M'kay, first of all, im late to the party since this has been reported by Scirra themselves months ago. I did a search here in the forums and didn't found anything, so apologies if it has been already discussed apart from a few comments on that blog post.
The thing is, platform jumping height in C2 is not consistent. I ran into this today (because weird bugs love me) in my project since my character jumps just enough to reach a certain number of tiles. To my surprise, while testing on a mobile device with worse performance than my pc I found out that I could only reach that height after a lot of tries. Upon further testing on pc, I saw that it fails to reach that kind of jumps sometimes. It also seems to jump a bit higher if you have horizontal speed (so it's specially problematic trying to jump over a wall while just next to it).
After employing a lot of time trying to see what may be wrong with my project, I found that blog post and saw that it was a C2 problem.
What I find kind of annoying is that while a fix is mentioned, because of possibly breaking old projects, is apparently not contemplated on C2...but C3 will have (already has?) an option to select between new precise calculation or C2's faulty one. Why not give C2 that option too?
Now, I understand that maybe it's not an easy fix, and that C3 takes priority since it's a newer product and the future of Construct. Construct 3 is pretty good for newcomers and veterans alike, but a lot of us already have C2, does what we need of it, and are in no hurry to jump to 3.
But this kind of sneaky bug can break a game (I could have released my project without noticing and players could find inconsistent (worst case impossible!) jumps not present on my testing. And the player is more likely to put the blame on devs instead of the engine, making us look bad.
Also, I don't think it's fair that C2 gets stuck with a bug considered "embarrasing" in Ashley 's own words . Consistent jumping is just basic stuff.
After a quick look on 3 for this optional fix I couldn't found it, so maybe it's still on the works and C2 is on his way for a fix too, so it may be a moot point, but it would be good to know!
