Moving Platforms and platformer character control

Jan 20, 2012 at 10:43 PM


I was wondering if someone could help me. I used the following tutorial to create a character controller but I have a moveable platform which is a rectangle static object which i manually move over time.The main issue I have is when the platform moves the character doesn't. Does anyone know a good way yo resolve this?

I am assuming the character doesn't move and just the wheel is spinning due to friction. If that is the case, just lock the wheel to the body with a weldjoint when the character is stationary.

Also, try not to move objects manually. Make your platform kinematic or dynamic and Apply a linear force to them instead. That might actually solve your problem.
