start a teamwork game.
have the first player move on to the fake acid square.
now the second player can walk on the first player.


* acid top is added to acid bottom in both the cave and the eaters.
* fake acid (only in v4) does not exist because it adds nothing to
* the game, and is different even in different versions of the emc
* player.

Hi Dave, welcome back!

Yes, the implementation of fake acid indeed allowed both players to stay on the same fake acid tile! :D

To be honest, I think this is really that sort of "nasty bug" that adds fun to the game, and should not break anything, as I am not aware of any teamwork levels that use fake acid, while there are a lot of single player levels that use it in a sensible way (like many levels in the "Down Under Mine 16" level set).

So I indeed could imagine to use that "feature" in teamwork levels that would allow players to enter a passage from different directions to pass each others at a tile with fake acid, which would otherwise be impossible! :)

Unfortunately, the current implementation of fake acid has drawbacks that are less "logical" (or funny, or useful) than that -- for example, an android approaching the player at a fake acid tile would kill it, same is true for a moving spring etc.

So I fixed it now, so there should be no difference (other than graphical) to an empty space tile anymore. (That fix will be available with the next version.)

Yes, that's all the same bug (which I have already fixed).

I have just pushed that bugfix to the public Git repository, so you can check out the fixed behaviour!
