Ok, something VERY weird has happend to the move safely extension.

I was quite happily building and testing my new engine when all of a sudden the Move Safely 2 Extension died!

I am using it to draw a line on screen that a player can walk across and it was working very fine. When i changed the names of some active objects and started adding groups and comments that's when it stopped working. Now even when i create a brand new app it fails. I have even tried to reinstall ext pack 1 which contains Move Safely 2 but this hasn't worked.

Very confused and stuck now!!

Define "died", "stopped working" and "it fails". You mean it doesn't respond to actions, or MMF crashes, or..? Sounds really weird if you've even tried reinstalling it and it still doesn't work.

Yeah it is really weird.

In my game you have to draw a line over obstacles and other such things. Initially in testing this was fine but when i started to tidy things up with groups and comments MMF2 would just hang as soon as you tried to draw the line. I have rebooted my machine reinstalled the extension and tried to setup the line drawing code only in an entirely seperate application. No joy unfortunately!

If I remember correctly the On Safety condition must be present in the collision detection code. I had a similar problem - if you stop the safety without it, MMF just hangs.

This is the code i have:

Start of Frame - add "Line Object" to protection with 1 pixel step
Repeat while Left Mouse Key is pressed - Commence Safety Procedure
On Safety
-Set Line Object XPos to XMouse
-Set Line Object YPos to YMouse
-Paste Line Object into Background as obstacle

That is all the code i have and MMF2 still hangs. I just don't get it

I don't really trust Move safely. I used it before to create a drawing app, when it just decided to stop working and I hadn't even changed anything.

You could use the Surface object for collision detection. There is a small example in its example folder for creating a drawing app with it.
