Any idea what could be causing the bugs?
I'm using tiles as the floor but they're flush so i don't know whats causing it.
Cheers,FM.

    That game looks AWESOME!!!!! I WANT IT NOW!!!! but back on topic...um i think the 1 pixel gap is being caused by the fact that your dirt seems to stick out more than the grass in the video.. otherwise it could be do to how you are deciding to stop from going through the wall... I would love to see the code and i might be able to help more...

    I got nothing for the second one yet... il keep thinking

    Thanks for the compliment,cfd.
    Sadly, the grass is part of the block.
    However, the bug doesn't occur for dirt blocks. (same block but without the grass top)
    those are separate actors,btw. (grass/dirt)

    kk.... double check your code and also your placement on the actual level itself... I have had this problem before...
  • FrazzleFrazzle Posts: 223Member
    Just had an idea!
    I could just create the levels without grass blocks and add grass block images onto separate dirt blocks...
  • crazyfishdevcrazyfishdev Posts: 283Member
    bingo!!!! that would work great!

    Nevermind, cfd, you're spot on.
    never realised that when i place a block into the scene it annoyingly push the block up 1 pixel.

    It seems to be working now.......

    haha np :) gs has some fun little tricks up her sleeves
  • FrazzleFrazzle Posts: 223Member
    Aarrghhh! The problems back!
    Perhaps i should go with plan a (all Dirt blocks) if gs is being a b***h.
  • crazyfishdevcrazyfishdev Posts: 283Member
    yea thats what i would do

    (Love how this thread is more of a conversation between us 2 :))
    Anyway, seems to be fixed! Appears that one of the dirt blocks (below the apparent grass block) was half a pixel (?) too high.

    Thanks for the help,FM.

    Even though the blocks//platforms are on the same Y if your hero has a rectangle collision it might still snag.

    I always have the actor set to a circle for platform games this way it will roll over the gaps.

    yep its what Darren said... its because your actor is a rectangle... make him a circle, the getting stuck problem will go... or also use tiling and one big actor, which ever suits you better but i think it'l be easier if you just made him a circle.
