Yeah, why is this happening?

My character spawns in the sky and then dies. Not really what I intended him to do…

Can you show your scene? And also another thing,

The box I am pointing in this image, that is the camera’s initial place, meaning at the beginning of the scene, the area inside the box will be scene.

That’s happening because you are keeping your character on the sky and its animation is also the “Die” animation. Change your Player’s position to somewhere down and near the ground and change its animation to to Idle anything other.

I have changed the layer the player sits on so he spawns on the ground, but dies as soon as the game begins

You need to setup his animation events too. Learn how to do it here.

Thank you so much :slight_smile:
