Hi Everyone

Recently I have tried to get a Bow and Arrow working in my Grid
I am keen to enable some kind of combat ability
However,  I have found while my scripted Bow and Arrow work fine in Second Life,  the Scripts literally stop short - ie - the arrow stops a meter in front of me.

This is because the Physics of the arrow is unset.  In Fact I find as soon as I attach the Bow and Arrow to my avatar they both become phantom.
I am wondering if ANYONE has a working Bow and Arrow which will do collision damage in Opensim - I have also tryed Myriad Combat goods but these do not work either.
Its this a Bullet Physics problem?

Thank you in advance

I made this video game style 3D fight animation. it's a 360 degree video, so you can rotate the camera even while the video is paused. I am making this arena fight animation series, so I have an excuse to create more fighting actions for my base skeleton.
