If you still have the level (and it keeps happening, even after reloading) it is best to send it to Chronic Logic. Then they can look at it.
I rarely check this forum anymore. Feel free to send me a PM if you want my attention.

I can't see what's wrong with ropes... I just created a platform, an anchor point, connected them with ropes and it just worked. Can you be more specific about what you're doing?

ok,  i have a block, object #2, connected by 2 ropes to two anchor points, #8.  when i refresh, the ropes arent connected to the block.  they are still at the anchor points, but instead they are connected to gish, or just anywhere.  i dunno.  they just dont work for me.  maybe its a bug thatll go away in the morning or something.

thats exactly what i did.  it still doesnt work.  i have two platforms, one anchor point each, i connected both of them the exact way you showed in the video, its not working for me.  the ropes for the left platform actually switch over to the right platform (but in the right formation), and the rope(!) in the left connects from the top left corner of the platform over to gish!  i know exactly how to do ropes, but there might be a missing file or a bug or something thats keeping me from putting the ropes in right, except when i do it in other levels, it works perfect for me.  what the hell is wrong with this?!

I really don't know what you're doing, but if you just create your objects, go to the rope editor, click on an anchor point, then on the block (while holding 1-9, it defaults to 1), and repeat for the other side everything works right.

I made a movie of how it should work (if you think the cursor movement is strange: I used the trackpad and the video capture software 'locks' the screen until the next frame. Watching that is OK, but precisely controlling a cursor at 25 fps and delayed by 1/25th second is hard!).

Okay, I think I can guess what happened. Only numbers 1 and 2 are ropes. The others are different.
Oh, boy. Did the squirrels get him? It was the squirrels, wasn't it?
