This Applet provides a basic simulation of the physics of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It was created by Cathy J. Fitzpatrick in January 2009 and is based on what was known about Brawl mechanics at that time. As such, it may not be completely accurate, but it does provide an approximation of the physics.
The theory behind the physics simulated by this program comes from the following two articles:

You can try the Applet in your browser right now.
How to compile and run your own copy of the Applet
- You will need a JDK to compile the program, such as OpenJDK.
- Apache Ant is used to build the program.
There are NetBeans project files in the repository. However, NetBeans is not required to build or use the program.
Build the Applet
Change into the directory where you cloned the repository and try
If the build succeeds, the output will end with something like this:
BUILD SUCCESSFUL Total time: 3 seconds
After building the program, a
dist directory has been created which contains
dist/BrawlDynamics.jar (the program itself) and
dist/lib/swing-layout-1.0.4.jar (a standard library used by the program).
Embed the Applet in a web page
You can embed the Applet in a web page with the following HTML snippet:
<object type="application/x-java-applet" width="494" height="440"> <param name="code" value="dynamics.SimulationApplet" /> <param name="archive" value="dist/BrawlDynamics.jar" /> This Applet requires a Java browser plugin. </object>
Note that the file
dist/lib/swing-layout-1.0.4.jar must be present for this
to work, even though it is not mentioned by name in the HTML code.
