I am in the process of making my very own platform movement and I can't get my dude to land exactly on the platform. He always goes through it a bit. I've tried saying that if the bottom detector is over the backdrop object, it sets my 'y' counter to 0, but that doesn't work, and I tried if the dude is over the backdrop object then set my 'y' counter to 0, but guess what, it doesn't work.

I am using TGF and am doing the platform movement where the player y coordinate is set to itself plus the y counter.

I need help!

if hes set to a bouncing ball, then add the "Player hits background: stop" command. else, use fastloop to quickly reposition him above the platform. im not sure how exactly, but i remember it was mentioned either here or in the articles section a short while ago.

have a small non-colision object
right above the REAL colisionable
object... its not exact but it is
one way to fix the problem.

of course there are better ways, but
this way is just so cool cause i got

Have your "player" as an invisible DOT.
Now "always" position your collision detectors, and the ACTUAL PLAYER ANIMATION(new object) from the dot.
Because you're not positioning objects from the player you shouldn't get the mix-up of 1 pixel...just remember to have the bottom collision detector 1 pixel below the animation of the player or you'll still get that slight overlap.

You should use a fast loop to correct the player. I think i have seen a few examples of it. Tig's has one on his custom movement engine example. (The one with the pig)

I've never had this slight overlap problem...maybe it's because my idea works.

Fastloop is another way to fix it without people noticing.

Kramy - Do your custom movement engines have realistic gravity? Or non changing (No speed up/slowdown).

set your "y" counter to "-1" without the quotes of course.

if the character is overlapping a background the set y position -1

this should push the character up.

but it will look like they are sinking into the ground so you could look into fastloop to make it quicker or copy that event a couple of times.

Mine usually don't have realistic gravity,(because of the game type...stickman quest, etc. ) but it's quite possible to add it.
I usually make my custom movement engines with static movement, controlling everything from events using positioning.(may not be the easiest way, but I enjoy coding, and it takes longer, so it's fun )
If you want I could explain how to add gravity, but it's kind of confusing using my system.
It is highly adjustible however, so it's easy to change gravity from "normal" to "lots" or to "moon" (then again, not as easy as just adjusting some bars on a standard platform movement)

I think it's because I do:
'Every 0;05 seconds:
and floor detector isn't over backdrop object': subtract 1 from 'y' counter.

Now my 'y' maximum is 10, so it could go through the platform by 9 pixels without it noticing and then it will minus 1 to the counter and will still be in the platform.

I have the Algames engine, but I can't figure out why your mouse guy doesn't go through the platform and my fatman dude does.

P.S - I tried the 'set y to -1' method, with little to no success.

just simulate a while loop and in the loop move it up 1 pixel until the object is on top of the background like this

-loop0
+if ground detector is over an obstacle
then
char.y =char.y-1
loop0 for 1 loop

ps. the last action makes the loop continue until the expression is false just like a while loop

The best way is to use fastloop for the movement. Instead of + 10 pixels, use +1 pixel looping (value) times, then say onloop+bottom detector colliding -> stop loop+set value to 0.
This way the player will stop on the loop, and the player will go down 1 pixel at a time, but it will seem like skipping pixels. Then he wont go through the platform
