It's really difficult to find a workaround, easily... you will have to guess, try and retry
But something I know is, because the engine loads 2 screens at the same time... it is possible that sometimes your collisions are not correct (usually during screen transitions / warp oo?). Also the edges (first/last col/row) is usually causing issue.
And, the code engine is not the same for odd and even screens.
The 4.1.5 has its specifies and a bunch of bugs/issues.

With all those parameters, you need to try to find workaround for your screen. (moving the warp tile far from the edge on that screen... check how is the next/previous screen collision wise, ... or just place the screen at another place, if it works there, ....)

Will do , my work around for the messy layout right now is to duplicate it to the underworld tile in the same place and link to it.
