A little stuck and could do with any sudjestions.

When the character goes past the middle of the screen, the background & level move downwards so the character can get to higher places, think sonic the hedgehog.

This is the bit I'm having problems with, I can get the character to get to the center, the background moves up & down but the character won't go back down when the level returns to normal height.

    if bkGroundRect['rect'].top < 0 and charRect['rect'].top < winCenterRect.top:
        bkGroundRect['rect'].top += spY
        platRect['rect'].top += spY
        jumpRect.top += spY
        charRect['dir'] = STOP

    if levelRect['rect'].bottom > winHeight and charRect['rect'].centery == winCenterx:
            bkGroundRect['rect'].bottom -= spY
            platRect['rect'].bottom -= spY
#            jumpRect.bottom -= spY
            charRect['dir'] = STOP

  #--this won't execute ? --#       
    if levelRect['rect'].bottom <= winHeight:
        if charRect['rect'].centery >= winCenterx and charRect['rect'].centerx < jumpRect.centerx:
            charRect['dir'] = DOWN

I've included the whole code as a note pad so the above makes more sense, don't worry about all the comments, that's just for my convenience.

Thanks guys
