    So i want my character bullet to be destroyed if it hits an object.
    I can get the bullet to destroy if it hits an enemy, but i can't make it happen when hitting a fixed object, such as a platform.. or a wall for example.
    So what am i missing, seems only to be possible to destroy character bullet with an enemy...
    Any advice would be great thanks...

    Put a transformer to each object that moves the bullet out of the screen. I think it’s the only way.

    You could make a game object set it to destroy character bullets. Set its health to 99999999. Then place them on the sides of your platforms or where you want the bullet to be destroyed.

    Yes. Just thought that too. It should work by adding health and damage to the character bullet and the platforms. This way you would have a death animation of the bullet.

    Thanks guys. @Christoph @spicedbeangames
    But it doesnt work, and I'm not sure why.. Only objects that are set to enemy (destroy character) will destroy the bullet.
    Ive tried setting my bullet to character bullet, which only enemies all destroy it.
    I've tried setting my bullet to just an object set to destroy enemy, added health and damage, but it still won't get destroyed.
    Only way i can manage to destroy the bullet is if all objects are set to enemy, which is no good as my character will just die.
    It must work somehow, ill keep playing around..

    Put it to enemy. But in the damage value put it to zero. So it doesn’t destroy the character.

    Tried that, but its still not destroying the bullet.
    The bullet seems to be taking on the character role....
    i even tried making the platform an enemy, gave my character health 9,99999,99999,
    Bullet health zero, and it still doesnt destroy the bullet..

    Hmmm. What are you using? 2.3.3? Have you tried it in 2.2.9? It sounds like a bug...if I have time I’ll try myself tomorrow.

    @spicedbeangames
    so the set up that you showed is good, but unfortunately doesnt quite suit my game...
    But i think i may have figured out a few work arounds.
    Thanks so much for the video, and your time.
    I might have to end up going that way, but don't really want to change my bullet set up...
    Its probably the fact that I'm doing something weird that doesnt want it to work, hahah

    You can use the same idea, if you want your bullets to be destroyed on platforms. You will need to play around with the sizes of the enemy object that destroys the bullets and place it at the sides of your platform.

    It could create problems if your character collides with these objects (he will die), so you may have to make them tiny enough to register the bullet impact without touching your character - if that makes sense.

    it does thanks,
    i was thinking of putting an enemy object set to zero opacity over all the walls and platforms, a bit smaller than the size, but i have already made 80 scenes, and dam that will be a lot of work, hahahah
    And yes i made 80 scenes then decided i wanted my character shoot, hahahahahaha.
    Also i tried adding in an enemy object inside the animation box of my platform and walls, but it doesnt work, dam
