How to do Physics Rollback (with Physix)

Dear all,

I want to write my own networking layer for a phyisics game, but I don't think Physix is deterministic enough.
In my experiments with rollback the outcome is different everytime.
Are there good alternatives? I know Unity Physics with ECS would be suitable but I can't stand ECS in it's current state (undocumented).
Bullet is a good deterministic stateless engine but there is no up-to-date Unity implementation for it.
Any ideas?

kind regards

No matter which physics engine you use, if you use floats it will not be deterministic across all machines.

You are right that PhysX is not deterministic but there is an enhanced determinism mode which can allow PhysX to be deterministic on the same machine under certain circumstances. This will not be the case though if you do a manual rollback.

The question I'd ask is if you really need full determinism. Most games which use a client side prediction and rollback model don't do that. Usually their prediction is accurate enough even if it is non deterministic and they let themselves get corrected by the server.
