Or just in the frame where you're behind the thrower, you are invincible and don't get crush death'd.
That works too. Are you only behind them for 1 frame?

When you pick up an arrow, the arrow always stays in the direction it was facing when you picked it up, no matter what direction you're facing.

They fixed the always facing right glitch. That's what allowed this glitch to show up: since it can face both right and left now, you can actually tell that it's not turning with you.
...On closer inspection, rocks do this as well.

Bug:
You can get free arrows for your bow from shops.
When you pick up a new bow, you gain the arrows from it.
All bows then have the same amount of arrows, so shooting from either bow will drain your supply.
The problem is that when you pick up a bow in a shop, it adds the arrows before you purchase it.
So, just pick up the unpaid bow, put it back down, and now you've got more arrows.

Fix:
1. Easier solution: only add the arrows after you buy the new bow.
2. Harder solution: have all bows hold individual supplies.

Not sure which one actually makes more sense.
Are we counting bows as magically being glued to their respective quivers or not?
Also, I don't know if your arrow count resets if you drop a bow, exit the level, and pick up a new bow on the next level.

Actually, I don't mind the idea of getting arrow refills, wether free or not.

For that matter what about the bug where you can shoot bombs... without using up any bombs. Or is that not considered a bug?

It's probably beyond the scope of 1.2, but the bow really needs an overhaul. Currently that bug is pretty much the only use for it at all. I mean it's the weakest weapon AND the only one with limited ammo.

I think it's fine. Carrying a bow around is a small price to pay to have a rocket launcher.

Fixed two small bugs:

When you pick up an arrow, the arrow always stays in the direction it was facing when you picked it up, no matter what direction you're facing.

in oArrow/Step:

    if (xVel > 0 and yVel < 0)
    {
        ...
    }

//adding the code below
    if (held)
    {   
        if (oPlayer1.facing == 18)
        {
            direction = 180;
        }
        else
        {
            direction = 0;
        }
    }
//end

    image_angle = direction;

    // ensure the arrow does not shoot through the target in the Moon challenge
    if (isRoom("rMoon"))
    {
        ...
    }

The second fix stops the mantrap from eating the spelunker while falling to sleep:

in oManTrap/oCharacter:

    ...

    else if (other.visible and other.invincible == 0)
    {
//added "and status != SLEEPY to below line
        if (status != STUNNED and status != EATING and status != SLEEPY)
        {
        ...
        }
    }

Instead of using Gamemaker 8, the game should be compiled with Gamemaker 8.1 Standard edition. It fixes a lot of bugs and performs way better then the old Gamemaker 8 did. Most of the black screen and other odd issues that happen on some computers are fixed by 8.1


I recompiled the game with Gamemaker 8.1 Standard edition and uploaded it. Source code is still .gmk though.


Edit:
For an example of the improved performance, I tried running the game with the instance_deactive/instance_activate code removed (Frozen Zone) with compiled with both versions on an older Celeron D processor. With GM8, it dipped down below 30fps at times. With GM8.1, it stayed at a constant 30fps.
