BUMP collision help

I recently started using BUMP as my collision library after giving up on trying to make collisions myself. So far everything is smooth until I wanted to change the type of collision.

I'm attachin...

But when it runs, the program runs out of memory and crashes. I cant figure out why, maybe I have to optimize my code? N...

My vision is for it to be 4 squares (or people like i call them) that spawn in a maze and go in random directions, recording all the X and Y coordinates where there are walls. Then wh...
