I'm sure many people here have accidentally come across this glitch, where objects float in the air, and you can walk right through them, but you can't select them. I've managed to find a way to reproduce this glitch. It should work with any object or material:

1. Place the object/material where you want it to be frozen
2. Create a small square of any material
3. Glue the small square to your object/material
4. Using the corner editing tool, select the small square, then select a corner. Drag it to the opposite corner. You should hear a 'whoosh' noise, and the square will disappear.
5. Unpause the game. The object/material will float in the air, and you will be able to pass right through it, as if it didn't exist. You may not be able to modify this 'ghost' object, though, unless you rewind.

This sounds like a fairly useless glitch, but at least we now know how to avoid it ;P

I'm sure someone will be able to use this in a fairly effective way...

So that's how I keep wrecking objects :/

Thanks, though I doubt I'll intentionally use this for anything it's great to have a surefire way to not get the uneditable blocks anymore.

I'm sure some people could apply this to blue glass, and create a nice pass-through water effect. They better hurry up, though, as Mm will surely patch this.

I actually don't think this can be removed...

But, this could be useful to people who, oh, say they want to let others copy their level; They could put very special important stuff on it, so that the player doesn't mess with the level.

You have to place the square separately from the object, then glue the square anywhere on the object. It can be any size, thickness or material.

This have been fixed, I found another way to do this on youtube, but it doesn't work anymore: the ghosty material disappear despite you emit it with lifetime set to infinite.

i can't understand your tutorial, or perhaps your tutorial has no sense like lot of people said


Ok, you don't need to create ghost material, you can get all ghost material in the level of leedsnumber1fun.
