It goes into the ends of the walls if I reposition them in your example. Try it.

Are you using your bullet behavior instead of my Custom Movement behavior? The reason I ask is because Iv been trying to recreate this problem with no luck. Maybe it is just a bug with the Bullet behavior.

Create a square wall_x in the middle of the field. Whenever the ball hits the top it goes right through.

Hello sqiddster

Did you remember to give the wall in the middle a solid behavior? Because it is working for me. Here is my example:

Bouncing ball wall in the middle example

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your issue. If I am could you post a capx. for me to look at? Wink2011-10-09 01:29:38

Look closely at the bounce when the ball hits the top or bottom of the middle wall. It is certainly wrong.

OK, now I see the problem. In the example above I made a wall taller than the layout size so I couldn't recreate the problem. lol This time I just made a small box in the middle. In my first example I set everything so that the ball would bounce as if it were inside a box like in a breakout game.

Now the problem is figuring out how to accurately make the ball bounce of a box in the center from all angles. I will play around with it and see if I can figure it out. This will require a different technique in other words "I will have to think outside the box." LOL

Anyway here is the capx. of the problem:

Bounce Problem

If anyone has any ideas your help would be appreciated. This one has me stumped.

It can be solved by first moving horizontally then vertically, and reversing the horizontal or vertical motion when it overlaps a wall.

Thank you very much R0J0hound for your great solution. I was going about it all wrong. It would have taken me forever to get it rite. Thanks again    Wink2011-10-10 20:13:16
