Bug: hair remains blue when climbing

@SP4CEBAR The hair turns blue to tell you that you’ve used your dash. Dashes only reset on the ground, so this is intentional.

Oh, I get it

Already loving the gameplay feeling. I'm still getting my head around platformers but I have been reading through the forum and have learners a lot from Was8bit's posts. That bug where you have to fall at 1 pixel per scan really does make it hard to give it a snappy gravity fall though.

To deal with the limit of 1 pixel per frame, I implemented the collision system such that the program will snap the player to the ground before they collide with it.

By taking the current position and the velocity (pixels per frame), you can calculate the player's target position. I implemented the collision system such that it loops through each coordinate between the current and target positions.

If there is a wall in the way, I just take the position where the collision was detected and subtract the player's current position. This becomes the new velocity and the player will snap to the ground.

That's an interesting workaround!

Yeah, it works pretty well. The thing is it starts running slow when you move really fast. To solve this, I'd either have to limit the speed or make it check every eight pixels because it's tile-based anyways.
