It's common for Box2D to report multiple contact points during a single iteration of a simulation. This function is use to determine if averaging of all the contact points is enabled.
This function returns
false (default) if the point of contact reported is the first one reported by Box2D (the order is arbitrary). This function returns
true if the point of contact reported is the average of all the contact points.
-- Toggle the averaging if ( physics.getAverageCollisionPositions() ) then physics.setAverageCollisionPositions( false ) else physics.setAverageCollisionPositions( true ) end
