Problems with walking, jumping and falling animations

Godot Version



Hello everyone. I’ve been racking my brains for two days, hoping for your help.

  1. The falling animation doesn’t allow a second jump and dash, while playing
  2. The walking animation continues if you press the button and hold the direction button. It only turns on while moving.
  3. The jumping animation (or falling, if you turn it on) near the wall and on the floor loops

Thanks for the advice, I corrected the post

Maybe you can at least help fix the looping of falling near the walls. I’ll cut out the walking. I hope you can help with something. Here’s my all code.


  1. Your double jump logic is in the move_state function, try moving it to jump_state and/or jump2_state
  2. Similarly the walking state does not do anything to change direction, that’s handled in move_state
  3. Seems like JUMP state will never be set since JUMP2 satisfies all the same conditions, try using elif on your jumping conditions. not sure why it’s looping, seems like it would be cut off often

I have been studying the engine for 2 months, could you help me with writing this code. If it is not too much trouble for you. I understand what you mean, but not yet enough to know where and what to insert. If you do not want to help, I will understand and what you have presented above is already better than nothing

and I once again, for the second time, added move_and_slide
I reduced the speed because it doubles, but part of the code started working correctly, except for the walk. I will cut walking out of my life as well)

Sorry if something is wrong, English is not my native language

I would not add move_and_slide twice, it’s in a great spot inside _physics_process. Two of those can cause strange collision issues.

Most of the issues you are having are because you have added a “State Machine” but only one state does much. It might be better for you to remove the State Machine, or split your func move_state() into the other states.

For instance let’s look at walking. To get there you must press walk, and be on the floor.

if direction and Input.is_action_just_pressed("Walk") and is_on_floor_only():
	velocity.x = direction * WALK
	state = WALKING

Note how the velocity.x is set here, this is where any movement will come from. Then state = WALKING is set, so we will not return to move_state until state is set again. So let’s see what happens in walk_state.

func walking_state():"Walking")
	if Input.is_action_just_released("Walk"):"Idle")
		state = MOVE

We can see it plays the “Walking” animation, that’s good. Then it checks if we released the “Walk” action, plays a new animation (we could remove this) and state = MOVE so we’re back to moving.

But it never sets velocity.x = ??? we should add that logic to walking too, or else we walk in the same direction forever regardless of input. Most of these states should take input, not just play animations!

func walking_state():"Walking")
	var direction := Input.get_axis("left", "right")
	velocity.x = direction * WALK

	if Input.is_action_just_released("Walk") or direction.is_zero_approx():"Idle")
		state = MOVE

Ooooh, so, yes, I began to understand. The only thing is that now It began to swear at this, but I think I will figure it out. Thank you very much for your help.
error text - is_zero_approx - cannot find property on base float

a right it would be is_zero_approx(direction)
