var speed = 200
var velocity = Vector2()

func _ready():

func _physics_process(delta):
velocity = Vector2()
if Input.is_action_pressed(“up”):
velocity -= speed
if Input.is_action_pressed(“down”):
velocity.y += speed
if Input.is_action_pressed(“left”):
velocity.x += speed
if Input.is_action_pressed(“right”):
velocity.x -= speed


Please don’t post the same question multiple times. If you have additional information, just add it to the original post by 1) editing the post or 2) adding additional Comments.

I’d recommend that you Hide this copy of the question and continue in the original one. That way, any/all input from the community will be in the same place.

is this the exact copy of your code? or did you rewrite it? because there’s some minor typos in your code

Edit: just saw that underscores are removed if not put in code blocks…

I’d assume the issue is because of this line:

if Input.is_action_pressed("up"):
    velocity -= speed

you can’t subtract a vector by a float or int
change it to this to fix the issue:

if Input.is_action_pressed("up"):
    velocity.y -= speed

you should have an error explaining what the issue is in the debugger.
