The two sightings of phantom Willy that I'm sure of were after entering 'End of the World' after finishing the first two levels in sequence, paid more attention when he appeared today, was there from the start of the level until completion. It doesn't disrupt play (except distraction the first time) and doesn't move. Also certainly doesn't happen very often. There is definitely a phantom platform in the same area just below the right part of the same platform and extending further to the right, Willy will sometimes go splat there when falling instead of reaching the bottom of the screen. The platform is also only intermittently there. Not a big deal, clearly not common, but rather cool. Just wish someone else could corroborate it.

Can you try this for me?

Ps. I have no idea where this phantom platform is? I have fallen everywhere and cannot find it.

Can you show me on the image here?

Did a quick sketch over the png file, ghost Willy is in a different pose
but facing left and in that area, magenta line is roughly where ghost Willy is
standing and where I've seen live Willy go splat a few times.
The test file  is bigger than the one I've been running (1.05 vs. 1.06?),
but I've downloaded it, will see if it shows up again (tried twice just now, first
three levels once through with each version, ghost Willy didn't show up, but did
manage to hit a phantom platform once, although the position seemed to be a
fully erased part of the collapsing platform below). Smiley

Did find phantom Willy and the no-platform splats in three or four more tries on the old version (1.05 I think), phantom Willy was at the same level as in the PNG but on the other side (just to the lower left, not right) of the same solid platform. Neither phantom Willy nor phantom platform effects (always when live Willy would drop off the bottom of the screen anyway) appeared in over ten more tries on 1.06. Shame really, enjoyed seeing the anomalous Willy. Tongue

Indeed it seems to have, but did you ever actually spot phantom Willy on the earlier version?
