I think Rich is making bendy objects
Well this solves the problem I was having with making a rope.
(Create Hinge wasn't working at all, it just didn't connect the rope segments which were just 3x1px lines with the hotspot on the left and imagepoint "e" at the right (beginning and end). I made a few things and came up with:
"RopeSeg overlaps RopeSeg"
"RopeSeg('rid') = RopeSeg('rid')"
(It probably died here by not defining that I was trying to use two different instances of one object)
"RopeSeg: Set position to RopeSeg (image point "e")"
"RopeSeg: Create hinge to RopeSef (image point "e")"
A bunch of 3x1px lines lying around the ground.
