Before reinstalling LW, I'd try trashing Prefs. This is why I try to keep a recent backup of all my Pref files.

I experienced the same thing. There is very little control over what bullet does, and sometimes after a lot of messing around it gets unstable and suddenly you can't add new objects and the dynacaches get corrupted.

I tried editing the lws file by hand to get rid of all mentions of bullet, but it got difficult. After a while I decided to bake some of the elements with MDD and simulate other things later so that I did not loose things that I liked.

BTW to have new elements interact with old baked ones I had to use ClothFX, EditFX to output a motion path to a null for each of the pieces I wanted to interact with and then separate and attach the pieces to those nulls so they could become dynamic objects again. I even had to use an Euler Filter to clean the motions up so they wouldn't do strange things.

Bullet can't use a baked MDD object for dynamics... that's really really sad it made me not sleep for days!

Bullet can't do object replacement either. Using Bullet = losing sleep. :)
