I experiment my way into construct and try a few jump-n-run moves. What I want to do is:
If I press the up-arrow, the hero should jump only in Y direction and if he can grab the edge of platform or something he should hang there (like the first Prince of Presia game or Flashback).
My main problem is, that I want to use the platform behaviour so I don't have to bother about falling through the floor, running through walls, calculating gavity etc. and if I want my hero to hang on to something, then he gets automatically pushed away if that makes sense.
I first thought I could make the platforms not solid but platforms instead but I don't want the player to jump through them from below. I then thought perhaps I have to use solids an only make the small grabable edges as a platform but this seems a little strange to me or isn't it?
Thanks for any advice!
