Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Why does my 2D Character install fall to the floor when dropping from a platform?

So my 2D Character seems to instantly hit the floor on the very next frame they walk off a platform/ledge. It's still very early on in my project and I just wanted to resolve this immediately since it's very annoying whilst I'm still working on basic mechanics.

Feels like this is an issue due to the capsule component shape possibly. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it possible to add a simple 2D Square collision instead of the capsule?

Did some investigating and it feels like it could be something collision related. The ledges I can fall of instantly and appear on the floor the very next frame, I can also run at them and basically appear on op of them the very next frame as well.
