Welll... I have forgotten how to DarkBasic, or why.
I wanted to use a skinny sprite to detect other sprites, but the collision is not what I expected.

What is the medicine for this?
Forgive my rudimentary code, but why is the collision so far off here?
Lemme guess, I gotta use a plugin, right?

Which emojiclowns must I paste upon the message boards of your minds to garner a little sympathy here?

This is because, Sprite 1's bounding box is overlapping sprite 2. I'm sure MrValentine can recommend a good plug-in for pixel perfect collision.

After searching the forums more, I didn't realize this was such a widespread problem!

I just found something by Phaelax here:

Advanced Sprites provides pixel perfect collision. The download link is not available because of the forum upgrade. I have it installed but do not have the original ZIP archive; does anyone one else have it?

Thanks Chris!

I think I may have found a link to it here:

Not sure how many updates the plugin went through, but hopefully this will do the trick!
