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"

How do I change the default mobile Thumbstick input to Left + Right DPad?


I'm not sure it's clear in the title, but basically I'm attempting to create a mobile game which is a 2D Side Scroller. My goal is to have the player navigate the level using 3 buttons:

  • Left

  • Right

  • Jump

I've added the Jump button through a HUD and it's working fine, but I can't wrap my head around how the TouchInput system works. Can anyone explain to me how I'd change the Thumbsticks into buttons? I've tried doing the buttons on a HUD but if I press left and then drag to right, the character will keep moving left. I have to lift up the finger and press down on right.

Thanks in advance!


I mean, swapping the Thumbstick for the controls displayed on the lower part of the picture:

This is an example of what I'm trying to do
