Simple Q - 2D ball to line collision responses and curves

Recommended Posts

I'm currently investigating different methods to handle the simple physics of my next project. It's 2D and will need to be able to have a ball/circle that is able to bounce, roll and have friction against a series of lines that form the game world. Simple enough. The problem is, all of the approaches I've looked at so far fall down when a fast moving ball is moved into a representation of a curve (EG a lot of small lines that make an approximation of a curve). I need to find a system that will react normally while moving along long strsight lines, and one that that will allow the ball to curve around smooth curves easily and at high speeds. I figured pinball would be the best place to start, but I'm having a hard time finding any good articles about pinball collision response systems. Does anyone know any good articles/tutorials/papers that cover this, or perhaps another system that would also work?
