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"

Character disappears when at a point in tilemaps

Okay, so I've found an interesting and totally breaking bug, when using tilemaps with multiple layers (Background, foreground, top fx ect) after reaching a certain distance your character will disappear.

So, ive made two tilemaps with 32 tiles up/across and another with 200 up/across I noticed on the 32 map that I was disappearing walking roughly halfway across it, same thing for the 200 one

I've found a work around where I create a duplicate map, disable all the layers excluding the background and then move the background layer thousands of units back on the Y axis, it doesnt look any different because im using Orthographic view on the camera, but surely theres got to be some fix for this? its not an ideal solution and makes creating a game like a metroidvania impossible, any ideas if this is simple user error or a bug?
