How do I… add a jump cooldown?

What is the expected result

What is the actual result

Use a timer (scene or object), and to the character add a boolean instance variable, say called JumpCoolingActive.

Uncheck the platform character behaviour to use default values:

Because you aren’t using the default controls, you’ll have to code for the movement keypresses. Use the following events as a guide (change to timer check value for longer/shorter delays):

Im sory but ur advice didnt work, i made a youtube video on my project so that might help. if it looks low quatity, go on fullscreen

also i might not reply staright away cuz i might be asleep

Can you screen shot the events? Because that snippet I posted worked fine for me, so I suspect you’ve mistyped something.

sorry but i have to sleep and ill be in school a few minutes after i wake up so my next reply might be in a few hours
