It may not be very interesting but I made a spike 'floor' in 10 lines of code. I could have done it in less, but then it wouldn't be very readable.

I used the variable 'i' like an array. If you were to, say, move object 7 backwards a little, it would work.

I was bored so I decompressed your code
I've changed a couple of things so it works in DBC
That's a nice collection of cones you got there

Oh yeah, never use DO LOOP like that, loops are for repeating things not for just waiting.

In programming, nothing exists

1. You need one more sync (at least on my computer), otherwise the screen is just black.

2. The do-loop-method has the advantage, that the screen is still refreshed, when the application was minimized, and in your version the screen is not updated again, so you don't see anything afterwards.

There's a check to see if the program has been minimized isn't there? Then you could sync after returning and that would save... whatever it saves

[edit]
found it: SCREEN INVALID()

So the new code would be:

OK that's strange. I found that adding wait 50 before the sync made it work, but after that it doesn't work properly so forget about it.
Stick with the Do Loop thing if you really need it.
