How do I add in a 2 character tether mechanic

I am trying to make a Sonic fangame. (I know, cringe, i guess.) Its trying to repliacte the ring tether mechanics of Knuckles Chaotix. you would go into a level with 2 characters, and they would be tied together with a ring tether. I am trying to replicate this mechanic, and I can say after 3 days of hitting my head against a proggraming wall, I should probally ask somebody for help. You wont understand the ring tether unless you see it in action, so heres a link to a full playthrough of knuckles chaotix, for you to scroll through. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNeTvzNq9UA The leading player tugs the second character along with them. They will follow the other player, through loops, and slopes, and gravity defying stunts. I am not providing a screenshot of my events because im not asking for something to be fixed. The system just dosn’t work.

hi did you find a solution for your issue
