Player.dy = 0;
}

What are you saying? the hittest is set to true when an object's boundary's are collide with another's.

That is because every frame the objects position will increment by the speed. Meaning if the speed is 5 and the object is 2 px from the ground, the object, falling straight down, will end up 3 px in to the ground.

The best way to do this is to move the object until it is hovering slightly above the ground. Here's a simple algorithm.

// while the object is touching the ground
while(player.hitTest(ground._x, ground._y, true)){
// move to contact
player._y--
}

unfortunately i tried that in my game and it didn't seem to do much good other than the player falling through thanks though I have found another way
