Moving Platforms with Arrows
« on: January 31, 2020, 04:19:21 PM »
I have used arrow objects to control path of moving platforms. The platform loops back to its
start location and continues further loops.

However, what I've found it that after a while the platforms starts to speed up and go faster and
faster. Why is this happening and what can I do to control the platforms to not speed up?

This has happened for me as long as I've used PB. And I don't know of any way to slow them down. This has caused many issues for me in the past. Thus, I don't use arrows very often.

You are probably placing a lot of arrows unnecesarily. If you add only one, the platform will continue moving until another places in the path or an stop stops it. If you place more than one with the same direction, the speed will increase.
