Oh. I didn't see that part. I had already gotten it working before the Q/A posted my question (I guess they check post before making them public) so when I saw yours, I only skimmed and the first paragraph kinda confused me. But yes, the multiple animations was the way! Thanks :)
I am now struggling on getting the moveandslide() to STOP ON A SLOPE lol it's killing me, that problem.
Godot is fun, tho. I like it better than Unity and Unreal.
