Hello, new user here so advanced thanks for any help.
I'm using the Platform controls for my main character but it bobs up and down as it walks left/right. Is that just a feature of the Platform controls or can I turn that off?
It would be easier to answer your question if you would post your CAPX...

Awesome, have it fixed now. Thanks a ton!
Just a quick tip: it's usually best to have an invisible square sprite with the platform movement, and position your animated player on top of that. The square sprite with the movement will ensure the movement is always smooth and never gets stuck.
