    Legacy GM Making tiles vanish when the player touches them?

    I'm trying to figure out how to make hidden areas behind tiles, if you go behind them they drop their alpha. I figured out how to do this for objects but I figure it would be more efficient to use tiles, more variety that way, how do I do this? I don't mind if all the hidden tiles turn alpha.

    Slip and Slide, Kirby!

    Greetings, Game Makers! I've been working on my engine, and when I was about to add a sliding action, he doesn't move! It was probably because of one of the pieces of code on his ducking action, since I couldn't get him to stop moving when he's ducking. I cleared out the sliding action, so I...
