I'm attempting to create a "U" shape (in Cocos2d) by joining 3 rectangles like so: |_|
It sounds like joints are not the correct solution here since I don't want any movement so I have created a main body which is the middle bit and 2 fixtures for the sides. I've added the two sides to the middle bit like this:
This works, however both side fixtures get added to the center of the mainBody. I can't seem to work out how to position the fixtures relative to the main body. Attaching a sprite/node to the fixture and changing the position doesn't seem to make a difference.
