    hello everybody im working on an avoidance game but i have one trouble here, is when my character gets stuck it doesn't die and the game continues playing, i want to make it where if it gets stuck and touches the bottom of the screen to die, i tried to make the game frame smaller but it doesnt kill the character when it gets stuck, only if it touches it

    I think you can setup a Pause button and in there you setup Restart button.If you setup restart button in the game field, when the players dies, they feel lazy to go to the game over screen, and hit the restart button immediately. It cause you, can't earn from ads in game over screen :D I have experienced that. Good luck with your game.

    Otherwise if you want your character to destroy, you can make a skull like button ( auto die button ) in the top left corner, and make it a shooter button - physics object that kills the character would be spawned and touch and kill the character. Hope that helps.

    the lines that make up your game fram have three options... click on the lines themselves, if it is gray, the character will push the game along, if it is orange, it will block the character, and if it is red, it kills on contact.

    Do you have a game over ui set up?
    I think, maybe your character has died, and isn't stuck.
    If you don't have a game over ui for your game to go to when character dies, your character just sits their.
    Making it look like its stuck.
    ?????

    Check Game Over delay time and death animation frame and speed, Also does your character somehow connected to another objects ?
    like wheels for the player car ?

    Donshire, did you ever find a solution?
    I noticed that the the red-death-game-frame-line doesn't work when you both have Direct Movement and Forced Movement enabled in Character Gameplay Settings.

    And it obviously works in The Line Zen when you get trapped under a physics object. Soo is it a new bug and is there a workaround?

    I reported this to the buildbox team and they confirmed that it is a bug.
    You'll have to wait for bb 2.2.9 to see if they fixed it.
