In Meadow Match, going on the FoF and grabbing a shield can result in an odd glitch

Now you see him...

And now you don't.


This also works with an Armageddon Shield, so it may have something to do with layering.

And, as a bonus, it also affects other items on the FoF

As far as I know, this is a bug with how FOFs are rendered in general. Their clipping algorithm is fairly bad, and it gets even worse when they're intangible. I think it's because they're drawn on top of whatever is below them, like sprites, so if the game gets its sector-based clipping confused, it becomes really obvious on FOFs. I think.

Though, like many other software glitches, it's a limitation of the engine and probably not fixable.

The core issues here weren't fixed.

Meadow Match was changed, though, to make this no longer happen, since it was the most blatant and obvious case.
