Hi Phil,

You have to roll your own. I believe there is an example doing this in
Craig's Gnomon DVD and likely other places too. I haven't used DOPs
for a while but basically, you add your own piece of data that has an
expression that sees if the Impacts field exists (i.e. an impact is
taking place) and adds 1 to a variable. I remain surprised this isn't
available automatically like $NUMHITS in POPs, it seems like a pretty
obvious thing to have all the time.

I know that there is an Impacts section which appears/disappears upon collision; however I want something that records if an object has initially impacted regardless of if it then going on to bounce around a bit.
