Just some bugs I found really annoying when trying to get certain effects when making levels. They might have been mentioned somewhere before.

Firstly... When you put a Thin layer of glass infront of the Scoreboard. When looking through the glass the scoreboard doesn't appear to be there. You just end up seeing through it to the levels background :cry:

Another thing is I wanted to emit RED coloured Gas material. But when I put it through the emitter it just ended up the default yellow.

There's a good few other gammy bugs when you just working with the tools, like the emitters can be an absolute pain when you set the max emitted and it runs out while your testing, you either have to just rewind or start over.

Other suggestions I have would be a fill tool, where you have a cursor and place a bunch of dots down, these define the corners of the shape, and then when you get back to the first dot, it just fills the shape with whatever material you picked.

Another thing would be when you're selecting a group of objects with the cursor, you should be able to choose which layer you want so you don't end up disturbing something in the background.

I'd also love to see the gluing made less frustrating, especially when un-gluing things :grr:

I'm sure they'll get around to making things a bit more convenient, eventually...

Yes, there is also a bug when you put a thin layer of glass infront of gaz: You can't see the gas anymore...
It could be annoying...

When you put glass infront of fire, the fire looks like the original material. Play my level, the Forgotten relics of the sack..., search @dkjestrup. This level has a hint that abuses this!

Less abuses, more uses to awesome effect ;)

The gas bug has been around and talked about for ages.

I'm surprised they haven't fixed some of these really.. they're kinda obvious.

Also, I noticed you can Flip the scoreboard horizantally with R3. I expected it to basically not make any different. BUT turns out all the text and scoreboard info is backwards!! @_@

That's not a bug, that's just pure awesomeness :p

I've noticed that before, it is pretty cool.

What I want to know is, how do you get JUST the screen showing. Now cardboard. I know you can crush the base away to get just the backing, but that still has cardboard, and if you crush that, it destroys the screen.

Have you seen this done??

Cause I haven't.. I don't think its possible >_>

You can however put material all around the cardboard... then sticker the cardboard to look exactly like the material.

I've seen it done, you may have to do some weird glitchy things with it or you may just have to hide it.

You can also shrink or grow the scoreboard and the text will change size too. I made a scoreboard smaller than sackboy.

Now that is amazing LFF. And yes I have, Pitcard.

Actually i find this rather usefull not annoying as you can make some more unnoticable traps or that fit better in the environmen without having to be gas.
Come on people instead of complaining of bugs and such try to use them to your advantage, sure you can't do a thing or two, but for every thing you can't do with something, there are 10 you can, so just try and do the best out of it.
