The Platform Behavior has an option called "allow down button" which makes your player fall through platforms when he hits the down control.
I want to allow my player to crouch while on platforms and fall through them if he jumps while holding down. I can uncheck "allow down button" and in the event sheet editor check for down AND jump and set the player to "fall through platforms", but the jump action happens before he starts falling and he winds up jumping.
If I disable the jump as a control and just check for when the shift (jump) button is pressed, I can make the character jump while standing and fall through platforms while ducking.
The problem with this is that when you make the player jump with event code, it ignores the "jump sustain" property.
Is there a better way to allow crouching on platforms, falling though platforms with down and jump, and jump sustain?
Thanks for any tips!
Wait a minute. What if I just set the player's jump strength to 0 while ducking? I think that just might work. I'll try it out.
