Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Top Down 2D Game - Sprite keeps falling?

Hi! I am making a top down 2D game. I have set it up so things are viewed from the "front" view in-engine instead of the top view.

It looks like this:

But when I press play the sprite keeps falling:

How can I fix this whilst still allowing player movement with the arrow keys?

I think it's because you haven't overridden the world gravity, you essentially want to turn off gravity by going to the world settings -> Override gravity, turn it on and set the value below it to 0, that should fix it. I can actually see the setting in your picture, if you look at the right, the top-most setting in World Settings says Global Gravity Z, it's grayed out because you haven't turned on the setting right above it, but this should stay at 0 as it is, you just need to enable the override.
