    Getting better Ron.
    You're nearly there on this one, there is just a few more spots you can tidy up.
    Here's some notes for you.

    -f05, with this jump, make sure the stretch is happening while the ball is in contact with the ground. Just like he is pushing off the ground to get the upward momentum.
    -f45. Make the most extreme stretch the last frame that is stuck to the ground and then start decreasing once he is in the air. This goes back to note above.
    -Jumps on the platform. Try 3 frames of contact with these jumps. At the moment the push off is happening in the air when it should happen on the ground.
    -f176-178, make sure the ball doesn't slow down before the ground.
    -f180-182, check the arc here.

    -Also check all t he jumps to see if the top of the ball sticks in place while the bottom goes up and down, making it feel like the top is squashing on an invisible ceiling. (eg f202)

    Keep going Ron. These issues are all related to the same thing, so once you see how to fix one spot, apply the same idea to the other areas.

    Keep up the good work.

    Sometimes the ball seems to bounce on the air.
