    I have read all the isometric related postings but still stuck with an issue. I created a long cube, set the game direction to -28 but having following challenges:

    - The cubes don't align with each other
    - The ball does not attempt to jump

    I have linked a bbdoc file which is just basic.

    Any help or guidance would be much appreciated .

    Thanks

    I was able to align the cubes. One was cube angle and also game settings.

    For unknown reasons, the jump isn't working

    You have the cubes set as decorations, so the character doesn't have anything to jump from like a platform.

    Yes I tried to follow what was used for Diamond Hunters:

    If im not mistaken, In Diamond Hunters the character is only moving left to right not jumping. Which is why decoration will not work the type of game that you are creating.

    Ah i see what you mean but it was platform I first did but the character didn't still jump and its movement was out of place. Not sure what the collision setup should be? As seen, its moving sideways

    if you want to make games like ball jump?
    your game uses a sliding dick instead of jumping

    I was playing with this and found that the next scene will always be on top of the previous, so you need to make your graphics blend, or have a gap like they do in ball jump. so you don't have any over lapping platforms.

    Oh well since I am not getting anywhere with this, @TreySmith am I correct to say with Buildbox v2, it now becomes easy to make simple games like Zig Zag using the Zig Zag preset and JUST simply changing the graphics without having to bother asking more settings questions?

    Even better. Now i see the trick you used for cubes joined between scenes :D
    Just one more request. I notice when you jump, the platform moves up and down. Can I control that with the camera so it does not move up and down?

    Thanks
