What kind of game is it?

If it's a platformer, with gravity (i.e the player falls until it hits an obstacle) then if there's no continuing obstacle when you leave the frame, the character will continue to drop.

It may be a position bug, you might have it setting a large (or negative) X or Y value accidentally. Search through your code for that or an extra "destroy" event.

You also have the ever-important "handle background collisions outside of window" checked for the frame, correct?

This may be one of those share-your-code-so-others-can-look situations... I hate those, because I'm paranoid that someone will steal my stuff... Maybe you could even just send an already-compiled version, it may be something we can detect at runtime.

Uncheck the "destroy if too far from screen" checkbox and inactivate if too far from the screen thingy.

I think maybe he fell off the frame or something. Go upload your code somewhere so we can see what it does

Oh, BTW, try to use proper spelling and grammar. That might work for SMS, but it's seriously going hurt you on the Internet (here)

Wow! I am WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! too lazy to make these huge engines. Thats why I use
extensions. But if i used an extension, it wouldnt be as good as this platform movement. Great job!
