Just when I start getting better at the game, you had to fix the double-mapping bug :)

Anyway, I've found another bug, and it's pretty easy to replicate. (I should note that I was running 1.0.1 when this happened. I'll try it in the latest version as soon as it's done downloading.)

Start by standing under an overhang on top of which there is space to stand (see image.)
You can get to this exact position by standing just a little behind where the image shows and doing an umbrella jump.
When standing in this position (it is important to be facing the right direction) do another umbrella jump.

Result: Rickard teleports to the top of the overhang with his umbrella put away (killed me the first time I did it.)

Good luck isolating the bug :)

I can confirm this for 1.0.3

Also, I have some additional information.

There appears to be no limit to how far up Rickard can teleport. I have traveled an entire screen's height by this method.
The distance from Rickard's head to the ceiling when he jumps is of critical importance. If the distance is farther than in the picture shown, you need to perform the umbrella jump in mid-air (I have done it once.)

Let me know if you need more info.

By the way, is there any way to make a replay in Afterlife 2?

Very good spot, Qabach, and thanks for the detailed report! I've now found and eliminated the bug causing this (it was an oversight, of sorts, in part of the collision detection code). I'll upload a new update soon with the fix. :)

I'm afraid that there's no built-in replay recording functionality built into the game in the same way as with the previous game. There are various screen-recording applications available on the internet which could be used to record gameplay videos, though. :)
