  • Any ideas ^^

  • I usually do processes like this using variables. For example, when player touches key and variable1 is 0, set variable1 = 1. Than I create a new condition, where if variable1 = 1, do the process of moving your object to its position. Just don't forget to set variable1 back to 0 once your object reaches it's targeted position.

  • rekjl i understand the idea but i didn't succeed ^^'

  • that's exactly what i want to do, thank you LittleStain

    but i don't understand the difference between toggle boolean and set boolean ?

  • Toggle boolean will switch the value. If boolean is true it will become false, if boolean is false it will become true..

    set boolean will set the value. If boolean is true and you set value to false, boolean will become false. if boolean is false and you set it to false, boolean will remain false..

    Like a light switch, toggle will flip the switch no matter what, turn on the light will only make a difference if the light is off..
