spikes bug
« on: June 06, 2010, 10:19:32 »
In my levels there is alot of spikes and I've noticed something with them.
When I'm holding something (in this case a bomb) and stand on a 1-tile platform with spikes on both sides of it, jumping high and then landing on same spot on platform results in death.

This is because the physics FiNCK uses are far from perfect (not Nifflas' fault, though he could've used a newer version of the physics extension instead of the old one). When you're holding something and land, there's a slight possibility that the thing you're holding can 'push' you a bit left&right. You can see the same if you pile tiles and jump on the pile - some of the lower ones may move a bit. So in this case the physics decided to bump you a bit to either direction, thus killing you.
