Hey!

I'm working on a platform game, and I really want to make it so that the character jumps higher, the longer you hold the jump key. If you know what I mean, and can discribe to me how to do that, please do. Thank you in advance!

ps: If you have/make an example, I only have MMF 1.5

Just make it so that when you're not holding down the Jump key your downwards vertical acceleration increases while you're rising, and use a counter or alterable value so that you can't let go of the Jump key and then press it again mid jump to magically slow down and speed up.

I use a way that might be a bit overly complicated.

character's Y value is attached to a counter called 'Jump'

character's alterable value (called MODE)
0 = set jump to 0 (stop)
1 = subtract 1 from jump (moves character up)
2 = add 1 to jump (moves character down)

flag on = do nothing
flag off = force character to fall (if mode is 1 set to 2)

upon pressing button 1 sets the mode to 1 and a flag on (and maybe setting the Jump counter to -10 or something for a little jump boost)

holding button 1 keeps flag on

not holding button 1 turns flag off

flag off + mode = 1 then turn mode to 2

if counter = -20 set mode to 2 and flag off (height of jump)
