# May i have some help discovering how to stop friction on walls?

I’m new at learning godot and i really need help with this

Whenever i walk “pressing” myself into a wall, my character really slows down. Is there anything i can do to solve this problem?

I’ve created my walls as a tilemap(no code, only a collision shape and the sprite)
(btw, sorry for my bad english)
my KinematicBody2D(my character sprite) code is:
.
.
extends KinematicBody2D

export var speed : int = 200

func _physics_process(delta):
var direction = Vector2()

``````direction.x = Input.get_action_strength("move_right") - Input.get_action_strength("move_left")
direction.y = Input.get_action_strength("move_down") - Input.get_action_strength("move_up")

if abs(direction.x) == 1 and abs(direction.y) == 1:
direction.normalized()

var movement = speed * direction * delta

move_and_collide(movement)
``````

From what I see the only way to do this is to disable movement on collision with the wall, so that the velocity pointing to the wall goes to 0, that way the cahracter wont slow down.

So, im guessing this is a top down game. If you dont want the character slow down or stops if colliding a wall, use `move_and_slide` insteado of `move_and_collide`.

I mean change this:

``````var movement = speed*direction*delta
move_and_collide(movement)
``````

By this:

``````var velocity = speed*direction
velocity = move_and_slide(velocity)
``````

Note that move and slide internally multiplies for delta, so i changed movement by velocity and avoided multiplying for delta there.

Thank you very much! It solved my problem :))
