    Programming tip! Use ";" after some stuff. Remember, do not use it during statements (like if, while, e.t.c,)!

    Hey is it possible to make cinematic platformer ?
    i mean i can do a regular platformer but it doesnt have "pull effect (turning animation)" while switching directions! also climbimg over ledges and implementing it with animations!
    basically like the old prince f Persia games.
    it seams like any key press happens after the animation is completed!
    i already have some rotroscoped sprites ready!
    any tutorial would be much appreciated 🙂

    Hey I'm having a problem.
    I did exactly what you do, but when I jump into a wall, I get stuck and then a second or two later, I fall down. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    NVM I just copied all of the movement to the parent of the ground. As long as all of my surfaces are parented to one another, I should be fine!

  13. Adam-Matic Gaming Avatar

    I also am not getting any errors, I just can't move.

    I know that this video is old but I was wondering if you could answer my question.
    I have tried many things to try to get him to move, but my player just won't do it. I thought that maybe he was getting stuck in the ground so I changed the sprite to a box. That didn't work. I tried a simpler way of getting him to move. That didn't work. I don't know what to do and I need your help!

    Instead of typing in "&&" you also use "and"
