In AndEngine, many times we create a TextureRegion for our sprite. We can move this region around the scene but when I connect that region to a physics body I end up being able to use either one to move around.

My question is, which one do I move around. Should I use the physics body's position or the Texture?

1) I think this is referenced here, and if not there's a decent community over there to ask. Even a bunch of tutorials/examples documented.

2) If I'm not mistaken I think you should always use transforms/forces to move anything associated with a body to correctly step with the Box2D physics...
