Hi, I am trying to set up a horizontal movement that is controlled by tapping on the left/right side of the mobile screen. Right now I have 2 full screen buttons, one on the left and one on the right. I set them to OnTouch > BTN > Simulate 8 Direction Left/Right. When I test the game and click the touch buttons, it only moves the player over by 1 pixel no matter how many parameters I adjust.
I am definitely missing something because the left and right keys on the keyboard work just fine, but for some reason touching the buttons does not.
My goal is to get movement similar to Flappy Bird, but their will be gravity and the player can tap the left or right side of screen in order to boost/jump in that direction a bit.
