I have been looking all over for a few days now and I can't figure out why the ysort isn't working with my tileset. I'm working on a top down game and I'm trying to get a top cliff ledge working so that it overlaps the player when they walk above it, but the player overlaps it when they walk below it. Easy, I thought. Nothing seems to work. I've even tried other people's solutions and it doesn't work. I'm starting to think my copy of godot is bugged.

These are the methods I've tried:
-One ysort node that the player and cliffs are both in.
-Turn on/off ysort for the cliffs.
-Parent player to tileset.
-Put a second ysort node inside of my main ysort node and put the tileset in it.
-It the player and the tileset in the second ysort node alone.
-Parent player to tileset inside of the second ysort node.
-Rearranged the order of all the objects inside of the main ysort node.

I've probably done even other methods that I didn't list here just because I was desperate to get it working. No amount of googling has done any good.

If anyone knows of some kind of workaround or something I haven't done, please let me know.

For more background that might help give ideas to my problem: I was originally using 3.0 and converted my project to 3.1. I'm on windows 10. I'm using the same tres file for my cliff tileset as I am for my terrain tileset which is correctly behind the player. I've made other objects, such as trees with regular sprite nodes instead of tilesets and they all work fine. I drink too much coffee for my own good. Idk what else to say here. I'm trying to stay positive about this, because it's frustrating me to no end that something so simple isn't working properly no matter what I do.

I don't really want to make each individual cliff piece it's own node, like I did with my trees. I'd much rather use a tileset, but if I can't get the ysort working on tilesets I don't know what else to do.
