My real goal was to check for 5 of the same objects in a row using the overlapping at offset method. Well when that didn't work i got the idea to create a object that was the size of 5 objects and check to see if that overlapps and it works. I have no idea why the overlapping at offset doesn't work for me.
Sorry rfisher, I have no idea. The way I'm currently using it on relies on 2 different sprites, the only thing that comes to mind is that perhaps it can't overlap its own sprite. But I can't see why that would happen.
