[quote:2pzxoow2]Simple mode... You can create a variable called "canMove" with value = 1... Then add to change direction controls (On press) AND (canMove=1) moves the character.
Then (On Press Key) to your animation that blocks the movement, canMove=0.
OBS: To add another condition for an event - RIGHT-CLICK it>add>add another condition>system>compare variable
You can improve this... Just an idea friend. bye!
Hey, thanks for responding! This is what I had in mind, unfortunately I can't seem to find the change direction controls for the character as seen here - [http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2qda7fq&s=8#.VX47UvlVhBc]
The current controls are copied from Scirra's tutorial on making a platformer, so I don't really know how to alter them into usable keyboard controls to place the CanMove variable on them?
