    In its animation, the axe in the castle has a few frames where it just isn't there. Only tested on SMB1 skin with Roll.

    I haven't seen this happening yet... any more information? Which castle, etc.

    I refreshed constantly on the loading screen. I dunno why. I'm assuming it goes for everywhere with SML2 letters on a black background. Turn on SMB1 map skin in a castle and SML2 interface.

    The axe issue relates to the way we set up the axe to have an "after" sprite, which is for cases where there is a switch. I don't know why, but it seems to be animating between the "before" and "after" sprites.

    Yeah I knew this was a bug. The way it works is a bit complicated. The axe has a variable amount of animation frames depending on the skin. I guess my formula for calculating it is incorrect.

    Oddly enough, this one only seems to happen in 1-4. I believe it is regardless of map skin used. You get this.



    It only ever seems to happen in this level, and thats it. All the rest work fine. And yes, touching it does work properly, so I'd probably put this low on the totem pole of fixes :p

    Still, it's mildly entertaining.

    Thanks Nemephosis for the video.

    Merged the two threads

    Stranger yet, you can fix it on 1-4 by changing the map skin. Then the switch graphically behaves properly.

    And it's ONLY on 1-4 this happens. It's really weird.

    I've just now discovered that this actually happens on the first castle you visit. So if you use the level select to jump straight to 7-4 or whatever, you'll see the axe vanish like that there.
    Probably why everyone just assumes it only happens in 1-4, and this might help narrow down whatever's causing it.
