##### platform collision question.
« on: June 10, 2010, 02:15:19 pm »
For the platform, if the character is at the edge of the tile (kinda like a cliff) standing on 1 pixel, do you make the character fall, or let it stay on the block?
It would seem unrealistic if it doesn't fall, but if it just falls, then it looks like it's going through the solid block...

Like, for example,
OOO
OOO
OOOOO
O
OO OO
XXXXX
XXXXX
XXXXX
XXXXX
XXXXX

You could just push the character off. Your choice. I have noticed how unrealistic it can be (every mario game I've ever played), but it may also be easier. At any rate, do move the character over if you plan to let it fall. Good luck with your game!

yeah, I was thinking of moving them over, because if I don't, it will be like he's going through a solid block

Hopefully it won't be too hard to implement them

Well if you're implementing physics into this (similar to the one Sir made for HL2) where you kinda skid when you stop moving that could kinda fix it so it is less likely you'll stop like that and just go over. I don't know if that is what you want. I think it'd be fine either way.

Yeah I wanted to implement realistic physics into this. But what if a player tries to make this happen? Do I let the character stand or make him fall?

I guess I'll just have to try them both to see which one is better

I think I'd personally let him stand, but it's your decision.

i think you should just let him stand. it may be more realistic to just push him over the edge, but i'd be pretty pissed off as a player if i had the game's physics well-known, and then i jump to another blocking thinking i'll make it by 1-2 pixels, my character's foot touches the block, but then he's scooted back and falls down.

Or how about this? For X amount of time that he happens to stand in the edge, he looks like he's falling. After this X amount of time, he falls unless he moves back.

You could always display an "unbalanced" sprite or something (then maybe push him off after a couple seconds)

i think calc84 and jsj795 just had the same idea. i think that would be best, with the unbalanced sprite

I third that suggestion, since it's the best compromise. Have fun programming

Also, just a side note, since Axe is pretty fast and everything is either monochrome or grayscale you could possibly just let him fall through. Since there aren't multiple colors it might go unnoticed. Just a thought. What ever you do that I'm sure it'll look and feel good game wise
