screenshots. Chipmunk doesn't support HWA, but what nifflas is using now does.

That's not motion blurring; it's just better graphics. :V

Rather, it is the antialiasing provided by whatever toolkits the NG is using (on the Wii)

The first screenshot is the old MMF2 version.

I made a really basic tutorial and I helped a lot of people with it. The sad part is I never put it on YouTube so you have to download the video which is 20mb :(

Here's the link to the tutorial:  :D

Good luck!  C)p

From the link, that appears to be game builder. The rest of this thread is MMF, which got derailed into NG.

Actually, it's a tutorial for Multimedia Fusion 2. The website appears to be a community page for sharing and discussing game tutorials and resources, and as far as I can tell, it's centered on MMF2.

You may want to poke around the website for a bit and find out what it's for instead of rushing to your own conclusions. :/

As a matter of fact I downloaded the file after I posted, and then forgot to change it.

Ah, I see.

From Dynamite's tutorial and the examples in the root folder, have you been able to figure out how the Phizix object works, for the most part?
