I'm brand new to making games and code. I'm following a tutorial by GDQuest about making your first 2d game with Godot, but I've run into an issue writing the script for the player character.
From what I can tell my code is identical to the video but when I jump, my character just takes off flying and never comes back.
func _physics_process(delta: float) -> void:
var direction: = get_direction()
velocity = calculate_move_velocity(velocity, direction, speed)
velocity = move_and_slide(velocity, FLOOR_NORMAL)
func get_direction() -> Vector2:
Input.get_action_strength("move_right") - Input.get_action_strength("move_left"), -1.0 if Input.is_action_just_pressed("jump") and is_on_floor() else 0.0
) -> Vector2:
var new_velocity : = linear_velocity
new_velocity.x = speed.x * direction.x
new_velocity.y += gravity * get_physics_process_delta_time()
if direction.y == -1.0:
new_velocity.y = speed.y * direction.y
I came across this question which was answered where the user had the same problem as me, but my issue seems to be caused by something else because as far as I can understand, my code should do the same thing.
I'm still trying to build a fundamental understanding of coding so I apologize for such a simple error.
