How to keep jump height normal on vertical moving platforms?
My son has been going through the tutorial to make a platform game. We have the windows version. He is feeling frustrated as for some reason (I don't know what he has done), whenever he jumps on one of the platforms that moves up and down, the height of his jumps seem to change. When the platform moves towards the bottom of the screen, he can do really high jumps (higher than normal), but as the platform moves up, his jumps get considerably shorter, and sometimes he cannot jump at all. Sometimes each jump is about half the height of the previous jump. But when he makes it onto a fixed surface, his jumps go back to normal. Does anyone know why this might happen? Is the problem with the hero or with the moving platform?
Thanks in advance!
