Is there an eta on that extension? I'm wanting to get excited about it but every extension that has promised to do 3D type stuff has been a letdown. The raycasting extension released recently has potential, but it seems like every extension with potential never gets updated.
Extension Released > People try extension > People are underwhelmed and mention things that could be improved > No further updates to extension > Extension fades into obscurity
That goes for mode 7 - released like 8 years ago and the raycasting extension which was released 9 months ago.

That's pretty much why I found that extension to be useless (and apparently most other people too considering how much I've seen mode 7 used in games). The thing that annoys me about that is that somebody spent time developing that extension but there was no effort to update it or get feedback from actual users. It seems like most click extensions are developed in a closed box with no attempt to see if actual Click users will be able to understand them or put them to use.
I've been messing with the mode 7 object, and it is harder than I thought.
I got a decent mode 7 engine, thanks to hayo! When i started with the movement, thats when it got hard. No matter what I try and make, it seems too choppy.
I finally got past that and am sort of happy with the movement engine, then came collisions...?
I don't understand this at all. I tried adding collisions with the 'real player' and the 'real track' and whatnot, but where the 'real player' is on the track, the 'mode 7' player is in a totally different position, thus making it a bit hard to add collision.
like JustinC said, they need to update it.
Your just jealous that you're not as awesome as me.
