So I'm using the PMO for a game I'm making. You all know how it uses backdrops for collisions, right? Well I was wondering if I could also use actives for obstacles.

The character and bounding box both have a bouncing ball movement set to 0 speed, randomization, etc. So I set >Bounding box overlaps active
+ Bounding box stop
+ Selected object overlaps object (PMO)

And for some reason its not working. Personally I'm pretty stumped here. Any help is greatly appreciated.

 
Rockin' it.

to my knowledge you need to put your collision actives in a group and have the PMO's object collide with the group... i really had trouble with this too to be honest. in fact i havnt actually totally sorted it yet!

Hmmm tried that. Does it have to be a specific group or can it be one of the extra ones that look like trash cans?

 
Rockin' it.

Try something like this (where "active" is your character and "active 2" is the active object that you want to treat as an obstacle).


1) Start of Frame
...(Platform Movement object) : Set object to (active)

2) (Platform Movement object) : Test for obstacle overlap
(Active) is overlapping (Active 2)
...(Platform Movement object) : Selected object overlaps an obstacle

What fojomrtl said is exactly what I'm doing for my Tops the Pig 2 remake, and it works fine.
