    Is it just me or whas the meqon demos a bit buggy?

    I managed to get the driver of the jeep thrown out of the jeep, and could still drive the jeep...

    3d-person game-example: walking over some chairs sent me flying 10 meters up in the air...

    No "biggies", but at a lot of times it just didnt behave as expected... hmm...
