Vizproximity questions.

We have been using the physics engine to determine if two objects are touching in static models. Unfortunately a model that we are trying to test for touching objects contains 1.14 million primitives, and our application crashes without any errors/exceptions reported.

Would the vizproximity library be more efficient than using the physics engine?

The vizproximity module uses simple bounding spheres/boxes to detect proximity. If you need fine-grained polygon based collision testing, then the vizproximity module will not be useful in this case. One option would be to create a low-poly version of your objects and use them for the collision tests.

So is there good way to capture the state of the application when it crashes without any debug information?

Not currently. If you monitor the memory usage of the process in task manager, is it nearing a 2GB limit before crashing?
