My actor keeps falling through the floors

Now, first off, this isn't a complete noob with no idea what they are doing, but for some reason, I have recently ran into a problem, I have everything working on my player, life, movement, etc, but he keeps falling through the platforms in my game, I knew the problem and I went to add a collision behaviour to bounce off the platform, and then I went to the properties for the platforms and set its bounciness to 0, but when I play my character doesn't appear on screen, he's the primary layer at the front, he is ticked as visible, but it didn't work, so I went and tested out the exact problem, I soon narrowed it down to whenever I added the collision rule the character would disappear, so I know the problem, but I have no clue what the solution is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    When you start your scene is the hero over-lapping with the platform? because if it is it might be glitching out and launching your hero off the screen. Place your hero a few pixels above the platform. This may not be your problem but thought I'd suggest it anyway.

    Thank you Kyukon, but unfortunately I already tried it, to no avail, having worked with unity before this on 3D games, I very quickly got the point of, if your characters not working, you probably put them in the floor.

    Make sure that your hero is on a layer that is "scrollable".

    Show us a screenshot of your actors and the code, so we can help you better.

    Okay, so, I have tried all suggestions so far, but none seem to work for me, rather than posting code I will just say all my code looks exactly like in this video

    But the PC gamesalad equivalent.

    Does your player have any other collision rules? Or do any other actors have collision rules with your actor?
    I had this happen once, and I mistakenly had a collide rule with the background.
    Good Luck

    It’s not a bug – it’s an undocumented feature
