Sorry for the assault of new topics, I figure it is better to keep them separate.

I believe the cause of my screen artifacts from this thread http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=83921 is the following

I am performing collision detection on polygon meshes but my problem comes when I try and write the results to a 2D integer array that has been “flattened” I think that I am doing this wrong because it only works when the meshes have the same size.

this is in my kernel function:

const unsigned int tix = blockIdx.x*blockDim.x + threadIdx.x;
const unsigned int tiy = blockIdx.y*blockDim.y + threadIdx.y;

for(i=0;i<3;i++)

{

//get the coords of each vertex for each tri

V0[i] = (float)( m1[9

*tix+i] + t1[i]);*

V1[i] = (float)( m1[9tix+3+i] + t1[i]);

V1[i] = (float)( m1[9

V2[i] = (float)( m1[9*tix+6+i] + t1[i]);

```
U0[i] = (float)( m2[9*tiy+i] + t2[i]);
U1[i] = (float)( m2[9*tiy+3+i] + t2[i]);
U2[i] = (float)( m2[9*tiy+6+i] + t2[i]);
}
```

int result = cudaCollide(V0,V1,V2,U0,U1,U2);

results[s1*tix+tiy] = result; //s1 is the number of triangles in mesh1

anyway it crashes my program if I use 2 different size meshes and gives me strange screen artifacts if I put in meshes that are to big.

I have a hard time diagnosing this problem since it works on meshes that are the same size. and it is getting a little frustrating rebooting every time I try something different because my screen starts melting… I figure the last line is part of the problem because if I comment it out I don’t get the screen artifacts, even though it still crashes.

any ideas are appreciated.

Thanks
