Method of sidescrolling movement

Not sure how to make something that is snappier(can’t instantly switch directions) for a game that only has 2 directions, left and right.

Hi viil, it would be better if you just use Platformer behaviour instead, and disable the default controls. Then use Simulate pressing Left / Right events. (If you want the movement to be instant, just set Acceleration to a really high value)

If you don’t want to do that, try changing “permanent” force to “instant” force, remove the Trigger Once conditions, and remove the key released events.
