    Portals do not work with advanced moves.

    If I want to flip a character upside down, and then have them pass through a portal, it won't work, just skips over the portal like it isn't there. I can use timeout to make it go back to the original form, but that defeats my purpose.

    Specifically, I'm using a switch, with two advanced moves on the character... Flip Up, and Flip Down.

    Also doesn't work if you're actively holding down a button for the advance move.

    Testing things out and found that creating a crouch button (think of Trey's game The Pit), I created an advanced move to make the character crouch while still moving. If the character goes through a portal while crouched, nothing happens. As soon as I stop holding down, the character appears at the other end of the portal. Very strange and not what I believe was intended.

    This could be used to make a player crouch (slide) under a block to hit a portal. But if they keep their finger on the screen they'll just keep going, until they release, then they'll portal.

    Bump... and a video to show what I'm talking about, in case it's confusing.

    @GTE Games can you send example file over to support@buildbox.com if you haven't already? This actually does make sense of a portal issue reported prior but couldn't reproduce.

    Sent as requested. The file I sent is only the second demo from the video as I overwrote the first part.

    This is really easily reproduced though. Glad to know it's not how it was intended.

    I'm using BB 2.2.3 B#1271
