Custom Sprite Problems with Platforms
« on: July 19, 2021, 07:34:10 AM »
I am having problems with my custom sprite with regards to moving platforms.
When the player lands on the platform, it will quickly jump from the display fall/jump sprite to Stand I think very rapidly and will not allow for jump, just some horizontal movement but after 1 or 2 seconds, the character will then fall through the bottom of the platform.
My sprite has 2 fall frames and 1 jump frame, I wonder if more frames are needed?
Also my Duck sprite has 1 frame and when the player ducks, it will not allow for any more movement of any kind and is frozen.
The only way to unfreeze is to use the Guard command, bizarrely.
I wanted to post an image of the sprite lock and flickering but it is impossible to do, hope someone can help...
Otherwise I will be stuck making a platform game without platforms  :'(
This catgirl is sadly on the last of her nine lives...
Time to make it count!

I think I've experienced that on actual Platform Builder. Anyways, UPE is no longer updated and TingThing is kinda inactive recently.
Sorry because my English is not very good because I'm Spanish ;) :P

Whoops, I think I am in the wrong section.

To be clear, this is a question for Platform Builder.

EDIT: I found out it has to do with the bounding box bottom number with the Stand sprite and the Fall sprite.
I managed to get it so the character does not flick between animations and can move, but the player still falls through the platform after 1 second or so.

So you mean one-way platforms?
I had issues with that I think

Is this your issue? https://theplatformbuilder.com/forums/index.php?topic=1924.0

It's like this. There are a few issues really, but I resolved some as you can see.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words... I hope a video is worth a million.

Uh that's really weird! You may wait until TingThing returns to activity.
For now, you might try to explore other stuff until the bug is fixed

Yes, thank you.

I can make lateral moving platforms OK, but can only ride these on the way down now.
The character still slips through the bottom if the platform is rising no matter what I try  :'(

Sorry for that, I don't use moving platforms as much as I could, so I didn't knew about these bugs and I don't know any workarounds.
