when ever i try to do some cloth effects or some hardfx it dont work:

i want to break up a wall but when the collision effector hits the wall thw whole thing bounces off instead of breaking apart...on the hardfx settings under peice mode its on parts and still doesnt break apart what do i do to break my wall

is the wall aready in pieces, or is it all one polygon mesh?
In order for it to work it has to be prebroken up - like each
brick neds to be its own object.

- Will.

do you mean on a different layer?

on some of the example scenes there is a wall that can be broken up and all the peices are all on one layer.

True, but you will find that the geometry is not connected.
If you highlight a polygon then choose 'select connected' it is probably only a singlebrick that gets highlighted, that's how LW knows where to break the wall.
